This Learning and Reflection Forum from the Leadership Institute on Cultural Diversity and Cultural and Linguistic Competence features the voices of a diverse panel of people with developmental disabilities, how they view self-advocacy, and what self-advocacy means from their unique cultural perspective. It also offers insights and examples from a national organization that is responsive to culture in supporting self-advocacy for culturally and linguistically diverse populations. The forum explores: the role of leaders in discovering, respecting, and responding to the culturally-defined determinants of self-advocacy. Viewers will be able to: (1) define self-advocacy, (2) describe the culturally-defined determinants that influence self-advocacy, (3) explain how organizations tailor self-advocacy efforts to the cultural and linguistically diverse populations that they serve, and (4) reflect on leadership that supports culturally-informed self-advocacy at the individual, family, and community levels.
