 Revised Human Trafficking Webinar banner

Are you interested in learning more about cultural competency and utilizing cultural competency resources?


The Southeastern Health Equity Council (SHEC) released its Cultural Competency Resource Guide in fall 2015. This guide is comprised of resources, trainers, institutions, and publications about cultural and linguistic competency that can be shared with the 10 Regional Health Equity Councils (RHECs), stakeholders, and partners to help address cultural barriers with healthcare systems. Additionally, this guide includes important terms for members of the SHEC to become familiar with as the Council develops a common language around cultural competency. To view the resource guide, visit http://region4.npa-rhec.org/in-the-spotlight/resourceguidewhitepaper.


To follow up with the release of the Cultural Competency Resource Guide, the SHEC will host four webinars in various regions of the country.  The webinars will include speakers from organizations that focus on cultural competency.  Upon completion of this webinar, the participant will be able to accomplish the following from the specific organizational perspective:

  1. Identify human trafficking victimization;
  2. Describe the intersectionality of social determinants and human trafficking;
  3. Explain the importance of trauma-informed care through a cultural competency lens;
  4. Discuss best practices for multidisciplinary and collaborative partnerships; and
  5. Identify cultural competency assessment and evaluation tools.


During this webinar, Sunny Slaughter will share her trademark presentation, "Marginalized. Masked. Missed.™", a discussion on addressing human trafficking victimization through a cultural competency lens.
