About the Event

MAR Shift Presents... Exploring Identity and Privilege

In this 1.5hr workshop, we explore how different identity factors, and the combination of those factors, provide us with benefits, barriers, or both. The main learning objectives in this session are:

  • Review concepts such as self-identification, intersectionality, stigma, and stereotypes
  • Understand how social constructs work
  • Become familiar with the list of Protected Identity characteristics
  • Map our own identity variables
  • Reflect on areas where we have privilege and how to use it

This session requires participants to complete approximately 15-minutes of light prep work, including reading and reflecting, prior to the session. There will be group discussions based on the prep work provided and an in-session, personal activity. There are no breakout groups.

Additional resources are also provided following the session.
