Cultural Humility: Where the Personal and Political Intersect

Presentation Description:

The current sociocultural and political climates and discourse in the United States elucidates the importance of understanding our humanity while fostering deeper cross-cultural relationships. This presentation addresses why cultural humility matters in our work as service providers, the current literature on color-blind racial ideology, and implicit bias. The presentation provides insight into the importance of understanding where our humanity intersects with the political as a way to enhance our service as cultural workers, both personally and professionally.

Participants will be able to:

  1. Define cultural humility and its impact in cross-cultural relationships
  2. Discuss the importance of understanding the rationale and limitations of a color-blind racial ideology (CBRI).
  3. Demonstrate the challenges and benefits of understanding and discussing their own and others cultural identities.
