Identity, Power and Privilege

Wednesday, February 10 | 1:00pm - 3:00pm EST
Facilitator: Sheliza Jamal
Partners: ArtsBuild Ontario, Kingston Arts Council and North York Arts

This session will cover the role of power dynamics in our everyday interactions. Through the lens of intersectionality, we will examine systems and structures of power and how they are connecting to our identity. Participants will examine the role of power dynamics in the workplace and what policies, procedures or programs could be implemented to shift the work culture. Through a “calling-in” approach, participants will be able to understand the way in which power and privilege can be leveraged to create change in arts-based organizations.

Examining Unconcious Bias

Wednesday, February 17 | 1:00pm - 3:00pm EST
Facilitator: Sheliza Jamal
Partners: ArtsBuild Ontario, Kingston Arts Council and North York Arts

In this interactive session, participants will gain common vocabulary around equity and inclusion to serve as a primer on the topic of unconscious bias. They will develop an understanding of unconscious bias; what it is, how it manifests, and its impact on employees, leadership and on the communities you serve. Through instruction, activities and examples, participants will gain a deeper sense of the implications that bias and microaggressions have on the work culture of arts-based organizations.
