Hastings, Neb. - A free intercultural leadership training is set for Wednesday, May 31, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Hastings, Nebraska, at Heartland Bank, 3701 Osborne Dr. W. 

Sponsored by the Center for Rural Affairs, the session will focus on improving intercultural leadership skills from three perspectives: individual, organizational, and community.

Featured speakers will be Center staff members Carlos Barcenas, community organizer, and Jordan Feyerherm, project organizer.

“Participants can learn more about working among people with cultural differences, improve communication techniques, and create a more welcoming and inclusive workplace,” Feyerherm said.

Speakers will focus on identifying and confronting nonconscious bias, creating meaningful and lasting change within organizations, and developing skills valuable to the workforce.

“It’s no secret that our current political climate has challenged us to have uncomfortable conversations about issues that impact our communities and organizations,” Feyerherm said. “Jump into safe, fun, and challenging conversations about developing intercultural leaders.” 

Seating is limited. RSVPs are required by 8 p.m. on Tuesday, May 30. Lunch is available for $5 or participants may bring their own. 

To RSVP, contact Feyerherm at jordanf@cfra.org or 402.580.1516. For more information or to register online, visit www.cfra.org.
