What Can You Do To Embrace Cultural Diversity?

Understand Your Own Culture

The number one thing that you can do is understand your own sociocultural context and how it can influence your interactions with people of different backgrounds, belief systems and values.

Your unique background can provide valuable insights into the potential needs of some members, but it might also hinder you in understanding the situations of other individuals.

Examine Your Interactions for Bais

Recognize that every person is unique, and even individuals from the same cultural group may have radically different world views. We all have personal biases that affect how we interact with individuals of certain groups. Examine your interactions for signs of implicit bias and find opportunities in which you can be more inclusive.

Apply to All Interactions

Communicate in a respectful manner in all of your interactions and refrain from making assumptions based on personal experience or cultural context.Carefully ask questions and actively listen to the responses.
