Presenter: Dr. Alex Kappus, Senior Director for Student Success in the College of Education, NC State University
As a white, middle-class, degree-holding, heterosexual, able-bodied, cisgender man, I carry a great deal of unearned power and privilege in most spaces. Perhaps you hold privilege in one or more of your identities too. Privilege does not prohibit one from entering conversations about diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). Instead, privilege can be leveraged to build more inclusive communities. In this workshop, participants will explore the importance of allyship in creating inclusive environments and strategies for inviting others to join you as an ally in advancing DEI.
