There have been debates about the relevance of cultural competence in the grand scheme of evidence-based social work practice. Some argue that cultural humility is better construct and concept to adopt and promote in our efforts to honor the spirit of diversity awareness and inclusion. This webinar addresses the concerns and potential risk of abandoning cultural competence as a standard of practice and as an achievable outcome for social work practitioners.

Learning Objectives:
  • Provide an actionable and measurable definition of cultural competence
  • Frame the discussion of the importance of cultural competence as social justice too.
  • Identify effective tools for self-reflection and understanding about diversity, inclusion and the challenges for social work professions
