Privilege, Power and Difference: How Thinking Differently About Privilege Can Promote Diversity
Start Date: 11/14/2012Start Time: 11:00 AM
End Date: 11/14/2012End Time: 11:50 AM
Event Description:

In the book Privilege, Power, and Difference, Allan G. Johnson argues that organizational approaches promoting diversity are limited by their inability to make the problem an issue for everyone, not just women, people of color, the disabled, etc. The presentation will suggest ways of thinking about privilege that can free us to acknowledge not only our status as members of an oppressed category(ies) but also our privileged status(es), thus better enabling us to talk and act across our various categories of difference. Finally, the presentation will suggest practical actions we can take to advance the work of making lasting change. Presenters: Denice Walker, Melinda Piket-May, Nola Salisbury
