White Dominant Culture and Something Different
We all have culture which we express in observable ways, how we interact, what we value and hold to be true. No culture is better than another. We can aim to create inclusive spaces where we all can bring our best and highest selves. At the same time, we can be mindful of how our environments impede our ability to unleash our unlimited potential. In our society, the dominant culture that shapes our institutions, our media, the way we see ourselves and each other is that of the white, middle class. Racial equity trainer Tema Okun suggests that the characteristics of white dominant culture can be harmful not in and of themselves but ‘when they are used as norms and standards without being pro-actively named or chosen by the group…. These attitudes and behaviors can show up in any group or organization, whether it is white-led or predominantly white or people of colour-led or predominantly people of colour.’
