Cultural Humility, defined as life long process of self- reflection and self- critique – is a philosophy that empowers individuals to effectively engage in interpersonal relationships that are dynamically diverse and mutually respectful. Unlike Cultural Competence, cultural humility is an ongoing process in which individuals expand their capacity for learning, listening and understanding, regardless of the length of time they have spent relating to cultures other than their own. By deepening their cultural humility, individuals are then able to recognize and redress power-imbalances that exist within their immediate social and organizational structures.
Participants will learn the importance of and engaging in:
- Commitment to lifelong learning and critical self-reflection
- Realizing our own power, privilege, and prejudices
- Practicing humble inquiry and deep listening
- Redressing imbalances for respectful partnerships
- Transforming institutions by promoting accountability
