Leadership Institute for Cultural Diversity and Cultural and Linguistic Competence


The Leadership Institute is a collaborative, multifaceted initiative with a goal to increase the number and capacity of leaders to advance and sustain cultural and linguistic competence (CLC) and respond to the growing cultural diversity among people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) in the United States, its territories, and tribal communities.

The Institute is funded over a five-year period through a Cooperative Agreement from the Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AIDD), Administration for Community Living, U.S Department of Health and Human Services. The Institute's activities include:

  • five annual Leadership Academies
  • a series of web-based learning and reflection forums for the I/DD network
  • long-term, tailored mentoring to selected organizations to assist them to achieve their cultural diversity and CLC goals.

The 2017 Leadership Academy is scheduled for June 19-22 in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
The application process will begin in December 2016.
