Understanding Power and Privilege Workshop for Board Members

October 19, 2021 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Equity Institute

How does race, gender, ableism, heterosexism, and ageism affect your board? This workshop explores:

  • what privilege is, who has it and how it works for them
  • how power and privilege are connected
  • how the misuse of power and privilege become oppression

Participants will explore how misuse of power and privilege play out in a board setting and what can be done to work against it.
