What is cultural competence and why is it important?

Hear a straightforward explanation of what cultural competence is and why it’s important for your organization from Dr. Tamu Nolfo, the Project Manager of the Community Alliance for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS). Your organization’s responsibility to be in compliance with the 14 National CLAS Standards will also be discussed. If you are a California-based service provider, you will be encouraged to take advantage of consultation and training from ONTRACK Program Resources at no cost to your organization — paid for through a contract with the California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs.
