There have been many iterations of diversity and subsequent initiatives purposed to improve diversity through trainings that raise awareness and provoke meaningful discussions. These discussions are intended to enhance diversity in daily work practice. This belief lead to the concept of cultural competence, and assumed comprehensive trainings on such a complex topic leading many to believe that the work is complete. As a result, there has been a lost opportunity to challenge the origins of implicit bias, the application of human inclusion in treatment, and the impact on diagnosing, referrals to treatment, and practice. We will examine diversity and opportunities to move towards inclusivity.
