Cultural Self-Awareness

“Culture hides much more than it reveals, and strangely enough what it hides, it hides most effectively from its own participants. Years of study have convinced me that the real job is not to understand foreign culture but to understand our own.”

Edward T. Hall (1959)

A pioneer in the intercultural world, Edward T. Hall acknowledged that individuals did not understand enough about their own culture to understand others. The Cultural Self-Awareness Workshop focuses on three learning objectives: Establishing or enhancing awareness of the importance of Cultural Competence; Surfacing assumptions of the dominant culture and increasing awareness of when these assumptions are unconsciously used as the standard or organizing framework; and exploring and help to recognize institutional privilege.

This interactive workshop can be tailored to your organization’s needs.
