They did it. Congratulations are in order for more than 20 of your RIT colleagues who recently completed the Cultural Humility Certificate program, offered by the Division of Diversity and Inclusion.
What is cultural humility? Taj Smith, director of Diversity Education, facilitates the workshops. He says, “It is a humble self-examination and accountability process that helps people and institutions think critically about their values, implicit biases and quality of intercultural interactions.”
The program requires a real commitment. Participants take part in a total of six workshops, which can take a year to complete.
