Cultural Humility is a philosophy that empowers individuals to effectively engage in interpersonal relationships that are dynamically diverse and mutually respectful. Unlike Cultural Competence, cultural humility is a life-long and ongoing self-reflection and self-critique. As a result, individuals expand their capacity for learning, listening, and understanding, regardless of their experiences with cultures other than their own. In addition, incorporating cultural humility as part of one’s lifestyle empowers the individual to recognize and redress power imbalances within their immediatesocial and organizational structures.
