Daily Nourishing Reflection #18: Privilege & Empowering those Further from Justice

Welcome to day #18 of the Intentionally Equitable Hospitality (IEH) series for May 2024! We hope you are having a nice weekend.

Daily Facilitation Tip: Want to Have Better Conversations? Consider Your Privilege

Today’s video is ‘A Straight White Dude’s Guide to Conversations’ and it’s by Nate Angell, one of the IEH organizers and facilitators. Nate here talks about privilege. He shares how he “sits on the throne of privilege” and how often people who sit on the throne of privilege don’t always help other people feel comfortable, included and engaged in meetings. So then he shares his tips from his POV of how he makes sure to be as inclusive and equitable when he is facilitating. Enjoy watching/listening!

Daily Activity: Reflect on your privilege and how you try to empower those further from justice

What kind of privilege do you have as a facilitator/participant? In what ways do you try to dismantle your own privilege in order to empower those who are further from justice?

As always, please make sure to post your reflections on the SPLOT so we can all see and engage with them as well.
