Project Description

The Diversity Training Program is part of our mission to inform and educate the Community of Erie to value diversity. Since 1998, MCRC has had the privilege of working with people from all over the world, and in providing services to some very diverse populations, we have acquired considerable knowledge and skills that have enabled us to create a comprehensive Diversity Training Program with a wide variety of workshops options.

This training is available to all organizations in the Greater Erie area who are interested in:

  • Promoting a diverse workplace
  • Increasing their knowledge base in the areas of Cultural Sensitivity, Awareness and Competence
  • Learning more about the different new populations that are starting to call Erie their home
