Turning Privilege Into Change is designed to engage participants in critical thinking, dialogue and activities regarding their own various layers of privilege in relation to the world around them. This workshop starts with awareness and ends with action. Are you someone who has wondered about their privilege? Are you aware of your privilege but feel lost in what to do next? Do you want to be a better active ally to marginalized communities? In this workshop we will use exercises and discussions to understand new vocabulary, different forms of privilege and oppression, we will explore intersectionality, and we will learn how to turn privilege into change.
- Engaging the first steps to becoming an active ally – awareness, movement, change
- Dialogue, critical thinking, and discussion about why active allyship is important.
- Skill set building and identifying effective behavioral changes within ourselves.
