BUILD: The Dynamics of Difference

This session focuses on defining power and privilege and their effects in continuing systematic oppression. Participants will have the opportunity to reflect on their identities, specifically which ones hold privilege and which ones do not. In this session, participants will also learn how to address the conflict they or others may feel about their privileged identities.

The Building University of Iowa Leadership for Diversity (BUILD) certificate is an initiative of the Chief Diversity Office that gives UI faculty and staff the opportunity to gain strategic knowledge and skills to contribute to a welcoming and inclusive campus environment. The certificate is earned by completing one core course and five electives. To learn more about the BUILD initiative and how to enroll visit: http://diversity.uiowa.edu/programs/build.
