Equity Roundtable 1: Seeking Cultural Competence in Hiring

Please join us on Monday, October 17 from 8:30 to 1:30 pm at College Prep (6100 Broadway) for a workshop to help educational leaders hire culturally competent people. Our facilitator for the conversation is Cris Clifford Cullinan, Ph.D. Cris is the Co-chair of the National Advisory Council for NCORE: National Conference on Race and Ethnicity in Higher Education and is the founder of ALiVE  (Actual Leadership in Vital Equity).
Cris will guide us through an interactive workshop and we will end with fellowship over lunch. To join this round table discussion please click HERE and/or if you have any questions please contact Jeremiah J. Jackson (

Hiring processes should include ways to evaluate candidates as to their actual knowledge, skills and abilities to work effectively, respectfully, and inclusively with all current and future members of the school community – colleagues, students, parents, alumni and community members — as well as to differentiate these candidates from others without these critical skills. This Institute is designed to provide participants with effective tools they can adapt for use at their own schools. Participants will work together to identify various dimensions of cultural competence and will focus on those which represent the most critical needs for positions in their particular schools. They will learn practical methods and strategies, including ways to design appropriate advertisements, improve paper screening procedures, and write effective interview and reference questions.
