Developing cultural competency - Welcome to King's session
24 September 2020, 14:00 to 15:30 Please note: this event has passed
At the heart of King’s College London’s vision for internationalisation are two core values: cultural competency and having a global problem solving mindset.
We define cultural competency as the ability to see the world through the lens of others – in all their diversity. This includes people from different nations and regions, socio-economic backgrounds, races, genders, ages, religions and abilities.
Students and staff at King’s develop their cultural competency at home, abroad and online. Our own diversity, curriculum, interdisciplinarity, London location, dedication in service to society and global reach all combine to make this possible.
This interactive session will introduce students to the concepts of cultural competency, positionality, intersectionality and self-reflection, and provide an opportunity to discuss the importance of and approaches to developing these essential skills, attitudes and behaviours. It will also showcase resources to help students develop their cultural competency, and invite expressions of interest to join forthcoming workshops and interdisciplinary collaborations.
