Class Description

PREREQUISITE: Part 1 of Cultural Humility and Cross Cultural Community is a prerequiste to register for this training

Now that you have completed Cultural Humility and Cross-Cultural Communication: Bridging the Divide - Part 1, we invite you to participate in this follow up session. Part 2 will focus on methods for actively utilizing the process of cultural humility to create more inclusive and equitable practices and systems within organizations, coalitions and movements. These practices will help to redress power imbalances and promote institutional accountability around issues of equity and access and create cultures of welcome and inclusion. If you participated in the first workshop and are asking yourself the questions, “Now what?” this workshop will help you to apply the knowledge you acquired in the first session and guide action that will create important social change in your spheres of influence.

Objectives:

  • Continue to challenge assumptions and stereotypes, and examine the cultural lens through which you perceive and understand people and events.
  • Learn to communicate across cultural communication styles and increate inclusive conversations/dialogue.
  • Develop plans/goals to actively create inclusive cultures within organizations, coalitions and movements that welcome, respect, value and collaborate effectively with people from diverse cultures.

Donations are always welcome and appreciated!
