5 Institutions of Higher Learning and the Promise of Diversity: An Ethics Dialogue for Public Affairs Education and Diversity/Cultural Competency Training
Institutions of Higher Learning and the Promise of Diversity: An Ethics Dialogue for Public Affairs Education and Diversity/Cultural Competency Training
Any consideration of the prospects of a counter–racist agenda for public administration in the United States must consider diversity and cultural competency education, in both the performative and ethical dimensions of that enterprise. This chapter reflects broad consideration of these themes, ranging from the logic and practical limits of diversity and cultural competency (or “sensitivity”) education and training to the corresponding requirements of dialogue and ethics. The analyses outlined here are broad, and will—it is hoped—help advance a pedagogical agenda capable of impacting the very significant vestiges of systematic racism found among public sector organizations in the United States.
