Limited Capacity seats available

This presentation will share information about the California chapter of TASH's initial steps towards creating a more diverse and culturally competent CalTASH. The presenter will share information about the creation of a Committee for Cultural Competence and its goals and strategies as well as the challenges faced thus far. The remainder of the time will serve as a discussion session for generating new ideas and supporting those from other chapters who have similar goals. Participants will learn about the opportunity to participate in the Georgetown Leadership Institute for cultural competence and how it can better prepare them to create change within an organization. They will also learn about the specific steps one chapter has taken to become more diverse and culturally competent. They will understand some of the barriers to this work and will participate in the generation of solutions and new ideas.
