This Learning and Reflection Forum from the Leadership Institute on Cultural Diversity and Cultural and Linguistic Competence explores the experiences of organizations in Arizona, California, and Maryland in their successful initiatives to engage African American, Chinese, and Latino/Hispanic communities in support of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities across the lifespan. Viewers will be able to: (1) examine the conceptual frameworks, values, and practices of cultural and linguistic competence within the context of community engagement, and (2) describe approaches and strategies to engage diverse communities to plan, implement, and evaluate services and supports for individuals who experience developmental and other disabilities and their families. Viewers are encouraged to reflect on the role of leadership in bringing about organizational and system change.
