Previously recognized as the Annual MACC Statewide Cultural Competence Conference, the 2019 Ohio Cultural Competence Conference (OCCC) will be hosted at the Ohio Union on the campus of The Ohio State University on November 1st. Over 300 national and state level community advocates, faith leaders, public officials, students, researchers, and health providers will convene during the conference to compare best practices in the reduction of health disparities, implementation of cultural competence, and fight against institutional racism.

 This one-day conference will host featured keynotes, a plenary panel and three breakout sessions – each breakout session will consist of multiple 60-minute workshops.  

MACC offers the opportunity for social workers and other licensed professionals to receive continuing education credits (CEUs) for attending our annual conference.

2019 OCCC Topics

Mirroring our tagline, the 2019 OCCC will seek to engage, educate and empower all attendees over the following topics:

  • Cultural Humility Across Substance Use Prevention, Treatment and Recovery

    • Stigma and bias related to substance use are pervasive within cultures and among providers. This creates significant barriers to treatment, namely within the African American and Latinx communities

  • Interfaith Engagement Across Systems

    • MACC seeks to bridge the gap between the public and private sectors and the religious and spiritual communities they serve. Religion and spirituality are some of the most significant protective factors impacting outcomes

  • Demographic Research and Data Collection to Inform Policies and Programs

    • The development of effective policies and programs based on accurate knowledge of the workforce and the consumer. In addition, demographics continue to rapidly diversify presenting unique challenges.

  • The Intersection of Cultural Competence and Artificial Intelligence

    • New technologies are susceptible to the bias that may exist within their architects. MACC advocates for the inclusion of concepts related to cultural competence within the research and development phases.

  • Comprehensive Support of Diversity and Inclusion Staff

    • Efforts to increase diversity frequently initiates organization change and must be supplemented with additional components of cultural competence to ensure effective relationship building. MACC seeks to aid diversity and inclusion staff in navigating potential challenges and provide best practices.
