2020 Training Series: Building Cultural Competence & Humility

Public health professionals play a critical role in empowering community, and it is essential to create safe
and inclusive environments for the diverse clients with whom we work. By engaging in the practice of
cultural humility, which incorporates openness, self-awareness and self-reflection in interactions with diverse
individuals, public health professionals can increase their self-awareness, examine personal biases and
enhance their communication skills, strengthening their ability to provide culturally appropriate services.
