Part 2 of 4 part series on Social Status:
Privilege: How does it affect social status?
Mid-Day Women's Alliance is pleased to host Imagine Fox Cities’ (IFC) Community Conversations exploring topics related to society and status, especially as they affect one's sense of belonging:
Class, Privilege, Allyship and Bridging
You can access the conversation guides here: https://www.imaginefoxcities.com/social-status-series/.
Privilege is unearned advantage that comes from membership in a group that has institutional and structural power. Common types of privilege are related to race (white privilege), gender (male privilege), sexual orientation (heterosexual privilege), and socioeconomic status (class privilege). Because our identities are multidimensional and intersectional, one aspect of our identity can enhance or diminish the privilege we experience due to another aspect of our identity. As an example, consider the complexity of advantage and disadvantage for a wealthy, Latinx lesbian.Our conversation will explore our perceptions and experiences with privilege and "social equity."
The IFC Belonging Conversations offer a simple, sociable and structured way to practice communicating across differences while building understanding and relationships. This new series will help us understand more about what social status means and how we can use our power and individual agency to create a more inclusive community in which everyone is valued and we all know that we belong.
Plan now to attend all four sessions on Social Status--or whatever you can fit into your summer schedule--all sessions will be 11:30 - 1:00 via Zoom.
