Cultural diversity plans are one the NCA standards. Everyone has biases that are often unconscious yet impact the way we do business. This workshop addresses one CAC’s unique response to dealing with diversity by identifying areas of team bias and recognizing how it might affect a family and the case.

This process and team members ‘response to it will be discussed in this workshop.
