The Power of Privilege: An Interactive Diversity Workshop


February 22, 2018 -
3:00pm to 4:30pm

Diversity means differences, which are undeniable and common to all human groups. To understand what is really at stake when we talk about “diversity,” it is useful to shift our focus to “equity” and “inclusion,” so that we can share strategies and tools for recognizing how our societies and institutions organize people, rather than focusing solely on individual differences. How societies manage differences (of race-ethnicity, gender and sexuality, age, class, ability, and so forth) lead to varied systems of privilege or oppression. Learn more about these concepts, connect their significance to your own life and experiences, and expand your awareness of other perspectives on these issues. This session will be facilitated by anu jain, researcher, Dietrich School professor, and principal consultant of Inclusant.
