Equity and Inclusion Leaders Network

Cultural Competency: Beyond the Business Case

Ecotrust Conference Center, 2nd Floor 721 NW 9th Avenue
Portland

About this event

James Mason, PhD, Executive Director of Culturally Competent Caregiving
Providence Health & Services, Oregon Region

Continental Breakfast & Networking at 8:00
Presentation at 8:30

This session explores leadership as it concerns culturally competent service delivery and workforce diversity and inclusion. Join us to learn about:

  • Ways culture and cultural context can shape how people define problems, seek help, perceive credible providers and relevant services, and evaluate their satisfaction with services provided
  • Various rationale for cultural competence and workforce diversity, beyond the business case
  • Insights into models of cultural and linguistic competence
  • Approaches for cultural competence self-assessment and ongoing staff development
  • Strategies for viewing cultural and linguistic competence as a process as opposed to an event

The session will be a blend of lecture and small and large group activities. Together, we will establish a safe and collegial environment that will ultimately help participants enhance their cultural and linguistic competence in population based programs.

About the Presenter

Dr. James Mason is the Executive Director of Culturally Competent Caregiving for the Providence Health and Services, Oregon Region and is the former Director of Multicultural Health for the State of Oregon. He has worked in higher education as an administrator, researcher, and educator since 1977. Dr. Mason has spoken at colleges, universities, and health and human service bureaucracies in the United States, Latin America, and Canada applying concepts of workforce diversity and culturally competent service delivery to a variety of service disciplines, including: education, higher education, public health, mental health, child welfare, maternal and child health, and alcohol and drug treatment.

About the Network

Most nonprofit leaders want to create inclusive work environments, address social and economic disparities, and engage diverse communities in their programing, yet the path to achieve greater equity is not always clear, and the work can be isolating. Equity and Inclusion Leaders Network brings nonprofit leaders together to share best practices, connect among peers, and engage in deeper learning with thought leaders and practitioners in the field of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
