Cultural Sensitivity & Competency Training
If we are to make stronger connections across cultures and racial backgrounds, we must all take responsibility to build up our cultural competency. As systems, media, organizations, and so forth have perpetuated Euro-centric narratives, beliefs, lifestyles, and cultures for centuries, as our places of work strive to reflect and support the plurality of the global population we must elevate our understanding of our neighbours’ reality, thereby enabling this to be achieved. It’s incredible to see how quickly unconscious bias can be mitigated when we develop a more attuned understanding of one another. It’s also incredible to see how team dynamics are strengthened as a result of cultural competency training, and the productivity and growth that a company realizes as a result.
