Let's Talk About... Power and Privilege

This dialogue is exclusively dedicated to LSA staff

If you have any questions or if accommodations are needed to access the facility or the content of the presentation, please contact Jessica McCuaig (jmccuaig@umich.edu) as soon as possible.

This conversation provides an opportunity to explore the topic of power/status and privilege. We joke about “keeping up with the Joneses” — but there’s real competition in our society for status and the accompanying privilege. How do we decide what we most value that bestows this status? While our country seems to favor wealth, there are other forms of status and privilege. What privilege do each of us enjoy? And how does that correspond with our status? This conversation examines our own status and how we use our status in everyday life. From education to wealth to gender to race, let’s talk about what we have…and what we desire.
