Organizational cultural and linguistic competency assessment tool

The Organizational Cultural and Linguistic Competency Assessment Tool can be used to assess where organizations and individuals fall along the cultural competence spectrum, and to serve as a guide to identify training needs and areas to improve upon.

The AEA Public Statement on Cultural Competence in Evaluation highlights several core concepts, including the implications culture has for all phases of evaluation. This includes staffing of evaluation efforts and ensuring that members of the evaluation team collectively demonstrate cultural competence in the context for each evaluation.

The Organizational Cultural and Linguistic Competency Assessment Tool is a survey model to help organisations, evaluation practitioners and commissioners begin the process of internal cultural competence evaluation.
