About the event

Culture is complex and dynamic. It is more than just race, ethnicity, gender, class, religion, dis/Ability, or orientation. Fostering cultural competence is about aligning behaviors, attitudes, and policies in order to work effectively in and with diverse groups.

Cultural competence acknowledges and incorporates:

  • Practicing self-awareness and self-reflection
  • Increasing inclusiveness, accessibility, and equity
  • Fostering a climate where discrimination and oppressive behaviors are not tolerated
  • Valuing cultural differences
  • Promoting the elimination of systemic biases and barriers
