Complexity and diversity in large cities requires Extension professionals to develop specific competencies. While the knowledge, skills, abilities, and other personal characteristics are similar to those reflected in all geographic settings, influences in the large cities intensify the degree to which personnel apply related competencies such as cultural competence, managing multiple resources, and communication to reach a larger and more diverse audience.
In this webinar, Julie Fox will share results of a competency study on the unique aspects of serving the Extension mission in urban communities. As a result of competency identification, Extension leaders can use the findings to improve Extension’s ability to attract, develop, retain, and structure competent talent. Julie will also provide an update from the National Urban Leaders Network (NULN) Professional Development action committee as they work to establish best practices for developing the capacity and competency of urban Extension educators, specialists, and administrators working with multi-stakeholder agendas.
