Description

Title: Cultural and Linguistic Competency: Serving the Needs of Our Communities

Presented by: Yvette Murry, MSW,LCSW

5 DVS Credits:  Diversity or Intervention Skills
Social Workers - this class has been approved for 5 Credits in Social & Cultural Competence Credits

As the 21st century has moved forward, the ethnic, cultural, and linguistic makeup of NJ has been changing steadily. Cultural and linguistic competence is a set of congruent behaviors, attitudes, and policies that come together in a system, agency, or among professionals that enables effective work in cross-cultural situations. This workshop will provide participants with techniques to enhance their ability to provide appropriate services to all populations, while recognizing their own cultural/linguistic background or life experience and that of their client.

Workshop Objectives:  At the end of this seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Define cultural and linguistic competency;
  • Analyze and interpret their individual cultural and linguistic competency;
  • Examine the impact of inadequate cultural and linguistic competency on the individual, organizational and systems level;
  • Identify and articulate turn-key strategies to enhance the cultural and linguistic effectiveness of service provision on the micro- and macro level.

About the Keynote

Advocacy is more important than ever to build power and protect our communities. It enables us to shape the public debate on important social issues and is one of the most powerful tools we have to create change. As part of the Alliance for Justice Bolder Advocacy team, I provide foundations and nonprofits the confidence, tools, and resources to effectively advocate to advance their missions. During this time of great political change, many nonprofits that have hesitated to step into the advocacy realm now feel compelled to speak out, and those already engaging in advocacy want to learn how they can engage in more sophisticated strategies and campaigns. The time is now for your organization to BE BOLD and to encourage your allies and coalitions to speak up and out on issues that matter to them and to you.

Keely Monroe serves as Counsel for the Bolder Advocacy Initiative at Alliance for Justice. She consults with and trains nonprofit organizations on the rules and strategies for legal and effective advocacy, including lobbying, election-related activity, and ballot measure advocacy. Before joining AFJ, Keely was the Director of Campus & Community Programs at the national office of IfWhenHow: Lawyering for Reproductive Justice in Oakland, CA, where she provided guidance to over one hundred IfWhenHow chapters across the country and supported their advocacy at the state and community level. As a passionate advocate for reproductive rights, health, and justice issues, Keely further serves these movements as a member of the National Board of Directors for Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS) and as an advisory board member for Women Engaged. Keely holds a B.A. from Fordham University and graduated from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law in 2011. She is licensed by the State Bar of California.

About the Musician

Macheis Wind is an award-winning musician, child advocate and author, and the founder and director of Guitar Tree, a non-profit organization. He has spent more than two decades dedicated to bringing the healing power of music to children and adults in venues where trauma and emotional pain are intense and ever present – what he calls the \“hidden worlds\”. Macheis has developed many creative approaches to enhancing healing and empowerment in these volatile and complex settings. Often, he will create songs out of client’s lives and stories that are beautiful, thought provoking and speak to the compassion in all of us. He has written about this work and about his own personal journey in his upcoming book, \“More Than This: The Music, Healing, and Triumph Over Violence.\”
