Have you found a lack of productive discourse around issues of diversity, identity, power, privilege and all the related hot button issues swirling around these dynamics?
Are you interested in learning about your own identity, those of your co-workers, clients, and the larger community? Are you uncomfortable with, or unclear about, the implications of socially constructed labels and stereotypes?
As nonprofit organizations, do we/should we have a higher commitment to social justice?
We created this timely interactive experience to come together for a constructive discussion on the subjects of the politics of identity and the dynamics of power and privilege, all of which influence us.
A frank conversation on the impact of diversity, identity, race, power and privilege can be intimidating or uncomfortable and therefore elusive. But recognizing that these issues impact us both in our work and personally, this session will help us think critically and objectively about factors relating to inequality and oppression. Together with other nonprofit professionals, we will explore these issues to build greater self-awareness on how identity impacts the dynamics of power and privilege in all aspects of our lives.
In our work and volunteer roles we serve missions, many of which incorporate social justice, elimination of oppression and promotion of equality and human rights. That makes it essential that we delve into these issues honestly and collaboratively, if we are going to fulfill our promise. This highly synergistic session will enable you to look objectively at ways we use, or experience, influence, power and privilege in our own lives and the lives of those around us, offering a day of “aha” moments that will serve you well moving forward.
