It’s the fundamental transformation of ICE. Immigration Agency managers challenged to be agents of change and to recognize their own culture biases.
(CNSNews.com) – The Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) says 20 of its “high-level” managers have just completed a training program at the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles, making ICE the first federal law enforcement agency to partner with the museum on training of this type.
The intensive, three-day course focused on “promoting greater cultural awareness” among members of ICE’s leadership team.
“There’s a current exhibit at the Museum of Tolerance that asks visitors to ‘change the way you see and see the way you change,'” said ICE Director Sarah R. Saldaña. “That’s really the crux of what we’re seeking to accomplish through this joint initiative. We want ICE’s leaders to be agents of change, taking what they learn in this training and using it to transform the way they tackle the daily challenges they face in the workplace.”
The course, using the museum’s interactive exhibits, challenges participants to “recognize their own inherent cultural biases and identify ways to develop progressive leadership practices in their respective programs,” the news release said.
Last week’s class was the first of three training sessions ICE anticipates hosting at the Museum of Tolerance this year.
