DDLS Fall 2020

The Essential Role of Cultural and Linguistic Competence in Advancing Equity


October 23, 2020 - Duration 2 hrs

 

Tawara D. Goode, MA

Assistant Professor and Director

University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities and National Center for Cultural Competence

Georgetown University
Washington, DC

We lag far behind other fields in efforts to achieve equity because we have yet to define it,
and more specifically, what equity means in the disability space. We also cannot truly address
equity without focusing on disparities, known outcomes of inequities, including those attributed
to race and racism. This session will offer a definition of equity adapted to the intellectual and
developmental disability (IDD) contexts, describe a framework for addressing disparities in IDD
supports and services, and delineate the role of cultural and linguistic competence in our collective
efforts to achieve equity in IDD.
