Cultural Humility, Not Just Cultural Competence
What happens when we re-frame the concept of cultural competence and instead find an approach that incorporates constant learning, curiosity and appreciation for differences, and the desire to question our own beliefs and biases? In this interactive presentation, we will explore what cultural humility means, how to practice it, the impacts of building (and not building) cultural humility as teachers and administrators, and how this approach can help us better communicate across cultural barriers. We will investigate these concepts using specific tools and explore common cultural differences and biases. For anyone interested in advancing their journey around equity, this topic is foundational.
