Kind Curiosity for Cultural Inclusion
Wed, December 4 @ 9:15 am–11:15 am
All people have both conscious and unconscious biases. Theses biases impact all levels of interpersonal interaction. This presentation will help participants develop a basic understanding of how these biases impact our relationships and offer some skills and scripting that we can use to try to better understand the people in our world.
The key objectives are:
- Begin to identify key cultural terms and definitions.
- Start to recognize different cultural dimensions and how they impact my life and the lives of others.
- Develop an awareness of my own thoughts about the variety of differences of the people that share my world.
- Recognize my personal biases and build awareness using the Johari Window model.
- Practice “Kind Curiosity” questions to start to move beyond biases and better understand the thoughts, feelings and perspectives of others.
