Building on our Cultural Proficiency work on understanding identities in Part 1, in Part 2 we will dig deeper to understand how anit-racism is core to cultural proficiency. We will work together to design our own culturally-proficient practices based upon issues the group identifies to tackle in creating culturally-proficient OST programs, whether in person or virtual.

  • Reflections on the definition of Cultural Proficiency  
  • Models for continuous learning including a Cultural Continuum,10 C’s of Awareness and Change, Affinity Identity Groups, Peer-Peer Action Groups
