Recognising Privilege and Power of Multiple Selves in the Workplace

Participants will have the chance to reflect upon their own unique privileges, to build empathy towards those who are underprivileged, to learn about how to leverage their privileges to do good through discussions, experiential and interactive activities

Description

At Community Business, we believes that everyone deserves to have a voice, and it is up to the privileged ones to be the voices of the underprivileged ones in the pursuit of freedom of expression, a sense of belonging towards their community, and finally the ability to fully realize their potentials. Through participating in this workshop, participants will have the chance to reflect upon their own unique privileges, to build empathy towards those who are underprivileged, and to learn about how to leverage their privileges to do good.

Key Takeaways

  • Recognize identities as multiple facets instead of a single entity 
  • Recognize that identities are associated with certain privileges in the context of diversity and inclusion 
  • Recognize intersectionality as an important concept to consider when companies are moving along their diversity and inclusion journey
