Developing Cultural Humility Workshop
Feb 4 @ 9:30 am – 12:00 pm

What does it mean to develop cultural humility?  We’ll explore how an organization can become inclusive and understanding of a variety of cultures, races, abilities, and differences, and identify changes that can be made by organizations and by individuals to transform the climate.

Participants in our Racial Equity Workshops develop a common vocabulary, so they can begin to use a “racial equity lens” as they analyze institutional racism.  Led by trained facilitators, the group develops skills necessary to address racism at personal, interpersonal and systemic levels.
