Cultural Humility: Reflecting on Diversity, Equity, and Social Justice In-Person

We move between several different cultures often without even thinking about it.  Cultural Humility (CH) is distinct from cultural competency. CH is an ongoing process that focuses on three things: self-reflection on one’s cultural, race, ethnic background and expectations, commitment to redressing power imbalance, and to develop mutually beneficial building relationships.  Building on cultural competencies, CH is a lifelong activity and practice in action in education, healthcare and in the library service area. 

The purpose of this program is to understand the intricacies of privilege and to explore the ways we enjoy privilege based on membership in social identity groups.  Interactive and engaging activities in the form of  small group breakout sessions will include:

1.  Discussing identity, power and privilege activities using demographic attributes. 

2.  My culture and identity profile to create an identity pie – Self identity

3.  Identifying the relationship between your own culture, power, and privilege

We will also explore power dynamics, micro-aggressions, social justice during the webinar.

Intended Audience: This workshop is appropriate for library staff at any level or position.
