Feasibility Assessment: Partners in Policymaking in Spanish and Chinese
As a one-year project conducted in 2018, the Yang-Tan Institute will conduct a comprehensive feasibility study on creating a culturally competent and linguistically accessible Partners in Policymaking® (PIP) course for Spanish and Chinese speakers in New York State.
The study will allow for the creation of a plan to implement the PIP course in the Spanish and Chinese languages which is uniquely tailored to the needs, strengths, cultural perspectives and experiences of Spanish and Chinese speaking communities.
- Conduct a self-assessment on the cultural and linguistic competence (CLC) of the Partners in Policymaking® (PIP) course to create a baseline for measuring progress and systems change in increasing PIP’s CLC.
- Identify key stakeholders and seek their input on the feasibility for developing and piloting a PIP training for Spanish and Chinese speakers
- Strengthen PIP’s internal capacity to deliver Spanish and Chinese versions of the course in a culturally and linguistically competent (CLC) way.
- Developing a Plan of Action for implementing PIP in the Spanish and Chinese languages.
