Cultural Competence and Humility Explained

Webcast recorded on 13 July 2022

How can we be a more culturally competent and culturally humble leader/board member? Listen to our WOBChat with Leadership Coach, Simeon Boseley to understand what these important concepts mean and how you can develop them.

Cultural competence and humility are essential leadership attributes. Cultural competence is about having the right skills, knowledge, experience, and desire to work effectively with culturally diverse people. Although an admirable goal, being a culturally competent leader is just the start point. Consider, for example, the primary categories of difference like race, gender, social class, sexual orientation, and physical ability. Can you truly become competent and learn everything you need to know about one of these unique groups? Let alone how to effectively apply that knowledge to the uniqueness of individuals that straddle several categories? Well, the answer is obviously no. This is where the concept of cultural humility can add value.

Hear from Simeon Boseley to find out what cultural competence and humility means and how you could develop them. The discussion will deepen your awareness, knowledge and skills and develop mindfulness.
