Cultural humility is a framework for supporting lifelong learning and reflection with the goal of influencing and addressing structural inequalities.

Through interactive exercises, this workshop will introduce and support understanding of a process-oriented mindset in relation to other cultures.

  • Developed by a diverse group of health care providers during the 1990s, Cultural Humility is a discipline of seeking to understand in the spirit of inquiry and acceptance rather than from a sense of embarrassment or shame in relation to gaps in understanding.

  • Cultural Humility perspectives seek to address issues related to unconscious bias and other perceptual and habitual challenges
