The Cultural Humility Model creates a safe and positive place for us to learn from one another in group dialogue on issues surrounding race and inequality. The model replaces the insufficient notion of “cultural competence” with a cyclical approach that embraces critical self-reflection as a lifelong learning process to create a broader, more inclusive view of the world. 


Goal: Train participants to understand and apply the concepts, principles, and practices of Cultural Humility. This training provides professional career development for employees to build trustful relationships with colleagues and the people they serve.


• Cultural Humility: origin, principles, and practices

• Focus on dialogue among the participants on the application of the Cultural Humility principles in their work, building on preparatory exercises, reading materials, historical contexts, and current political landscape.

• Common language: identity, culture, race, isms, power and privilege, microaggression, intersectionality, color, gender, age, ethnicity, religion, nationality.

• Working definitions to explore the everyday meaning and use of these terms:


1) Examples from your work, and the work of others 2) Exercises to practice being in dialogue with each other and with clients when the elements of identity, power and privilege arrive in the work environment.

• Summarize what is useful for your work

• Group dialogue and evaluation


Overall Learning Objectives:

1. Participants can state the potential influence of power, privilege, the-isms, and their own history and relationship with clients and colleagues.

2. Participants can identify personal beliefs and values and how these factors influence their own behaviors when working with clients and colleagues.

3. Participants can use tools to practice the Cultural Humility principle of "client as the expert" when serving individuals and communities.

4. Participants practice respectful and curious inquiry about individual and community points of view, values, and life experiences, holding the stance of "listen as if the speaker is wise".

5. Participants practice strategies to redress power dynamics from negatively influencing or obstructing the content of service delivery.

6. Participants integrate strategies into organizational structures, policies, and activities.
