The COVID-19 Network Presents: Cultural Humility Sessions to Build Competency Training of Pro Bono Attorneys to Represent Diverse Low-Income Clients.

The training will help pro bono volunteers learn the skills to better serve diverse low-income clients. The training begins with three 20-minute on-demand modules (available now) covering an introduction, intersectionality, and language access.

Participants are encouraged to send their questions and reflections after each module to [email protected] and [email protected]. These are followed by a series of live one-hour sessions that will run through June 2021. These sessions aim to build skills in cross-cultural representation of diverse low-income clients by building on the learning, lessons, and questions from the previous modules. Check the event calendar on the tab marked ‘Upcoming Events’ to register for the remaining live sessions.
