Deconstructing the White, Heterosexual, Male Experience: One Man’s Journey into Diversity Advocacy

Author
  • Stephanie Zywicki (Iowa State University)

Abstract

Diversity advocacy is not the usual place to find a white, male, heterosexual ally. However, through a series of personal stories and encouragement from colleagues and supervisors, you will discover how an individual came to understand his “privilege” and embrace social justice. The presentation will deconstruct the various experiences of being white, male, and heterosexual and how critical race theory, social justice principles, and environmental influences affect an individual’s development and support for diversity.
