Cultural Humility Training Directory launched


Cultural Humility Training Directory for City and Hackney

Following a VCS Assembly held in 2021 on ‘How to make City and Hackney anti-racist,’ Hackney CVS has published a Cultural Humility Training Directory. 

Click here to see the directory.

What is it?
The directory is a guide to cultural humility training available in City and Hackney. The training sessions are delivered by local organisations that reflect the communities they are representing.
Cultural humility encourages a nature of openness, understanding the complexity of identities and encourages ongoing learning and reflection, essential to achieving anti-racism and equitable diversity and inclusion (Health City, 2022).

Who is it for and how can I use it?
We have pulled together training relevant to organisations across our local health and social care system for both the statutory and voluntary and community sectors. The training sessions aim to cover topics identified as important by our community. Use this directory to find training for you or your organisation to improve your inclusive and anti-racist working.

Why this directory?
Hackney CVS delivered a VCS Assembly on ‘How to make City and Hackney anti-racist’ in October 2021. This highlighted a lack of understanding around cultural diversity, humility and anti-racism across the voluntary and community sector (VCS) and health and social care sector, and a need for better awareness of available training in the boroughs.

Future work
This directory is the first stage of developing and delivering a multi-faceted training programme based around cultural humility and anti-racism for organisations across City and Hackney – including health and social care services, frontline providers, VCS organisations and residents, individual/community capacity building. This aims to empower individuals and organisations working with the community across City and Hackney to work in an anti-racist way, to prevent the re-traumatisation of the wider community.

If you would be interested in being part of a consortium of organisations developing and delivering this training programme, please contact

Training topics may include:

  • race as a construct (based on reverse discourse theory)
  • anti-racism
  • positive and uniting language
  • unconscious and conscious bias
  • allyship and inclusive leadership reflecting on meetings for any biases expressed
  • awareness of microaggressions
  • the importance of personal identity and power
  • how structural racism manifests and impacts our communities.
