Cultural Competency and Diversity Action Team

The Cultural Competency and Diversity Action Team seeks to increase access to services for under-served populations, particularly in high poverty areas; increase the capacity of staff to work effectively with diverse cultural and linguistic populations; revise or develop policies on cultural competency and disparities to ensure relevance and consistency; develop strategies to address issues of cultural competency regarding staff preparation and client engagement; and improve the accuracy of clinical assessments for diverse clients.

The Cultural Competency and Diversity Action Team meets the second Friday of each month, 9:30 - 11:00 am by videoconference at the Santa Barbara Children's Clinic Large Conference Room 119 and the Lompoc Adult Clinic Conference room on B street.
