Twenty Twenty (2020) was the start of a new decade and we decided to retire the title Cultural Competence Summit and introduce a more inclusive summit title to now be called—California Health Equity Summit. While the new title is looking through the lens of Health Equity, the focus is still on behavioral health. The 2021 Summit will offer an opportunity to engage and deliver a range of cultural healing practices through innovative workshops and presentations to promote learning and to advance cultural humility, social justice, and equity throughout organizations and systems to effectively meet the diverse needs of consumers, individuals, families, and communities.
At the start of the first two quarters of 2020, our lives were turned upside down due to a series of events like the coronavirus, widespread racial injustices and wildfires. As a result, we are making the necessary adjustments to this year’s Summit by expanding the scope to include a space to respond to those horrendous events. Not only will we move to a virtual platform, but we are asking presenters to explore the behavioral health implications of those additional events and introduce indigenous/traditional healing practices to aid in the response and that allows for healing.
