Diversity and Multiculturalism

August 25 - August 29

Global Ties ABQ is proud to host an IVLP program on diversity and multiculturalism. This program is a regional project for Africa and we welcome 11 visitors from Algeria, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Cote d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Gabon, Mali, Rwanda, Senegal, and Tunisia. This program will focus on the following objectives outlined by the US State Department:

• Provide insight into the moral, philosophical, and cultural traditions that enable Americans to practice and discuss freedom of association, expression, and worship;
• Explore the role of civil society leaders in the community and their cooperative efforts with minority groups to manage diversity in society;
• Examine the impact of multiculturalism on political life in the United States and the reasons for the separation of government and religion;
• Compare and contrast different education models at the primary, secondary, and higher education levels to see how they promote understanding between and among different faith and ethnic communities;
• Demonstrate the importance of charitable and community activism in education, social service initiatives, youth affairs, and health care; and
• Illustrate best practices in the management of nonprofit entities that deal with aspects of diversity and multiculturalism.

The delegation will be here on August 25 – 29, 2018 and will be networking with local resources. If you would like to get involved please check out our “Get Involved” link or contact us at 505-888-1867.
