Staff development



Kickstarter for Staff

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?

Following feedback from the Cultural Competency Student Kickstarter, we have launched a Cultural Competency Kickstarter aimed specifically at King’s Staff. The Staff Kickstarter takes less time (roughly 1 hour) to complete and contains information specific to King’s Staff.

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.

Once you complete the Kickstarter, you will have the option to join the Staff Cultural Competency Champions Network via the feedback form. By joining, you will receive a special Cultural Competency email signature banner as well as invitations to events and access to resources and support that will help you champion Cultural Competency at King's. 

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


Join colleagues from across the university for interactive workshops, and help develop a Cultural Competency CPD module to support student-facing staff across the university to better communicate across difference.

In these workshops, you will have the chance to learn more about cultural competency, reflect on your own experiences and explore connected issues. You will also have the opportunity to gain leadership experience by working with colleagues from across the university, making connections beyond your own area and sharing what you learn.

The workshops cover different themes and run through May:

  • Power and hierarchy: Monday 15 May, 14.00 - 15.00 (Guy's)
  • Language: Wednesday 17 May, 11.00 - 12.00 (Bush House)
  • Creating an inclusive environment: Monday 22 May, 11.00 - 12.00 (Bush House)
  • Mental health: Wednesday 24 May, 14.00 - 15.00 (Guy's Campus)
