Six Core Competencies Deeply Engrained
in Culturally Responsive Leaders

“Given the growing diversity of the U.S. population, it is imperative that education professionals engage in culturally competent practices.” –Authors Mary BethKlotz and Andrea Canter

Throughout this presentation Dr. Sonya Whitaker will introduce what she refers to as the Six Core Competencies Deeply Engrained in Culturally Responsive Leaders. Dr. Whitaker contends that when the competencies are fully developed and culturally responsive leadership practices are implemented with fidelity, administrators and board of education members are provided with the high leverage strategies needed to improve the academic achievement levels of all students.

Participants will also examine their own policies as well as explore culturally responsive board of education policies and practices being implemented across the United States.
