Cougar Byte Podcast, "Part II: Heart, the Book"

In part two of this 3-part series, we continue our conversation with Dr. James Knight and his work with cultural humility. He reminds us that while fundamentally our questions remain constant, answers to questions change day-to-day; on our respective journeys toward cultural humility, it's critical that we not only continue to ask questions but also listen as replies evolve.

Hosts: Syma Latif and Cathy Shin

Guest: Dr. James Knight, Vice President for Equity and Inclusion at St. Edward High School in Lakewood, OH, as well as a coach/mentor, consultant, itinerant speaker/teacher, equity and inclusion strategist, and author of numerous books including Heart: A Journey Toward Cultural Humility (order here).

“The beautiful thing about a question is that the answer is always changing.” - Dr. Knight

“We must ask ourselves, can you really be competent in another person's lived experience?” Dr. Knight

“Life is a university. Learn from everyone but major in yourself.” Dr. Knight
