Online Living Room Conversation: Status and Privilege
April 23 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm PDT
April 23, 2019 @ 6:30 – 8:00 pm ET / 3:30 – 5:00 pm PT (adjust for your time zone)
We joke about “keeping up with the Joneses” — but there’s real competition in our society for status and the accompanying privilege. How do we decide what we most value that bestows this status? While our country seems to favor wealth, there are other forms of status and privilege. What privilege do each of us enjoy? And how does that correspond with our status? This conversation examines our own status and how we use our status in everyday life. From education to wealth to gender to race, let’s talk about what we have…and what we desire.
Please see the conversation guide for this topic. Some of the questions explored include:
- What status do you enjoy? Education, wealth, gender, race, etc?
- What are the privileges of your status?
- What do you value and how is that connected to your status or privilege?
You will need a device with a webcam to participate (preferably a computer or tablet rather than a cell phone).
