Multicultural Action Center Highlights of 2011
NAMI has been busy implementing its organizational Standards of Excellence, which will help us become a stronger at all levels. As part of this effort, the Multicultural Action Center hosted the "NAMI Better Together: Multicultural Champions Conference" in early April in Arlington, Va. specifically to address standards on diversity, inclusion and nondiscrimination. The participating delegations representing five states (California, Ohio, Maryland, Indiana and Tennessee) and each developed detailed plans of action to become more diverse and inclusive. Plans included efforts focused on cultural competence assessment, advisory group development and utilization, cultural competence trainings and targeted community outreach.
