Cultural Agility is the ability to be one's authentic cultural self while engaging others and honoring their authentic cultural selves. Research shows that every interaction is a cultural interaction based upon lived experiences, knowledge, skills, and disposition so every individual has a unique and authentic cultural self. Learn how to embrace your cultural self to authentically engage with others.

Q. Will I be embarrassed or put on the spot?
A. No, these sessions are designed for optimal learning and the facilitator creates and maintains a supportive learning environment.
Q. I do not have a "culture", is it appropriate for me to attend?
A. Everyone has a culture, and identifying and embracing one's culture is the first step to learning how to be engaged with others. All are welcome!
Q. I have attended diversity training in the past, how is this different?
A. Cultural Agility focuses on the only variable any of us master: ourselves. Most approaches to cultural engagement are based upon profiling other people by gender, race, sexuality, and other identities. Cultural Agility maintains that each person has their authentic culture and once embraced, allows them to connect with others in a profound and aware manner.
Q. What will we do in the courses?
A. The learning environment is a combination of small and large group discussion, interactive activities, and individual processing. The discussions are facilitated and participants are encouraged but not badgered to share.
Q. What are the intended outcomes?
A. The first four-week introductory Cultural Agility Skill Building Course is designed to: (a) Invoke understanding of one's own multiple cultural identities and cultural selves (b) Evoke awareness of individual and societal biases that impact interactions and engagement (c) Provoke Cultural Agility by moving oneself along the cultural encapsulation to cultural engagement continuum.
Q. Who should attend?
A. Anyone working or volunteering with youth and families, and anyone who wants to seek personal growth.
