6 Week Professional Development Course

The systems and institutions that oppress people are not our fault, however, we must take responsibility to dismantle ineffective systems in order to build equity for all. We must move from looking at diversity to moving toward cultural competence in our organizations. What does diversity mean? Nothing. Ask any number of people, get any number of answers. We have asked our people to not think in terms of diversity, but to think of where they fall on a continuum of cultural competence. This has shaped and shifted how we do our work internally as well as with the public.
