“Cultures Connecting were outstanding collaborators with The Mockingbird Society in the production of our DVD, “Biracial and Multiracial Identity Development.” They brought both their personal experiences and professional expertise to the project. Our audience, caregivers in the foster care system many of whom are caring for biracial and/or multi-racial children, reported the DVD excellent!”

Jim Theofelis – Executive Director, The Mockingbird Society

“Cultures Connecting brought understanding, insight and common ground when talking about understanding the African American culture at our historically Japanese American church.  As our church has changed to be more culturally diverse we had to take a look at how we receive and can love one another for who we are.  Their presentation kick-started us to move in this direction by opening up conversation about these very sensitive and personal issues.”

Julie Chee – Director of Children’s Ministry, Japanese Presbyterian Church

“The training with Cultures Connecting was a great way for us to get some dialogue going between staff and to open the door for discussions around cultural sensitivity, accountability and awareness.  Our staff arrive at the table with many  different perspectives … and when one of them who is from Ethiopia said, “I enjoy that we are talking about this because where I come from … they just have civil wars!”  How nice it would be if we could all just be committed to talking and opening up our minds to celebrate the different things we each bring to the table!  My thanks to Cultures Connecting for helping us re-ignite that process and for challenging us to keep it going!”

Katie Parker – Regional Director of Resident Services, Intercommunity Mercy Housing

“Cultures Connecting presented a powerful 3-hour workshop on Cultural Competence as part of our Leadership Development Program. During the workshop we dug deeper into the causes and roots of the issue of race, leaving the surface behind.  We learned how to be comfortable with being uncomfortable and to ask if we don’t know how to behave.  Cultural understanding is critical to the work of housing and community development and this workshop provided the opportunity for us to build new skills.”

Lee Murray – Leadership Development Program, Housing Development Consortium
