When addressing the issues of cultural competency in student affairs, the notion of culture is often discussed using a piecemeal approach when examining cultural identity. This webinar will engage participants in learning a framework for defining cultural competency through the lens of intersectionality exploring students multiple cultural identities (i.e. ethnicity, age, socioeconomic status, ability, gender/gender identity, and sexual orientation, spirituality/religion) simultaneously. Participants will identify strategies to integrate the various competency models together to promote best practices with clients and students from underrepresented populations.

  • Define intersectionality and its relationship to current cultural competencies in the field of student affairs, higher education, and counseling
  • Examine the intersectionality of the multicultural competencies when working with students and campus stakeholders from diverse backgrounds
  • Explore the training needs for counselors and student affairs professionals working with the culturally diverse populations
  • Recognize strategies for addressing potential value conflicts and ethical issues that may exist in culturally competent practice
  • Develop tools to increase professional competency when working with underserved populations on campus
  • 2-year & 4-year institutions
  • Academic Affairs/Instruction
  • Student Services/Affairs
  • Student Life Directors
  • Advising & Counseling
  • Retention Specialist
  • First Year Experience Coordinators
  • Diversity Directors/Specialists
  • Any educator interested in diversity and cultural competency
"Examining cultural competency from a lens of intersectionality helps us see people as holding memberships to multiple cultural identities simultaneously. As human beings, we aren't female on Tuesday, African American on Friday, and gay on Saturday, we carry all of our identities with us wherever we go."
