Approach: This workshop uses kindness, humour and critical reflection to explore ideas of privilege and oppression and their impact on health. Instructor Stephanie Nixon will draw on examples from pop culture and everyday life to deepen understanding. Through a collaborative learning approach, the workshop will enable participants to build connections with others who are interested in developing awareness of privilege and allyship within the context of health.
Format: This course includes online pre-and post-course learning, and a full-day interactive on-site workshop. Privilege 101 is particularly designed for clinicians, health profession educators, health researchers, and people working in health policy. People from all stages of their career are welcome – from students to those in senior positions.
The course is offered by the Department of Physical Therapy and the International Centre for Disability and Rehabilitation at the University of Toronto
