Chelsea Thoms Assignment: Reaction Paper #2 I plan to increase my ability to understand differences among people and change my behavior in a way that enhances, rather than distracts from diversity. I will do this by increasing my cultural competence and by celebrating diversity because diversity affects everyone. There are five steps I plan on following to developing cultural competence. The first step requires me to value diversity. I can do this by realizing that diversity allows for differences and being thankful that not everyone is the same. The second step is to identify and evaluate personal perceptions and attitudes. I can do this by realizing that the influence of my family and culture, my experiences, and my fear of differences makes me have a specific perception and attitude. The third step to cultural competence is being aware of what happens when cultures interact. To become aware of this and I can watch students from different cultures at UGA interact. The fourth step is to build knowledge about other cultures.
