Participants will explore cultural humility’s genesis and the ways in which it has been used to produce inequity-reducing research, clinical practice, and policy. Participants will have the opportunity to directly and purposefully explore their positionality, personality, and engage in acts of reflexivity without judgment, using timely case studies and immersive role-playing exercises during the webinar time. At the end of the training, participants will be situated to better understand, redirect, and leverage their interpersonal traits in a way that will be conducive to successful engagement with culturally diverse individuals.  Special focus will be honored by discussing the impact of culture and equity on those with disabilities.


  • Explore personal traditions,  values and experiences to better understand its reflection upon real life
  • Gain understanding of cultural humility vs. cultural competencys
  • Explore the impact of inequity and how systems foster and perpetuate its continuality
  • Identify cultural experiences to learn how to use them as assets
  • Review ways culture and equity may look different for those with disabilities
