Beyond Cultural & Linguistic Competence: Achieving Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Lloyd Bullard, Building Bridges Initiative (BBI)

Based on a BBI Leaders of Color white paper, this interactive, dynamic presentation briefly discusses the research regarding the inequities pertaining to recruiting, hiring, and promoting Leaders of Color (LoC), as well as to the recruitment of board members of color. The session offers numerous strategies to successfully address these inequities. Mr. Bullard challenges participants to create one-to-two short-term goals that their agency is willing to address within the next one to six months to increase their level of Cultural & Linguistic Competence (CLC)/Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI). \

Building Bridges is a national initiative that strives to advance partnerships among residential and community-based service providers, youth, and families to improve lives.
