Social Equity Foundations: Systems at Play

January 26, 2022 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm CET

// English below //

“Social Equity Foundations” (”Grundlagen der sozialen Gerechtigkeit”) ist eine neue Lernreihe der aequa-Gemeinschaft, in der Mitglieder des aequa Workshops Collective interaktive Online-Treffen zu Themen wie soziale Gerechtigkeit, Intersektionalität, empfindlich Kommunikation, gleichberechtigtes Organisieren und Peer Empowerment leiten werden.

Vorerst werden diese Workshops auf Englisch abgehalten. Bist du daran interessiert, ähnliche Workshops auf Deutsch oder in einer anderen Sprache zu veranstalten oder an ihnen teilzunehmen? Dann melde dich bei hello@aequa.cc und lass uns darüber reden!

Systems at Play: Building awareness of intersectionality and unconscious bias

This is the first workshop in “Social Equity Foundations,” a community learning series in which members of the aequa Workshops Collective will lead interactive online meetups on topics like social equity, intersectionality, conscious communication, equitable organising and peer empowerment.

In this first session, we will work together to grow our consciousness around intersectionality — a concept that describes the cumulative way that various parts of our identities (such as gender, race, sexuality, ability, class, body type and many more) can impact the way each of us moves through the world. We’ll be digging into questions like these:

  • What do we mean when we talk about privilege and marginalisation, and what kind of impacts these factors can play in our daily lives as we interact with those around us?
  • How do dynamics of power and identity play out in our communities, for example in the form of microaggressions?
  • What are some “cases for caring” about these topics that I can use when presenting to thsoe who might not have thought about them before?

If you are new to these topics yourself or you are someone who is trying to get better at talking about these topics more courageously with friends, family, colleagues and collaborators, then this workshop is for you!

These workshops are offered on a sliding-scale basis from zero to €20. You will receive payment info along with the link to the video conference after registering.

For the moment these workshops will be led in English. Are you interested in hosting or participating in similar workshops in German or another language? Get in touch with hello@aequa.cc and let’s chat about it!
