Cultural competency and humility

This course aims to support internal auditors to be aware of their cultural views and the implications these can have on their working relationships with others from different cultures. In addition, you will learn about what cultural competency and cultural humility are and their importance. There are an infinite amount of cultures; therefore, it would be impossible to equip you with knowledge on them all and how best to interact with people who identify and belong to those cultures. Therefore, this course does not seek to teach you about specific cultures. Instead, this course teaches you a helpful mindset and approach to working with diverse groups of people.

What will I learn?

After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe what cultural competency and cultural humility are and are not in practice.
  • Assess your personal cultural perspectives and how this may influence your working relationships.
  • Use practical strategies to be culturally humble.

Who should do the course?

All internal auditors - as an introduction to cultural humility, or refresher to the topic.

We recommend that you do the course Recognising and managing unconscious bias before you do this one.

What will I do?

The course comprises one module. You will be able to download your certificate of completion once you’ve worked through the module.

You have 90 days to complete the course; however, it shouldn’t take you more than one hour to complete it.

Technical requirements

The course is online so you will need access to an internet-enabled device. The material is responsive and will display well on most devices.  However, you will need a laptop or PC with a mouse to complete some of the quiz questions. The material is written so you don’t need earphones or speakers.
