The current state of affairs relative to social justice issues (race, gender, sexual identity and expression, religion, and socio-economic status), with particular emphasis on racism, shows us that the need for diversity, equity and inclusion in our society is greater than ever.

The diversity and inclusion concept of cultural humility is a current instrument being employed by institutions and organizations that seek to achieve cultural transformation. Through conscious consideration, we can be proactive in preparing for and adhering to the inevitable challenges and changes in society.

This session will challenge participants to think about their own personal biases and collectively learn to truly embrace, appreciate, and live communally with those who are different through an exploration of cultural humility.

Specifically, participants will:

  • Define your own personal culture/identity: race/ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation/identity, religion, education, socio-economic status, etc.
  • Identify your personal biases and assumptions about people with different values than yours?
  • Challenge yourself in identifying your own values as the “norm”
  • Identify strategies for facilitating “difficult dialog” in the workplace

Topics covered in the session include:

Identity Circles activity focusing on self-identified social constructs, intersectionality, and personal sharing of stories of pride and pain. This requires small group participation.

Exploring cultural exclusion terminology (concept of “other,” racism, prejudice, stereotype, unconscious bias, and microaggression). Videos are also used to provide a visual medium for learning.

Deep dive into the concept of Cultural Humility (exploration of tenets, comparison to cultural competency, and practical employment of concept). Videos from the creators of the concept will be shown as well.
