Strong Center for Developmental Disabilities, UCEDD/LEND


This panel discusses themes related to cultural and linguistic competence in organizational settings. Existing disparities and gaps in engagement will be reviewed, along with barriers to full engagement of those with disabilities and other marginalized identities. Ideas, resources, and specific examples will be provided about existing efforts to promote CLC in various settings (e.g., service providers, state agencies, academic centers). Experiences from self and family advocates will also be shared.
