Status and Privilege: 90-Minute Conversation w/ Optional 30-Minute Q & A with Hosts!
November 14, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm PST
Status and Privilege
Nov. 14, 2019 @ 7:00 PM EASTERN / 4:00 PM PACIFIC (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.
HERE is the conversation guide. 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?
How does status, or lack of status, affect your sense of personal dignity? How have you noticed it impacting others?
Registration will close 4 hours before the conversation begins.
You will need a device with a webcam to participate (preferably a computer or tablet rather than a cell phone).
