This Learning and Reflection Forum from the Leadership Institute on Cultural Diversity and Cultural and Linguistic Competence explores the intersection of guiding values and principles of cultural and linguistic competence (CLC), as put forth by the Georgetown University National Center for Cultural Competence, within the context of organizations that represent, advocate with and on behalf of, and provide services and supports to individuals with developmental disabilities and their families. Through presenter personal narratives and discussion, viewers are provided: (1) key values and principles that guide CLC in organizational settings, and (2) the elements of cultural competence at the organizational level, and types of organizational policies and how they intersect with guiding values for CLC. Viewers are encouraged to apply lessons learned from disability organizations engaged in CLC policy development, and reflect on the role of leadership in aligning organizational values and CLC policy.
