Florida Housing Coalition Presents: Cultural Competency


The Florida Housing Coalition is returning to the Suncoast! Amanda Rosado will be presenting a specialized training on Cultural Competency on February 18, 2020 during a morning session and afternoon session.


What is cultural competency?

Cultural competence is the ability to understand, communicate with and effectively interact with people across cultures. Cultural competence encompasses. being aware of one's own world view. developing positive attitudes towards cultural differences. gaining knowledge of different cultural practices and world views.

This training focuses on utilizing cultural humility to practice cultural competence.

Cultural humility is a willingness to suspend what you know, or what you think you know, about a person based on generalizations about their culture. Rather, the worker learns about their clients’ culture, and the ways they self-identify, from being open to what they themselves have determined is their personal culture and identification.
