There is no such thing as a “how-to” manual on cultural competency. It’s an ongoing journey organizations choose to take because they know the end-result is a more inclusive, connected, and effective organization. This forthcoming book by the Alliance for Nonprofit Management collects the voices of many nonprofit leaders and capacity builders to help nonprofit organizations begin to understand the complexity within diverse communities.

Through a range of methods—literature review, personal interviews, peer dialogue, insights of contributing authors—readers get a mosaic of perspectives that surround cultural competency. Plus, the book presents the insights of authors who represent five major ethnic communities in the United States: Asian/Pacific Islander, American Indian, African American, White, and Latino.

Polarity Thinking Learning Community 

Beth Applegate will be co-facilitating a session with Barry Johnson at the Polarity Thinking Learning Community. Polarities are interdependent pairs and are a natural part of the energy systems in which we live and work. This energy is free and belongs to everyone and can be leveraged if you can see it. The  Johnson Applegate session will focus on how to leverage key polarities to interrupt white privilege in order to claim our humanity.
