Cultural Competency Resources

The Mayor's Office is committed to providing technical assistance to District agencies on cultural competency through the use of information and education dissemination.

Agencies can learn about various issues in the Asian American and Pacific Islander community by connecting with local community groups and having community dialogues with them and your staff.  OAPIA strives to provide data and information about the community in general terms to increase awareness of issues affecting the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities.  Agencies can take advantage of these resources in the following ways:

1. Subscribing to the monthly language access newsletter by contacting Sinae Lee at [email protected]
2. Reviewing the cultural competency section in the Reach Out Too Kit.
3. OAPIA's report DC's Asian Americans - A Population Growing Out of Invisibility.
4. OAPIA's Asian-American Pacific Islander Community Training Module.
