Steps to Achieving Cultural Competence
Where are you or your organization at on your DEI journey?
Whether you are just getting started or you have a good comprehension of diversity, equity, and inclusion, this session is for you.
There are many challenges affecting the availability of opportunities for black-owned/run businesses and their employees. Many other minority groups face similar circumstances. Attendees who bring an open mind, and a genuine interest to learn about DEI issues to this event can develop a better awareness and understanding of where they and their organization are on the continuum, and how to continue taking meaningful steps toward great equity of opportunity.
When we show up as our better self, our businesses and communities are better for it, and positive change is imminent!
The session will introduce businesses to the 6 stages of the cultural competence continuum, and will highlight African Americans who made a positive impact along the continuum.
- Understanding the 6 levels of the continuum
- Recognizing African Americans who have positively impacted various stages
- Assess where you and your company are along the continuum
