Brown Bag: Naming and Weakening Privilege In the Context of COVID-19

Practices of inequity and power imbalance stem from assigning privilege to a particular group, causing repercussions for people who do not fit the preconceived “standards” set in place by society. So what exactly is privilege and why does its mention immediately shut down potentially equitable conversations?

Campus Affinity Group, Black Faculty and Staff Association (BSFA) will help you to name and weaken privilege based on race, gender, sexual orientation, religion and socioeconomic status. This workshop will define and explore the nature of privilege and how developing an understanding of privilege can grant us the ability to drive social and cultural change. To do so, you will:

  • Define privilege
  • Examine the discomfort that comes with discussing privilege
  • Identify privilege in the workplace
  • Compare equity versus equality
  • Develop a willingness to challenge power imbalances and seek change
