Virtual One-day Ethics Training - Increasing Your Power Wisdom: Ethics through a Diversity Inclusive Lens

Share this on:

The course utilizes the Right Use of Power. In this training we will distinguish five kinds of power: personal power (our birthright and the power within), role power (additional power that is embedded in a position of authority), status power (unearned power that is culturally conferred), collective power (the increased power to influence accessed by a group), and systemic power (the strong and usually unnamed power of systems). In this course we are focusing on status power (unearned power that is culturally conferred). This kind of power is challenging and entrenched whether you have more status power or less status power although it is clearly intensely more harmful (both emotionally and physically) and completely unjust for people of down-status identities. We will also explore four other types of power: personal power (our birthright and the power within), role power (additional power that is embedded in a position of authority), collective power (the increased power to influence accessed by a group), and systemic power (the strong and usually unnamed power of systems).
