About this event

Students will critically examine their own identities, to more thoroughly understand the raced, gendered, classed, etc. lenses by which they exist in the world and interact with others, and unpack privilege, power, subordination, intersectionality, and other dynamics.

The goal of this session is to discern where experiential blindspots may exist, that impact the actual goals of inclusion, anti-racism, and belonging. We’ll connect those blindspots to how power operates silently and commit to key action steps to counteract gaps that produce or increase inequities or feelings of lack of belonging. We will also briefly explore self-care for minoritized/marginalized students as an essential part of the ability to survive.
