Bridge Builders is focused on how to have challenging conversations about discrimination in the workplace and daily life. We run monthly workshops to help you learn, grow, and practice. Each event starts with some education and current research presented by one of our organizers, then later we split into small groups for discussion.
In this workshop we will be exploring how to convey the concept of privilege to a diverse group.
What is privilege, and what does it mean to have privilege in your day to day life?
How do you create conversation among many different perspectives to seek common ground, without antagonizing each other?
We will explore these questions together and discuss tactics to tackle these issues.
Feel free to RSVP for yourself and friends if you are the "woke" person in your group and need a way to have all your friends on board with getting educated ;)
Big thanks to the kind folks at Brainrider who will be hosting us this time!
