Input Needed for Cultural Competency Survey
March 2, 2010

The Pennsylvania Developmental Disability Council (PADDC) has contracted with Diversity Dynamics to examine cultural competency of state disability service systems. Diversity Dynamics will use its findings to address the needs of underserved communities that are ethnically and linguistically diverse. They will present PADDC with a report and recommendation for systemic improvement.

Diversity Dynamics, with input from PADDC and the project advisory board, developed an online survey for providers to assess current systemic practices of cultural competency and perceived challenges. Information gleaned from the survey will be used to develop alternative strategies that will help disability services providers to serve diverse minority, immigrant, and refugee communities. Diversity Dynamics asked PCPA to assist by disseminating information so that interested provider members may complete the survey.

Participation in the survey is confidential. Only aggregate information will be reported. The survey should take 15 – 20 minutes to complete. Access the survey at www.surveymonkey.com/s/7Q2LJSXPlease complete the survey by March 12. Address questions to Diversity Dynamics at mail@usdiversitydynamics.com. Thank you to those who participate
