Social Justice and the Power of Oppression

Friday, February 21, 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm EST

In this workshop, participants will be prompted in high levels of thinking about their own identities, communicating across identities, understanding power and oppression, and how they engage in these topics with others. Participants will also discuss how their unconscious biases play into perpetuating systems of oppression and what tools we can use to disrupt this thinking.

This workshop is designed for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Space is limited. For faculty and staff, please contact RackhamEvents@umich.edu to see if we can accommodate your attendance.
