Course Description: This workshop provides an opportunity to expand the knowledge participants have gained about the policy of affirmative action in the Equal Employment Opportunity workshop. A historical overview of the policy is explored, as well as the legal obligations of federal contractors with regards to affirmative action. Often, misinformation, mis-communication, and myths surround the concept of affirmative action, which will be clarified in this workshop. Participants will learn about the various individuals and groups involved in shaping the policy of affirmative action as well as the actual implementation of affirmative action in a selection decision.
Instructor(s) & Course Description
Instructors: Rick Dellafave
Course Description: Course Description: In contrast to the popular conception of class inequality as the outcome of an individualistic, meritocratic process, we offer a competing conception based on the exploitation of human labor and labor’s struggle to overcome it. We examine how and why class inequality has been increasing rapidly today. We also see how class inequality works to prevent the achievement of racial and gender equality.
It has been said that with power comes great responsibility (Voltaire). The discussions surrounding privilege are often difficult to navigate because they involve a level of self-reflection that often goes unexamined. Privilege is typically unearned, and often unseen by the holder, yet privilege is a very real idea and experience that good leaders examine, an intimately use “for good and not evil”. This session will help participants explore their own privilege, and how privilege and power can be harnessed in leadership scenarios to make a difference. Participants will undergo self-assessment, will engage in dialogue with one another about the elements of privilege, power, and multicultural competence, and moreover, how these concepts can be positively applied to their own leadership adventure. Regardless of your position, your privilege, or lack thereof, this session is open to everyone looking to better understand the complexities of leading in a diverse environment.
