Privilege: Its Impact On Our Workplace + Culture

Thu, Mar 25, 2021, 4:30 PM (CDT)

About this event

Companies and humanity are increasing their awareness, understanding and capabilities to support a diverse workforce that is equitable, inclusive and creates belonging. But, we are far from “arriving.” What can we do to address privilege in the workplace?

Join us for an event that provides an unforgettable virtual experience to help increase our self-awareness while gaining an understanding of others. Participants will:

- Increase understanding of privilege and marginalization

- Reflect on your own identify and lived experiences of others

- Develop a deeper sense of empathy

- Learn how to be a better ally for others

- Gain clarity on how increased awareness can facilitate behavior and culture change

- Understand how a tool can support efforts through memorable experiences and data-driven ways to measure, sustain and scale Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) efforts in your community or organization

During this 90-minute session you will experience a digitized and totally anonymous version of the Walk of Privilege exercise which is designed to help you develop a deeper sense of empathy by reflecting on your own identity and the lived experiences of others through the lens of privilege and marginalization.
