Privilege and oppression are two sides of the same coin. Where systems exist that benefit one group, they create a barrier for others. This simulation tackles essential, but often uncomfortable conversations about the role of privilege in perpetuating power imbalances in our society and asks – what is it, who has it, and what can we do about it, if we want to create a more equitable society?
This module is part of our Let’s Talk About Race series.
Through this scenario, you will:
- Understand different types of privilege
- Reflect on how privilege affects your own life and the lives of others
- Explore the relationship between intersectionality and privilege
- Unwrap the myth of meritocracy
This simulation has been co-developed in collaboration with George Brown College.
