    Cultural Competence and Humility in Healthcare Training

    Cultural competence is the ability to understand and interact effectively with people from different cultures, backgrounds and experiences. Recognizing one’s own cultural beliefs, values and biases is also part of developing cultural competence.

    As organizations become more diverse, cultural competence is taking on new relevance. And in some states cultural competence training is required for licensed healthcare professionals. Organizations that foster cultural competence can benefit from better teamwork and collaboration, more effective problem solving, higher employee engagement and customer satisfaction, among other positive outcomes. And culturally-aware individuals are more likely to recognize and address biases (conscious and unconscious) and microaggressions — barriers to diversity and inclusion that can lead to discrimination.

    As part of an organization’s efforts to create a more inclusive and welcoming workplace, cultural competence training helps move the needle. Everyone can benefit from greater awareness and empathy for the experiences and cultures of coworkers, customers and others they engage with, inside and outside of the workplace.
