Cultural Perspectives and Bias

Cultural work starts with awareness of our own social location and biases


Efforts to learn about working in diverse settings often focus on learning about ‘other’ cultures. However, people who are aware of their own influences, biases, and perspectives can more effectively bridge cultural differences. This effectiveness begins with the work of becoming mindful of where we place ourselves in the world. This class uncovers how our cultural identities and experiences shape the way we make meaning of the world and relate to others through examination of cultural humility, social locations, biases, and strategies to overcome them.

Learning Objectives

  • Review the nature of a perspective

  • Define culture and cultural humility

  • Review social location and privilege/marginalization

  • Identify a growth mindset in cultural work

  • Recognize biases and strategies to overcome them
