Cultural Considerations in Assisting Victims of Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking

November 13, 2010 @ 11:30 am - 8:30 pm

This one-day workshop, facilitated by Joy M. Zarembka, MA and Tanya M. Odom, Ed.M, will explore the complex cultural, social and economic context that prevents victims from seeking help. The goal is to increase participants’ effectiveness in identifying, interviewing, and assisting survivors of human trafficking by providing:

  • Increased knowledge and skills for overcoming those barriers and working effectively across barriers
  • Building skills and practical strategies to work effectively across cultures

Thanks to special funding, NMCI is able to offer this workshop at the discounted rate of $50.00 per person

Joy M. Zarembka, M.A. is the interim director for the Institute of Policy Studies. She was the director of the Break the Chain Campaign, an advocacy organization that works to end modern-day slavery and human trafficking in the D.C. area. She also serves as an expert witness on trafficking and worker exploitation in civil and criminal cases.

Tanya M. Odom, Ed.M is a consultant, coach, and Assistant Professor in Georgetown University’s Human Resource Management program. She is also the Director of Innovation and Social Media at the Future-Work Institute. She co-facilitated NMCI’s November 2009 workshop on Human Trafficking.

This special one-day workshop is offered as part of a larger Diversity Leadership Conference – Navigating Differences in a Changing World: Dialogues on Diversity, Culture, and Identity.
