Me, We, Us: Individual and Collective Power through Exploration of Social Identities (Staff & Faculty Session)
Online in Zoom
Online in Zoom

Intended Audience: This session is open to all SPH Faculty & Staff members, and will be particularly useful for SPH community members who have attended Session #1: From Root to Reality: Understanding the Foundations of Racial Inequity and Connecting the Dots throughout History to Contemporary Climate, or who are familiar with core concepts related to racism and anti-racism and are looking to learn more about racism’s relationship to other forms of inequity.

Workshop Description: Racism is not a separate dimension of power, conversely it runs through all aspects of our society as the most historically successful mechanism of othering and categorizing people. It’s imperative to lead with race explicitly but not exclusively. As a result, this session will help participants:

  1. understand the connections between race and other aspects of identity such as gender, class, sexuality, ability, etc.
  2. explore race and racism’s connections to other aspects of identity and other systems of inequity, thereby building on Session #1by further encouraging participants to explore their own identities and spheres of influence.
  3. by introducing relationship building across identities as a key component of anti-racist practice and transformation.
