This Learning and Reflection Forum from the Leadership Institute on Cultural Diversity and Cultural and Linguistic Competence uses a cultural lens to explore the multiple beliefs and views about intellectual and developmental disabilities. The forum also examines what it takes to lead services and supports when cultural beliefs and views of intellectual and developmental disabilities. Viewers will be able to: (1) define culture and cultural diversity, (2) explore the concept of multiple cultural identities, (3) describe the convergence of cultural contexts that impact people with disabilities and their families, and (4) discuss culturally-defined values and practices that may differ between service providers and people with disabilities and their families. Viewers are encouraged to reflect on the leadership implications of disability services and supports through a cultural lens.
