    The first step in becoming a culturally competent organization is to develop a training program that will increase the skills and abilities of all employees in the area of cultural competence.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the first step in becoming a culturally competent organization is not necessarily to develop a training program. While training programs can be helpful in increasing employees' skills and abilities in cultural competence, there are other steps that can be taken before developing a training program. These steps may include conducting a cultural assessment, creating a diversity and inclusion policy, or establishing a diversity committee.

    C. Mandated and professional requirements to be culturally competent
    Explanation
    In organizations that lack cultural awareness, fear of the unknown, denial of differences, lack of knowledge, lack of recognition by leadership, and time and work constraints are common. However, mandated and professional requirements to be culturally competent would not be common in such organizations. This suggests that these organizations do not prioritize or enforce the need for employees to have cultural competence as a professional requirement.

    Explanation
    To become culturally competent, organizations need to have a clear understanding of their values and principles regarding the significance of culture in service delivery. By defining these values and principles, organizations can establish a foundation for developing policies and practices that respect and accommodate diverse cultural backgrounds.

Additionally, the organization's policies will recognize the importance of culture in shaping people's values and behaviors. Therefore, all of the above statements are true.

By recognizing and understanding cultural variations, service providers can better meet the needs of their clients and provide more effective support. Therefore, the statement that the foundation of cultural competency is valuing differences and being aware of them in human service settings is true.
