Building Cultural Equity with Native Nations
The State-Tribal Collaboration Act mandated training is all new for FY20! Formerly known as “Cultural Competency,” the course is now titled “Building Cultural Equity with Native Nations,” and it is open for enrollment on the ELM system.
Pursuant to the State-Tribal Collaboration Act: All state agency managers and employees who have ongoing communication with Indian nations, tribes or pueblos shall complete a training provided by the state personnel office with assistance from the Indian affairs department, which training supports: (1) the promotion of effective communication and collaboration between state agencies and Indian nations, tribes or pueblos; (2) the development of positive state-tribal government-to-government relations; and (3) cultural competency in providing effective services to American Indians or Alaska Natives.
In this training, participants will develop a better understanding of how to engage and collaborate with Native communities in New Mexico. Participants will learn the omitted history of Native Nations in this country and its impact, as well as best practices of New Mexico Tribes and Pueblos. Through the duration of the course, participants will engage in interactive exercises to grow their awareness and knowledge of what it means to work more collaboratively with Native Peoples.
This training is for New Mexico State Government employees only. This class is offered free of charge. Seating is limited; please register soon to reserve your place. You will receive a confirmation of your registration via an auto-generated email from ELM sent to the email address you identified in SHARE HCM as your primary email address.
Any state-issued delay (i.g., inclement weather) will result in the class being canceled. In the case of a cancellation, please use the ELM system to identify and register for the next class offering, or contact us for more information.
