Wednesday Lunch Talk - Cultural Humility

Wednesday, October 5, 2016
Noon - 12:50 pm
Genrich-Rusling Room, 215 LeChase

Defined as a lifelong process of self-reflection and self-critique, cultural humility is a philosophy that empowers individuals to effectively engage in interpersonal relationships that are dynamically diverse and mutually respectful. Unlike cultural competence, cultural humility is an ongoing process in which individuals expand their capacity for learning, listening and understanding, regardless of the length of time they have spent relating to cultures other than their own. By deepening their cultural humility, individuals are then able to recognize and re-address power imbalances that exist within their immediate social and organizational structures.

Presented by Kristin Hocker, Ed.D. '15W and Organizational Development Specialist at the University of Rochester.

A light lunch from Saha Med Grill will be served. Food will be available at 11:45 am. Program starts promptly at noon.
