This Learning and Reflection Forum from the Leadership Institute on Cultural Diversity and Cultural and Linguistic Competence focuses on: (a) historical trauma from the perspective of African American, American Indian, and Muslim communities in the United States; and (b) what leaders can do to acknowledge these injustices and forge relationships that foster mutual respect, understanding, and healing. Viewers will be able to: (1) Identify and describe the historical and present trauma experienced by members of diverse racial, ethnic, disability, religious, and LGBTQ communities; (2) cite approaches to engage communities that have experienced historical trauma, and (3) describe five culturally and linguistically competent approaches to engage communities affected by historical trauma. Viewers are encouraged to reflect on what it takes to lead in challenging circumstances resulting from historical trauma and community wounds.
