presence, reciprocity, generosity, authenticity, connection, discovery, cultural humility, curiosity, unlearning

cultural humility

 
 

in systems work we are never far from self-reflection, and we are asked to give deep attention to our role in the system. together these practices ask us to sit within a learning mindset, and take as a given, that there is always more work to be done. 

at the systems school we have been taking time to give  thoughtful consideration to our role, to reflect on where we can learn and grow, and how we act with greater cultural humility.  below we share the actions we will hold ourselves accountable to. but even these are just a starting point and will continue to be expanded and adapted as we learn.
