Recorded on September 26, 2023 from 12pm – 3pm ET

Cultural humility is a stance—a way of being in the world and in relationships that encourages, supports, and facilitates the transformational possibilities of others. It is a lifelong process of self-reflection and self-critique. A practitioner of cultural humility is committed to understanding and respecting different points of view, and to engaging with others humbly, authentically, and from a place of learning. 

This workshop led by Dr. Veronica Keiffer-Lewis (she/her) introduces participants to the core philosophy of cultural humility and how it relates to our work, the four core principles, as well as the founders and historical roots. The event was hosted in English with a live Spanish interpretation channel.
