This webinar will discuss best practices to increase cultural responsiveness in service provision. As a result, attendees will learn how to increase recovery capital and better integrate Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities and families into recovery ecosystems. Attendees will gain a better understanding about the essential diversity efforts needed for BIPOC communities and the lesser-known demographic factors that must be addressed to improve recovery outcomes.
