Conference

Virtual Privilege Walk

Author
  • Mindy Heggen (Iowa State University)

Abstract

This activity will provide you with an opportunity to understand the intricacies of privilege and to explore the ways that we enjoy privileges based on being members of certain identities in the United States. This exercise seeks to highlight the fact that everyone has SOME privilege, even as some people have more privilege than others do. The goal is to help participants recognize ways that we can use our privileges individually and collectively to work for social justice. There will be small group and large group discussion involved but you will not be required to speak if you do not wish to. (A way to mark your virtual steps forward and backward will be needed. This can be paper and pen, or virtual tally system.)
