Confronting Oppression
Examine the existence of power, privilege, and injustice while working toward equity

Most social systems are structured to keep people with power, in power.  As a result, many of us benefit in varying degrees and so it can be difficult to identify and challenge disparities.  This workshop helps you explore concepts of power, privilege, and oppression, and what you can do to work toward equity.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define privilege and oppression
  • Explore power within social systems
  • Identify actions you can take to work toward equity

This workshop is open to and free for all UCD students - join us!  The workshop also serves as one of the required prerequisite workshops for the Diversity Leadership Development Program (DLDP).

Policies and Best Practices

Out of respect to our facilitators and other participants, our policy is that students must arrive on time and stay for the full workshop.

We follow all campus and CDC guidelines as our minimum safety procedures; the website https://campusready.ucdavis.edu is an excellent resource for information and updates. At this time, face coverings are required inside for everyone regardless of vaccination status. Eating is not allowed in classrooms, hallways, lobbies, or other public areas except for removing a mask to take a quick drink.

Stay home if you are sick! Be ready to show your approval message that you are cleared to access UC Davis campus sites. All workshops are offered multiple times this quarter (including online) and again in future  quarters.  Please prioritize your health and the health of others.

The CLL strives to make our workshops and programs accessible to the undergraduate community. If you need accommodations, please email us at cll@ucdavis.edu.
