Cultural Proficiency for Social Justice

Through the work of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council we have established the Training Action Team, which consists of a group of facilitators that present on areas of cultural proficiency in regards to social justice, race, power and privilege, poverty, sex and gender, and being an effective ally. If you are interested in having the training brought to your department and office, please contact us for scheduling.

In preparation for the training, we encourage participants to review the terms below:

  • Culture: learned and shared values, beliefs, languages, and customs of a social group

  • Diversity: demographic representations of individual, social, economic, and cultural differences and appreciation of those differences

  • Race: a socially or politically constructed group based on perceived differences in physical characteristics.

  • Ethnicity: a socially or politically constructed group based on cultural criteria, such as language, customs, and shared history

  • Equality: a state, quality, or ideal of treating everyone the same

  • Equity: a state, quality, or ideal of being fair and just

  • Inclusion: a state, quality, or ideal of being part of a group or structure where the inherent worth and dignity of all people are recognized and respected

  • Ally: an individual who takes action to support social justice and works to eliminate oppression

  • Social Justice: active engagement toward equity and inclusion that addresses issues of institutional, structural, and environmental inequity, power, and privilege
