Post-Conference Workshop: “In Serving Solidarity, Let’s Talk about Privilege: Critical Conversations About ‘Unsustainable’ Race, Class & Gender Privilege”

October 18, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm

Dr. Heather Hackman will be presenting a pre-conference institute, a post-conference workshop, a concurrent workshop and a poster session at the 2017 Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education Conference & Expo.

Workshop Description:

While attention to the ways dynamics of racism, classism and gender oppression target people of color and native people, poor and working class people, and cisgender women and trans* folks is critically important to our sustainability work, too often the “other side” of these dynamics are left invisible and thus unchallenged and unchanged. More specifically, while some campuses are willing to consider the impacts of racism on their sustainability work, less frequent is the willingness to look at the ways white privilege has impacted that work. This half-day workshop is designed to help participants dive more deeply into the complicated and often fraught conversation about race, class and gender privilege in the service of developing more collaborative campus sustainability efforts. To be sure this is not a session mired in guilt, shame and blame, and instead: 1) explores these dynamics of privilege through a social justice lens, 2) identifies the unconscious and unintentional ways race, class and gender privilege thwart collective sustainability work on our campuses, 3) suggests ways to interrupt and dismantle these privileged dynamics, and then 4) connects this social justice work to the creation of effective and forward-thinking campus sustainability efforts.
