19/05 Interactive Lecture: Cultural Awareness and Sensitivity

19 May 2022 19:30 till 21:30 - By: Communication | Add to my calendar

Want to learn more about what effect micro aggression in questions like 'Where do you come from? No, I mean REALLY come from?" can have? Want to learn more about how to understand other people whose cultural background isn’t the same as yours? Then you must join us for the interactive lecture about Cultural Awareness and Sensitivity!

The idea behind cultural sensitivity is very straightforward. Cultural sensitivity refers to a set of skills that allows you to learn about and understand people whose cultural background is not the same as yours.

But what does that really mean?

In this lecture by Sarita Bajnath you will learn some important insights about culture, class, ethnicity, we and I culture and culturalization. She will facilitate a safe space to share funny ( and awkward) stories that open the heart and minds to new experiences. We will also discuss what effect micro aggressions can have and why the question “where do you REALLY come from” can be a bit annoying.
