“The table is long, and there are plenty of seats” says Mayra Morales, MBA, Senior Director of the Office of Global Health & Societies at Texas Tech University Health Science Center in El Paso, Texas, as she refers to the welcoming and culturally responsive campus and El Paso community. “We open up seats for individuals to be inclusive. That’s how we learn. That’s how we provide better understanding for everyone.”
We celebrate the 12th Annual Cultural Competence Conference on August 4th.
This EDUCATIONAL EVENT is designed for all health care professionals and community organization staff. Students, staff, and faculty from all four schools, as well as physicians and residents from the clinics are welcome to attend. Members from the local general academic university and sister university in Lubbock are also invited.
The OBJECTIVE is to enhance interpersonal interactions within the health care system and ensure that services are delivered to the community in a culturally humane manner.
This EPISODE of the Inclusive Enterprise Podcast, Mayra is my guest. She shares the conference history, its impact over the years and progress of the Diversity and Inclusion Council led by Dr. Charmaine Martin who is Chair on the Council.
Dr. Martin is Associate Professor of Family Medicine and Interim Dean of Student Affairs with the Foster School of Medicine and has received the prestigious Profiles in Diversity Journal 2022 Black Leadership Award.
Mayra also highlights the conference theme of Allyship with her advice on cultural competence, inclusive leadership and what makes the university and El Paso Community so special. A unique place to live, learn, grow, and contribute to a vibrant community.
I am honored to be invited to be the Keynote Speaker as we build on cultural competence to explore inclusive leadership; redefining leadership through the lens of inclusion, innovation, creativity, and belonging.
I am excited and look forward to this important educational event supporting lifelong learning and quality patient care.
