Cultural Humility Series, Part VI: Why It Matters Now More Than Ever
Friday, August 21, 2020 @ 12-2:00pm ET (11CT/10MT/9PT)
The current sociocultural and political climates in the United States elucidate the importance of understanding our humanity while fostering deeper cross-cultural relationships. As the nation is currently facing two pandemics, one health related and the other racial, our ability to engage in thoughtful and meaningful discourse on cultural issues remains ever present. This presentation addresses the impact of racial capitalism, racial colorblindness, implicit bias, and colorism on our inability to create structural changes. The presenter will share insight about the importance of understanding one’s own cultural background and worldviews as a way to enhance our multicultural relationships, both personally and professionally.
- Participants will learn why cultural humility is essential in changing the nature by which we understand ourselves and others.
- Participants will learn how to identify at least two ways in which professionals can address their own implicit biases.
- Participants will examine racial colorblindness and its impact in developing respectful multicultural relationships.
