get a glimpse of the experience

What is privilege? People often link privilege to race, gender, or affluence. Others believe privilege is connected to how hard you work or a direct reflection of you as an individual, but is it really?

Explore the complex concept of privilege with a virtual privilege walk. Jackie will guide attendees through 41 questions to uncover personal levels of privilege. After the walk, a panel of special guests will discuss their privilege numbers and experiences with privilege throughout their lives. Leave the session empowered to interact with more empathy and kindness in every space, and with all people – in the workplace and beyond.
