Learn three basic models of multicultural diversity focusing on cultural competence, efficacy and, humility on a seven step continuum of 1) cultural destructiveness (e.g. attitudes, policies and practices that are undermining of a cultural group); 2) cultural incapacity (e.g. lack of ability to respond to culturally and linguistically diverse groups); 3) cultural blindness (e.g. treating all people as the same without resources for acquiring knowledge about diverse cultures); 4) cultural pre-competence (e.g. commitment to supporting civil and human rights however without a plan for achieving organizational or individual multi-cultural diversity training); 5) cultural competency (e.g. dedicated resources for ongoing training and support of multi-cultural diversity); 6) cross-cultural efficacy and proficiency (e.g. active pursuit of social justice and advocacy for disadvantaged diverse multi-cultural experiences); and, 7) cultural humility (e.g. engaging in regular self-evaluation about power-imbalances between service providers and receivers).
