Your Privilege and Diversity Story
Most of us have a strong desire to effect change in the world. We have strong ideals, and we’re learning to use our voices to share them. We feel full of passion, and yet sometimes… it’s not exactly flow. We can get stuck by our privilege and diversity stories.
These challenges pop up often as we’re trying to ride the energy of passion. A lot of the difficult conversations required for change also require new and improved language. It’s not unusual to find yourself at a bit of a loss. After all, we’re learning a lot of new things – about ourselves and about others – that we haven’t fully processed but don’t want to ignore.
Together we’re going to come out with a shared language of what it means to create a just and inclusive world. So how do we navigate through this trailblazing time, have an impact on the causes we care about, include voices from many different arenas, and not be stunted by shame around either our priviledge or our diversity?
Let’s start by sharing our stories.
