This class is limited to 20 participants. Pre-requisite: Part 1 of the series.

Class Description: Now that you have completed Cultural Humility and Cross‐ Cultural Communication: Bridging the Divide – Part 1, we invite you to participate in this follow‐up session. Part 2 will focus on methods for actively utilizing the process of cultural humility to create more inclusive and equitable practices and systems within organizations, coalitions, and movements. These practices will help to redress power imbalances and promote institutional accountability around issues of equity and access to create cultures of welcome and inclusion. If you participated in the first workshop and are asking yourself the question, “Now what?”, this workshop will help you to apply the knowledge you acquired in the first session and guide action that will create important social change in your spheres of influence.

- Learn to communicate across cultural communication styles and create inclusive conversations/dialogue;
- Develop plans/goals to actively create inclusive cultures within organizations, coalitions and movements that welcome, respect, value, and collaborate eﬀectively with people from diverse cultures.
