Cultural Competence: Diversity in Action
Diversity training can be very beneficial and is essential to any organization’s success. However, training without proper execution is futile. Cultural competence not only considers differences in the ethnicity, gender, religion, physical ability, social status, age, educational background, etc. of each individual, but also focuses on the actual application of lessons learned and skills obtained through academia, training, “hands-on” experiences, community outreach, employee resource groups, and daily interaction with patients and personnel.
