  • Privilege and Oppression: Knowledge, awareness, and understanding of the impacts of privilege and oppression at personal, community, and systemic levels.

"It is a privilege to be able to take two days of time out of day-to-day work and dive deeply into the world of EDI. The training re-grounded me in the systems of privilege and oppression that impact the communities I live and work in and gave me new tools for addressing those issues in my work & personal life."
