The Impact of Culture on a Supervisory Relationship

Building and Sustaining Meaningful and Effective Relationships as a Supervisor and Mentor

“While sometimes uncomfortable, diversity brings opportunities for learning, connection, and progress.”


The world is comprised of people of varied life experiences, values, and ways of acting in the world. The people we supervise and the people we serve will benefit from our responsiveness to variations and our tenderness in approaching relationships. Our supervisory practices in relation to cultural understanding require constant reflection, evaluation, and adjustment. Nothing will be gained by ignoring meaningful differences in experiences and cultural identity. Instead, the committed supervisor will walk the path of action toward cultivating meaningful culturally responsive practices alongside their trainees, supervisees, and the people they serve.
