Cultural Competence
Definition...

Cultural Competence is a journey; an evolving,
dynamic process that takes time. Through formal
training and life experiences, participants move
along a CONTINUUM journeying towards Cultural
Proficiency.

What is Cultural Competence?

"Cultural Competence is a set of congruent behaviors,
attitudes and policies that come together in a system,
agency or among professionals that enable effective interactions in a cross-cultural framework."


– Dr. Terry Cross, Ph.D

"To be culturally competent doesn't mean you are an authority in the values and beliefs of every culture. What it means is that the individual or organization have an ability to interact effectively with people of different cultures. Cultural competence comprises four components: Awareness, Attitude, Knowledge and Skills."
