What is MACC?
The Multiethnic Advocates for Cultural Competence (MACC) is a statewide organization committed to transforming systems through the implementation and sustainment of concepts related to cultural competence. We are a clearinghouse for training, resources, research, best practices, and collaboration. We define cultural competence as a continuous learning process that builds knowledge, awareness, skills and capacity to identify, understand and respect the unique beliefs, values, customs, languages, abilities and traditions of all Ohioans in order to develop policies to promote effective programs and services.
Inspired by our video narrative series, I Am MACC, showcasing individuals throughout Columbus who are involved in spreading cultural awareness and the impact of intersectionality on our daily lives. The I Am MACC meetup series is a pilot bimonthly meetup designed to gather individuals with a common interest for recognizing how our unique identities and experiences can shape how the world operates.
The I Am MACC meetup series will seek to address key concepts related to cultural identity such as class, age, geographic location, education, race, socioeconomic status and more.
Join us for an evening of empowerment through storytelling, shared learning and growth through understanding.
MACC Legislative Day and Reception will provide any opportunity for fellow advocates to participate in addressing cultural competence policy considerations with state legislatures.
The evening reception will invite representatives and community stakeholders to gather and network. MACC will also host its Annual Meeting during this time and share future outlooks for the organization.
