What is cultural competency?

At King’s we want to work together as a community to enhance the cultural competency of all our students and staff. We define cultural competency as the ability to view the world through the lens of other people – in all their diversity. Watch the video and click on the tabs below to find out more about what’s going on and how you can get involved.


King's students - sign up for the Cultural Competency Kickstarter

What does it mean to view the world through the lens of other people? What’s the value in communicating across cultures, communities, identities and disciplines? Find out in the Cultural Competency Kickstarter, an online experience for King’s students that you can complete at your own pace on KEATS.

The Cultural Competency Kickstarter will empower you to critically reflect on understanding your own identity, how you relate to others, and how you can make a positive difference at King’s and in the wider world.

Enrol in the Cultural Competency Kickstarter on KEATS (King's log in required).
