There is no lack of debate today around the weighty issues of power, privilege and difference.  If you are seeking a productive discussion on the subject but don’t know where to start, this class will heighten your awareness of how the politics of identity and the dynamics of power and privilege influence us daily.

Often an emotional hot button, a frank conversation on the impact of diversity, identity, race, power and privilege can be 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 issues 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.

As nonprofit professionals, 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 interactive 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.
