What I Know About Culture The term culture hails from the Latin word cultura which means to cultivate. According to Merriam-Webster, culture is a set of common attitudes, objectives, practices, and values that define a certain group of people or organization. There are various synonyms of culture; aestheticism, civilization, experience, refinement, manners, savoir-faire, and the list go on. An organization’s culture comprises of values, strategic goals, dress code, corporate social responsibility, and such. Companies strive to distinguish themselves from competitors by having a different culture that paints them in the best light, so they can appease clients and the public. Similarly, learning institutions like colleges and high schools have a culture that sheds light on what they are about even to people who don’t know them. Important to note that culture forms the basis of how people perceive a school, company, an industry, or even the government. Just recently, it became apparent that the entertainment industry is mired with a bad culture perpetuated by (mostly) white men who sexually assault women. Based on earth-scorching reports by the #MeToo movement and recounts by victims, the world became privy to a longstanding culture where women are treated like sex objects all in the name of landing jobs. When cornered, the men simply wrote cheques to dismiss their victims and some would blackball their victims so they didn’t find work in the industry. This is a shining example of the negative effects of a bad culture that goes unchecked for too long. It is also the material characteristics of everyday life that are practiced by a religious or social group. These values and way of life are transmitted to each generation through social learning such as when parents teach children how to conduct themselves in public. For instance, Christians have a culture of attending church services on Sundays and sometimes during the work week, and Muslims have a culture of praying five times a day. This distinction is also seen with the tribes of Africa where each tribe has an idiosyncratic way of life such as the garb they adorn, cultural practices like dowry and early marriages, economic activities like farming and cattle herding, etc. For most of these tribes like the Samburu and Maasai of East Africa, they have held on to their culture and only allowed contemporary attitudes to a small measure. Culture is not just a single entity but rather many elements that include religion, traditional practices, language, food, dance, art, technology, and so much more. In terms of technology, one could say that the 21st Century has a strong internet culture that is seen with social media dependency and e-commerce. Technology is also seen in healthcare through electronic health records, Artificial Intelligence, and 3D printing that is becoming widely adopted. Technology and internet use have become part and parcel of everyday life even in remote places such as the rural provinces in China that are now utilizing e-commerce. Culture is also defined as the enlightenment and perfection of taste that is instilled through formal training such as in fine arts, education disciplines, etc. High art is yet another element of culture that is mainly practiced in the higher echelons of society. The wealthy people engage in art auctions where pieces could fetch as high as millions of dollars. My understanding of culture is a way of life for people; the East, the West, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Caribbean, and such. People in all these regions have a distinctive look, dress code, food, music, dance, and cultural practices that make them so unique. For instance, Italians are known for pasta, Africans for their elaborate attires, Asians for technology, and such. Within these cultures are sub-cultures that behave differently and have different beliefs and customs.

Culture is a set of common practices, values, objectives and attitudes that is owned by a
