This Learning and Reflection forum from the Leadership Institute on Cultural Diversity and Cultural and Linguistic Competence is designed to offer examples from organizations that have recognized their own limitations, or those within the systems in which they are involved, related to the lack of cultural diversity and marginal attention that is given to fostering cultural and linguistic competence. Viewers will be able to: (1) define a model of cultural competence including the role of policy in its implementation; (2) define linguistic competence (Goode & Jones framework), (3) cite legal mandates and requirements (policy directives) for language access for individuals with limited English proficiency, (4) describe three approaches to influence change in organizational and public policy that promote cultural diversity and advance and sustain cultural and linguistic competence. Viewers are encouraged to reflect on the role of leadership in bringing about such change.
