Intention ≠ Impact | Carmen Cruz | TEDxTWU​

No matter how culturally sensitive, we all say things that hurt others even when coming from a place of good intensions. Let’s speak up in a forgiving tone about words that hurt, own our imperfections in phrasing, and continually grow to be more cultural competence.


TWU Commencement Speech

Texas Woman's University Arts & Sciences Graduation speech by Dr. Carmen Cruz, Associate Director and Director of Training at the University. 

I commonly say "there's space for everyone in the circle" and what I mean by that is that there are SO many perspectives and it is important that we value all of the differences in our cultures and experiences.
