Anti-Oppression: Key Concepts and Skills - May 2013
This workshop has been cancelled. It will be offered again on October 9, 2013 in an all day workshop with our Interrupting Racism Actionshop. For more info click here.
This interactive workshop is a good fit for people who are new to diversity / equity work as well as anyone who would like a refresher on key concepts and skills. It is set up to draw on each person’s experiences and invite a deeper understanding.
Through structured listening activities, small- and large-group conversation, journaling, and just a small amount of presentation by the diverse training team, participants will explore:
- Multiple cultural identities – their own and others’
- Key concepts and experiences of oppression / unearned disadvantage
- Dynamics and experiences of privilege / unearned advantage
- Skills for connecting across differences through introspection, mindful listening, and reflective inquiry
- Ways each participant can continue a lifelong journey around topics of equity and diversity
This workshop takes a broad view of cultural diversity. It encompasses many areas of identity, including race, ethnicity, gender, ability, socioeconomic status, region, and many more.
This is a great foundational workshop for participating in our Interrupting Racism for Everyday Living Actionshop.
Monday evening, May 20, from 5:00-9:00 pm
