 Administration and Culturally Competent Advocacy

Social work administrators can use their roles as leaders to increase cultural competency within their organizations and, thus, help to create positive social change. As social work administrators critically assess situations in which social injustice or inequality has taken place, they may discover an organizational need for increased cultural competency. However, changing the culture of an organization is not an easy task since administrators must address personal and organizational assumptions about diversity and cultural competency simultaneously.

For this Discussion, consider how social work administrators might apply their leadership roles to increase cultural competency within their organizations.

Cultural Competency

What does it mean to be culturally competent? This question is the foundation for your examination of issues related to diversity and social justice this week. Culture influences all people and the lenses through which they view the world. Because the world comprises many cultures, these different perspectives represent opportunities for individuals to learn from one another, but they may become sources of conflict as well. Diversity encompasses more than racial and ethnic identities—issues such as class and gender cannot be ignored in discussions of cultural competency.

Learning Objectives

Students will:

  • Analyze client needs through different cultural lenses.
  • Apply multiple perspectives in treating clients.
  • Analyze strategies for increasing cultural competency within organizations.
  • Analyze strategies for developing cultural competency in administrative practice.

QUESTIONS

Post at least two strategies social workers may use to become advocates for social change through cultural competence. In addition, identify at least two challenges administrators may face in developing cultural competency within their organizations. Support your post with specific references to the resources. Be sure to provide full APA citations for your references.
