We can all benefit from recognising that privilege exists and how it affects our lives. Recognising and acknowledging your privilege doesn’t mean you’re a bad person. And understanding how you may lack privilege can help you to see how things beyond your control may impact your life. Ignoring privilege increases the likelihood that you, your colleagues, and your loved ones could be excluded in ways that may not be obvious to you. This course will help you to recognise your privilege.
Many people don’t feel like they have privilege, even if it’s obvious to others that they do. It’s all a matter of perspective, and this course will help you to understand and define what privilege is. It will also explain what intersectionality is and the role it plays in recognising privilege.
Privilege is a complex subject to address. If someone pointed out the ways in which your life is easier because of factors beyond your control, like race, gender, or class, you might feel defensive or embarrassed. But the truth is, most of us benefit from some form of privilege, usually without even realising it. Benefitting from privilege doesn’t mean your life has been easy or you haven’t struggled. But it’s important to recognise that your privilege hasn’t made your life harder, whereas lacking it does create barriers for others.
Sadly, not everyone has equal privilege. People can benefit from or lack it in many different ways. Recognising the privilege that you and others have is the 1st step towards establishing a fairer society for everyone.
Talking about privilege can be challenging. But privilege impacts all our lives, whether we possess or lack it. We truly believe that learning to understand what privilege is and how to recognise it can really help make those potentially difficult conversations more balanced and helpful for all of us. With that in mind, we chose an animation style that’s pared back and simple, to carry the learning without getting in the way and create a productive learning journey that’s gentle and easy to follow.
We know that privilege can be a tricky concept to engage with. With that in mind, we’ve created some drag and drop and multiple-choice questions and placed them throughout the course, to really get you thinking about privilege and intersectionality as you move through the learning. We’ve also created a downloadable workbook that you can refer back to in your own time, so you can also consolidate your learning once the course is complete.
Everyone has the right to learn and learner need can vary demanding on environment or disabilities. This course comes with transcripts so people have text options for an media, subtitles for all videos and is screen reader friendly with alternative text.
