Program Type

For any individual within the educational or health care community today, understanding the dimensions of culture within the framework of cultural humility, sustainability, and equity,  is a critical skill for providing high quality education and care for all communities.

In this workshop, you’ll receive a general overview and rationale for the importance of promoting provision of services embedded within diversity, inclusion, & equity perspective. You will learn the guiding principles of cultural humility, sustainability and equity and the specific knowledge and skills critical for serving all communities within education and health care. You will also be able to analyze and develop plans for changing inequitable outcomes from a deeper understanding of systemic inequities, professional standards, and epistemological biases related specifically to race, ethnicity, gender, class and ability—and how these structures can be intersectional within individuals or groups. You’ll learn the skills you need to become a culturally responsive leader, heath care professional, educator or advocate.

Can be taken individually or as part of the Diversity Certificate Program.
