We expect all students to demonstrate proficiency in math . . . Why not in cultural competence? Dr. Steven Jones invites educators and parents to shift our conversations about diversity from ‘cultural sensitivity’ to cultural competencies — and explains how these skills are essential for all children’s developing abilities to think critically, to communicate, to collaborate, and to solve problems.
Further information and related resources (including slides from this presentation) are provided below the embedded video.
Dr. Steven Jones is a leading voice in the areas of diversity, inclusion, and cross-cultural competency in learning communities. He has influenced countless public and private educational institutions, corporations, and city/government agencies as the CEO of Jones & Associates Consulting, Inc. Dr. Jones is also the first person of African descent to be ordained as a Buddhist Monk. If you are familiar with the NAIS Principles of Good Practice for Equity and Justice, you have Dr. Jones largely to thank. He has, at once, once of the most commanding and assuring voices, and one of the most infectious laughs. -CT
