Begin by conducting a self-assessment of your own cultural competence. Reflect on your understanding of different cultures, beliefs, and values. Consider your experiences with people from diverse backgrounds, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, religion, nationality, and socioeconomic status. Identify specific instances where you have demonstrated cultural competence or encountered challenges related to cultural differences. Describe these situations and your reactions. Discuss your strengths and weaknesses in terms of cultural competence. What cultural biases or assumptions have you identified within yourself?
