Making Room for Cultural Humility
May 3 @ 3:40 pm – 4:50 pm
Home Care and hospice agencies must ensure Black, Latina, Asian, LGBTQIA+, and other underrepresented communities are heard. We need to make room for diverse talent as we navigate the 21st Century. Making room does not mean others going mute; there are more opportunities to look at how we navigate our shared ecosystem and lifelong learning, which translates as cultural humility. All care provided should be patient-focused and embody a culture of humility to assure that caregivers have a greater understanding of different cultures and that they recognize each patient’s unique cultural experience. Today’s leaders must empower marginalized voices to take a more active stance, and that will require all leaders to examine their respect towards cultural backgrounds and experiences critically.
Maqubè Reese will offer an honest reflection on connecting with all ages and identities and a pragmatic approach to welcome the opportunity to observe, engage, learn, heal, and champion others to ensure an inclusive, equitable, inter sectional ecosystem for all.
