Cultural Humility defined further

I attended a wonderful conference presentation at Oxford University with Dr. Roslynn Scott-Adams and Danielle Stokes from National Catholic University. They defined cultural humility in terms of committing to an ongoing relationship with patients/clients, and communities. They suggest further that humility involves a process of ongoing curiosity, self-reflection, and critique, challenges sociocultural mechanisms and injustices, and enables social workers to pursue a transformative agenda rather than reinforce the status quo. Any other thoughts?
