Embracing each other's differences


Why are these things important?

Cultural Competence is important because it is a significant part of eliminating barriers to accessing services.

Cultural competence as a framework creates systems, agencies and groups of professionals who are receptive to the diverse needs of their clients.


Agencies that offer non-judgemental services and are responsive to the beliefs, practices and cultural and linguistic needs of their clients can bring about positive relationships with their clients and the community.
