Cultural Humility: Moving Beyond Cultural Competence to Advance Equity & Social Justice
Speaker: Amanda Florence Goodenough, Team Lead for Social Responsibility Speaks, LLC
Cultural competence has long been known as the cornerstone for diversity awareness and cross-cultural communication. But its flaws and limitations point to a paradigm shift toward cultural humility, a framework for advancing equity and social justice by intentionally living at the crossroads of who we are, how others see us, and where power positions us within a system. On a small scale, cultural humility can enhance communication, foster trust, deepen connections, and improve outcomes when interacting across difference. In the bigger picture, it's a process that can radically transform workplaces and organizations. In this introspective workshop, participants will learn how to engage in critical self-work, identify systemic inequities, gain a deeper understanding of individual and group membership, and explore ideas for applying cultural humility principles into personal and professional spheres of influence.
