Facilitated by Ian Evison and Lisa Presley, Congregational Life Consultants, MidAmerica Region, UUALisa Presley, Congregational Life Consultant

Growing and deepening our capacity for successful multicultural ministries and stronger intercultural relationships is critical to the fulfillment of our vision for Unitarian Universalism and building the beloved community. In these days of increasing complexity in diversity in our world, and our congregations, learning how to work more effectively with people who are different than us is important—we need to develop skills and attitudes that assist us in getting where we want to go.

During this workshop, you will learn about the Developmental Model of Intercultural Sensitivity. The DMIS posits that we have the ability to learn how to be more interculturally competent—that we go through stages of ability and attitudes, and that we have the ability to increase our abilities. It provides tools for learning in order to advance your competency. The model is about the “differences that make a difference” in every setting—whether that be race, class, culture, gender, sexual orientation, or any other difference that might be key in our interactions. It is applicable in congregational life, but also in your work, leisure and private life—anywhere when differences in culture and outlook might differ, the tools of the DMIS can help you increase your competency.
