  • Unpacking Power and Privilege

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    ​Privilege is inherent in our social structures, in the way society is organized and in how it functions. Because our privilege is woven into our lives and circumstances, we often take it for granted, and rarely stop to consider its benefits—unless they are threatened or taken away from us. We all have prejudices. Discrimination happens when we act on the prejudices that are rooted in our personal, cultural, and institutional lives. This will be one of three presentations focused on unpacking power and privilege and the institutional barriers they create. Following this presentation, participants will discuss the implications of power and privilege on the experiences of members and stakeholders. Each group will offer strategic recommendations for how RID can remove institutional barriers and enhance member engagement at the local, state and national level.
