Understanding Oppression: The Intersecting 'isms'

Thu, Aug 17, 2017 -
8:00 am to 10:00 am

Join us for the Diversity Forum on August 17th as we kick off a new series on “Confronting the ‘isms’ ”!

As we seek to work for social justice, it is crucial to understand what oppression is and how it operates, its intersectional nature, and what some of the “isms” are that we don’t talk about as much.

Our first session will set the foundation for our new series, unpacking the concepts of oppression and intersectionality, so that we can have a solid understanding of what oppression is and how all of the “isms” intersect.

We are excited to have Angelique Arroyo, Owner of Angelique Guides: Infrastructures for Conscious Leaders & Collective Healing, who will facilitate a training for us on this topic.

A light breakfast is provided.
