Recognizing Privilege: A True Beginning to Social Change

This session will explore privilege as it relates to dominant identities and discuss how one’s privilege has systemic advantages regardless if earned or aware. Participants will receive a basic introduction to privilege followed by an interactive activity that will identify individual areas of systemic advantage based on social group affiliation. The participants who would gain the most from this session are those who are willing to go beyond their comfort zone and engage in difficult conversations that will not only challenge them to be more conscious of their behaviors, but also serve as motivation for social change. This session is not intended to target anyone’s identity or make folks feel guilty about their privilege(s); rather, make them aware of their personal advantages and hopefully inspire them to be more inclusive. A brave space will be created so participants can engage in dialogue and not feel judged or targeted.
Learning Objectives:

Identify common advantaged identities
Understand their own privilege(s) based on association with various social identity groups
Reflect on personal experiences where privilege was consciously or unconsciously manifested in their daily interactions
