Description: Cultural Humility is a framework created in response to the limitations of Cultural Competency, or the idea that you can become competent in someone else’s culture.
Cultural Humility promotes 3 core principles: 1) Lifelong Learning and Critical Self-Reflection; 2) Recognize and Challenge Power Imbalances; and 3) Institutional Accountability. Through the process of learning about Cultural Humility we will discuss the parallels with this framework and harm reduction. We will also address the importance of understanding intersectionality and the role intersecting oppression plays in our clients lives, and how language and microaggressions can harm provider/client relationships.

In the second portion of the workshop, we will use the Cultural Humility concepts we have just learned to guide us through a discussion and training on gender and identity.

In this portion we will go over the difference between sex and gender, and the difference between gender identity, gender expression, and sexuality. We will address pronouns, non-binary identity, intersex identity, transition, violence against trans communities, trauma, and the myriad of barriers experienced by trans people in education, employment, housing, etc. Finally, we will discuss ways to be allies to trans individuals and communities, and strategies for interrupting transphobia.

Fee: Free to attend
