The New Jersey Statewide Network for Cultural Competence began in 2002 as an initiative
of the New Jersey Department of Health to improve culturally competent policies, procedures and practices through participation in a technical assistance project developed by the National Center for Cultural Competence at Georgetown University. Upon completion of
the project, participants decided to work together to develop a broad-based network to advance
culturally competent practices in New Jersey. Early milestones included the development of a listserv and resource directory in 2003, the launch of a website in 2005, and two statewide conferences in 2010 and 2012.
The agencies and organizations involved in the Network include more than 130 public/non-profit State, community and private sector agencies engaged in or promoting culturally & linguistically competent service delivery, education, policies and practices.

Webinar Title: Immigrant Integration: A Challenge for Our Time
Presenter: Nicholas V. Montalto, PhD, Diversity Dynamics, LLC
While immigration policy continues to spark partisan controversy, the question of how immigrants are integrated into the social, economic, and cultural life of the nation has received noticeably less attention. Yet, our response to this challenge will have important consequences for the quality of life in the United States and the continued success of the “Great American experiment” in human relations. In this webinar, we will discuss the meaning of immigrant integration, why it is deserving of careful attention by policymakers and practitioners, how the U.S. compares to other countries in its integration outcomes, and what policies and practices show promise of fostering immigrant inclusion and participation.
