Given the persistent racial and ethnic disparities in the United States, cultural competence trainings for health professionals are more common than ever. Coupled with the respect for cultural and racial differences is the need for discussion surrounding bias, implicit bias and microaggressions. This webinar is designed to recognize the importance of Cultural Humility, develop an understanding of respect for cultural and racial differences and focus on techniques for being professional in conduct and speech while addressing bias that impacts healthcare employees and patients.
