Perspectives on Privilege
The concept of privilege relates to benefits experienced by people because they fit into a specific social group or have particular aspects to their identity. We can experience privilege because of our race, gender, religion or sexual orientation as well as many other characteristics — and equally we can experience a lack of it too.
Privilege can be difficult to admit experiencing, and in this session we create a safe space to explore it, understand our own privilege, how to use it for good and give a voice to others through positive allyship.
