The advent of assessment and accountability measures has led to a fresh look at leadership in the context of diverse schools. Earlier Corwin Press publications such as Cultural Proficiency and The Culturally Proficient School have offered ways to look at leadership through the lens of cultural proficiency, a concept basedon the premisethat personal and organizational leadership is an inside-out process that includes a sensitivity towards the cultural dignity of students. Culturally Proficient Leadership adds to those works by providing the reader with a clear, interactive road map for leadership as a personal journey. The book begins and ends with the premise that one cannot adequately lead change in schools or other organizations without knowing and understanding one's self as a leader. In this resource, the authors offer stories of personal experiences well as interactive "Getting Centered" activities that allow readers to better understand their personal assumptions and beliefs. The book also features chronologically ordered chapters that provide historical context to the development of racial and cultural identities.

Randall B. Lindsey is emeritus professor at California State University, Los Angeles and has a practice centered on educational consulting and issues related to equity and access. Prior to higher education faculty roles, he served as a junior and senior high school history teacher, a district office administrator for school desegregation, and executive director of a non-profit corporation. All of his experiences have been in working with diverse populations and his area of study is the behavior of white people in multicultural settings. It is his belief and experience that too often white people are observers of multicultural issues rather than personally involved with them. He works with colleagues to design and implement programs for and with schools, law enforcement agencies, and community-based organizations to provide access and achievement. He and his wife and frequent co-author, Delores, are enjoying this phase of life as grandparents, as educators, and in support of just causes that extend the promises of democracy throughout society in authentic ways.
