Diversity, Inclusion, and Communication Tuesday April 16 1-2:30 pm Facilitator: Devin Moss, Director of LGBT Resource Center, Northwestern University REGISTER ONLINE Social justice is the pursuit of fairness and equity for populations, who are, currently and historically, marginalized, exploited, dis-empowered, or violated based on their social group membership. These manifestations of oppression are the pervasive existence of social inequality woven through social institutions as well as embedded within individual consciousness. The goal of this workshop is to help participants recognize and discuss concepts of power, oppression, and privilege in their everyday lives and the ways in which this shapes the interactions that take place in and around the classroom.
