Power & Privilege
Bias (and Unconscious Bias) Training
Description: Making the business case for diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) programs can be challenging. Part of this process involves understanding that we all benefit from some form of privilege; this Breakfast Culture course helps all team members regardless of their identities, backgrounds or work functions realize this fact in a relevant, engaging and approachable fashion. We use popular culture to discuss representation and why it is important. We share our own stories and journeys of understanding our own levels of privilege.
Finally, we facilitate a group exercise around different forms of privilege. What inevitably happens in every training session is the resulting lessons actually come from team members themselves as they work through the exercise and put the previous discussions into practice.
Focus: Privilege (and unconscious bias) training course
