Hallmarks of Earlier Phases  People feel pressure to fit in  People fear speaking up  “Who you know” is more important than “what you know” (relationship-based culture)  You only trust those closest to you (cliques)  Denial of differences is considered a virtue (“we don’t see differences here”)  It’s hard for outsiders to learn the rules (sink or swim to prove yourself) Rosetta Eun Ryong Lee (http://tiny.cc/rosettalee)
  • 18. Hallmarks of Later Phases  People can bring their full selves to school  The school encourages and welcomes people to contribute different opinions and points of view  There is a performance driven culture  People form dynamic and diverse groups (trust)  Differences are seen as additive and productive  Success is explicitly defined, and the school supports people in achieving it  The school has an interactive culture  People have the competencies to adapt to different cultural contexts.

  • 19. The 5Ps of Institutional Cultural Competency • Policy – Enumeration of the school’s cultural competency commitment through mission, strategic plan, handbooks, websites, etc. • Programming – Cultural competency training and programming for all constituencies (board, admin, faculty, staff, students, families, etc.). Diversity and inclusivity curriculum. • Practice – Consistent and meaningful revisit of policy and programs. Climate assessments, proactive changes, and meaningful responses to incidents. • People – Critical mass of people who are supportive AND active on all levels. • Pecuniary – Funding, people, and time allocated in the strategic plan and daily life for supporting cultural competency efforts.
