Privilege and Power
How do privilege and power function through society, and how does it affect you, personally? By reflecting on this, you can identify strategies to become more inclusive in your teaching and in the workplace. This seminar will help you better understand your own multiple identities and the presence and absence of privileges based on your identities. By the end of the workshop, you will be able to analyze how privilege and power exist and function in U.S. culture and how they impact your view of the world. Participants are welcome to bring a lunch to this discussion. Registration is required.
