Critical Cultural Competency – 2 Half-day Morning Sessions(Online classroom)

 Registration is closed for this event

** This session will meet online on Thursday, August 27th from 9 am - 12:30 pm  and on Friday, August 28th from 9 am - 12 pm. You must attend both sessions. 

The Critical Cultural Competency workshop is built on the premise that US society has a dominant set of norms, values and ways of life. This dominant culture establishes the rules and laws by which all people and their ways of life are measured, resulting in a society with unjust power dynamics based on socially constructed identities such as race, class, gender, sexuality, and ability. 

The workshop will examine the ways that US society values and advantages some groups while devaluing and disadvantaging other groups based on socially defined categories. The workshop will explore how people within institutions can begin to create new institutional culture by rooting their structure and organizational lifeways in a set of anti-oppressive, transformational values.  

This Critical Cultural Competency workshop is designed for participants who want to understand the ways that societal inequity is embedded in institutional life as well as in individuals through socialization processes that shape thoughts and behaviors. Participants will examine unconscious bias and learn about the value shift required to start creating more equitable provision of services, programs, and institutional culture. 

Participants will:  

  • Gain understanding of the cultural power dynamics between dominant and marginalized identity groups and the socialization processes that uphold them 
  • Explore the impact of these cultural dynamics on individuals  
  • Explore the dominant cultural values that operate in our institutions to maintain oppression and the transformational values that can help create a more equitable institutional culture 

Workshop Delivery: 

The Critical Cultural Competency Workshop will be delivered via the Zoom platform.  It will be interactive and include multiple modes of learning.
