Understanding Privilege & Designing a More Inclusive World with General Assembly Chicago | Handel Group


1:30-3:00PM ET
Tuesday, November 10th
Led by Tyreek Moore

Does the color “nude” match your skin tone? When you look through a history book do you see images of people that primarily look like you?

As a kid, could your family afford to pay for you to play a sport, join the drama club, have a private tutor or attend a non-public school?

Do the leaders (CEOs, Board Members, Founders) of the industry that you currently work in predominantly look like you?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, the simple fact is that yes, you have privilege.

In this webinar, we will address head on (with heart and humility, of course!) the topic of privilege. We will take a deep dive and answer the questions:

  • What is privilege?
  • How privileged am I, exactly?
  • What can I do about it?

This conversation will cast a light on the factors that play into the dynamics of privilege and teach participants how to use those insights to improve the “system” for a fairer and more inclusive world. Designed to foster deep discussion and immersive understanding, this webinar will leave you galvanized and with a broader sense of empathy.

You will also learn:

  • The five different types of privilege and how they impact you and others
  • An understanding of the oppression and obstacles present in the “systems” we are born into
  • How to leverage your own privilege to cause shifts in your life, in your community, and in your organization
