Kristin Hocker, organizational development specialist in Human Resources, will give a talk and presentation on cultural humility. 

Defined as a lifelong process of self-reflection and self-critique, cultural humility is a philosophy that empowers individuals to effectively engage in interpersonal relationships that are dynamically diverse and mutually respectful. Cultural humility provides a framework for individuals to increase their understanding of the significant funds of knowledge that exist within each person’s cultural background. By deepening their cultural humility, individuals are then able to recognize and re-address power imbalances that exist within their immediate social and organizational structures.

At the conclusion of this session, you will:

    -Define cultural humility and its core tenets.

    -Discuss the application of cultural humility to functioning in diverse workspaces.

    -Identify ways to apply cultural humility in one’s own practice.

To register for this workshop, contact Grace Fuller.

Diversity Seminar Series: (Religious) Gender Ideologies, Information Communication Technology http://www.rochester.edu/diversity/eventscalendar?event&id=1066810 http://www.rochester.edu/diversity/eventscalendar?event&id=1066810 Lower Adolph Auditorium 1-7619 Medical Center
Tuesday, June 7, 2016
12:00 PM

Speaker: Ineke Buskens, principle research fellow at Gender Tech Labs. The talk, which is cosponsored by the Office for Inclusion and Culture Development, Clinical and Translational Science Institute, Institute for Data Science, and the Susan B. Anthony Center, will explore: (Religious) Gender Ideologies and Information Communication Technology Religious institutions shape cultural norms, social rules and behaviour and impact the rigidity of the gender roles and rules that are used to justify gender discrimination. The reflexive relationship between culture and religion often gives cultural gender ideologies the status of being divinely ordained and religious gender ideologies the status of cultural guardian. For this same reason, the opportunities for dialogue between religious gender ideologies and the secular notions of gender equality and diversity are limited in most societies: gender discriminatory practices that are justified through religious scriptures and/or advocated by religious office bearers are often not legally addressed and remain frequently out of bounds for academic scrutiny. It is against this background that the possibilities for dialogue, communication, education, advocacy and moblisation that Information Communication Technology has to offer have become so important for women and LGBTIQ persons in their striving for personal and social emancipation. Ineke is a very engaging and provocative speaker with deep experience in the field, focusing on issues relating to gender and technology, largely in resource-challenged areas. Her work is reflected in her recent book Women and ICT in Africa and the Middle East: Changing Selves, Changing Societies, one of the first to address critical areas of gender and computing in cultural context.

All faculty, residents, fellows, staff, students and members of the community are welcome to attend. Sponsor: URMC Office for Inclusion and Culture Development. To register for this workshop, please contact Grace Fuller at grace_fuller@urmc.rochester.edu.
