Cultural competence is the capacity to be aware of, have respect for and work effectively with people from different ethnic, cultural, political, economic and religious backgrounds than one’s own while being aware of how one’s own culture influences perceptions of and interactions with others. This also requires an understanding of the significance of differences within groups and between them.
