Power, Privilege, Progress: Awareness to Action - a one-and-a-half-day symposium will take place on Friday, October 19 and Saturday October 20, 2018 at North Shore Community College, Lynn Campus 300 Broad St. Lynn, MA.
This event is produced and hosted by: The Privilege Institute, American Association of University Women - North Shore Area Branch, and North Shore Community College Forum on Tolerance.
Symposium participants will learn about the history of privilege in this country and explore ways to advance equity. With the help of outstanding keynote speakers and dynamic workshops, we will explore issues such as income inequality, disparities in the justice system, and barriers to education and employment, as impediments to progress.
This is not about blame; it is about listening deeply, talking with each other, and increasing our awareness bringing us closer to the understanding we all desire.
All are invited to attend. Scholarships are available on an “as needed” basis. Your attendance is an investment in the future of our communities, which are enriched by diverse experiences.
Registration will begin in September: firstname.lastname@example.org
