What is cultural competence?Navigating Difference logo

Cultural competence is the ability to interact and communicate effectively with people from diverse cultures, including those of a different age, socioeconomic status, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, ability, race, and more.

What is Navigating Difference© cultural competence training?

Navigating Difference© was developed by Washington State University Extension and enables participants to create a safe and welcoming environment for all learners with activities that respect and support individual learning styles.

Learn How to:

  • Become more aware of our personal and organizational cultures
  • Examine how these cultures both positively and negatively affect our ability to work across difference
  • Build skills to increase our cultural competencies as we work with others who are different from us

Navigating Difference© is not about specific cultural groups, trying to change your values, blaming or fault finding, or creating guilt or angry situations.
