Learn best practices for promoting cultural proficiency in your school to establish Communities of Inclusion, creating educational equity for all students.

With ever-increasing diversity in schools and communities around the country, the need to create educational access and opportunity for every student has never been greater. Promoting cultural proficiency is an effective approach that provides the insights and tools to effectively create communities of inclusion in our schools and to boost the achievement of all students.

Please join CAL for this two-day informative and interactive institute designed to give educators and administrators tools that will guide the work of cultural proficiency at the individual and school levels by outlining concrete steps for creating communities of inclusion.

Broadly speaking, cultural proficiency allows individuals and organizations to interact effectively with people who differ from them, particularly those from non-dominant cultural contexts. It is a developmental approach for addressing the issues that emerge in diverse environments. Both individuals and organizations are at various levels of awareness, knowledge and skills along a cultural proficiency continuum.

The institute features CAL's Communities of Inclusion Approach, developed by our subject matter experts based on decades of research and practice working with educators of language learners in U.S. schools and with immigrant and refugee populations from around the globe.

Participants will use CAL's Communities of Inclusion Toolkit to explore stages along the continuum of cultural proficiency that represent ways of perceiving and responding to differences, recognizing other perspectives including the presence of varied types of privilege, balancing values, and creating a culture of mutual respect.
