Diversity & Inclusion

Cultural Proficiency is a lifetime journey.

Cultural Proficiency provides healthy and compassionate responses to differences in race, ethnicity, language, gender, sexual orientation, physical and mental ability. In a culturally proficient organization, clients, colleagues and community learn about and grow from their similarities and their differences.

Cultural competence is a point on continuum, which describes appropriate and inappropriate responses situations and events in a variety of cross-cultural environments. Cultural proficiency is the ideal state.

This approach starts with the core values and cultural expectations of your organization and assists both individuals and organizations to establish policies and practices that are both welcoming and inclusive.

We have introduced cultural proficiency to a wide range of organizations across the country, including schools, hospitals, universities, not-for-profit organizations and faith-based organizations.

Our work with you may include, but certainly will not be limited to:

• Keynote addresses
• Professional development
• Organization culture audits
• Conflict mediation
• Shifting your organizational culture

Where people of goodwill get together and transcend their differences for the common good, peaceful and just solutions can be found even for those problems which seem most intractable. –Nelson Mandela
