Cultural Humility for Organizations

July 15 & July 16 from (2 – 5 pm PT)

With Dr. Edelmira (Edy) Reynoso, Sasheen Raymond and Meridith Oram
Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (ODEI) at Humboldt State University

Many organizations over the years have focused on ensuring that their staff and boards are culturally competent. However competency implies finite learning - a certain level of sufficiency in knowledge and skills that allows one to be deemed 'culturally competent'. Given the many different identities, communities, cultures, ethnicities, faiths, races, and experiences that people have, it is impossible for someone to actually be 'culturally competent' to all people and communities.

An alternative approach is cultural humility, a lifelong learning practice that honors other people's and communities' expertise in their own experiences.

Join NorCAN for a virtual workshop in learning about the principles of cultural humility, and reflecting on your personal and organizational experiences. 

This workshop is offered in collaboration with the Equity Alliance of the North Coast.

Small Organizations per person rate (1-24 staff) $30 
Large Organization per person rate (25+ staff) $40
