Abstract

The value of cultural competence for individuals and organizations is increasingly being acknowledged and accepted across industry and is especially a key area of focus in the human services sector. In this paper, I argue that the cultural competence literature and models do not take sufficient heed of the issues of racist ideology and actions and as such fail to deal with their impacts on people of culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. The paper further looks at how anti-racist strategy could be incorporated into cultural competence models, using one such model as an example.
