Transforming Power, Prejudice and Privilege: Building Equitable, Diverse and Inclusive Organizations
Date and Time
Join this 2-part workshop organized by the Learning and Development team.
Recognizing that our social structures and personal biases can get in the way of our commitment to respecting our colleagues, students, and other members of the UG community, this interactive workshop engages themes of power, prejudice, and privilege in a manner that honours all voices in the room while also challenging the biases and structures that privilege some over others and damage the possibility of healthy, diverse relationships and learning communities.
The two 2-hr. sessions will include: definitions & foundational principles (re: prejudice, racism and other “-isms”); the human need for belonging; the realities of the us-them dynamic; the trajectory toward dehumanization; the difficulty of getting into another’s shoes, etc.); reflection and dialogue regarding the realities / experiences of prejudice, racism, and other “-isms”; microskills for responding to incidents of prejudice and racism as they arise; tools & concepts for transforming Power, Prejudice and Privilege.
This session is 2 parts, running on October 21 and October 29. You are automatically registered for part 2 when you register for part 1.
