This module introduces oppressive language and actions of power and privilege in the workplace and the larger community. We explore various assumptions and aggressions displayed in the business world and ways to combat them while attempting to shift attitudes toward equitable distribution of power. Breaking down oppressive power dynamics impacts all business practices. Addressing the need for a deeper understanding of bias, privilege, power dynamics, and the many aggressions influenced by such abuses of power is imperative to individual and collective growth in all aspects of business practices. Therefore, a defined understanding of how power dynamics show up internally and externally is imperative and strongly influences retention, customer experiences, and revenue.

OUTCOMES: Knowledge, Skills, Attitudes Acquired:

  • Knowledge of power, privilege, and bias language & actions
  • Understanding of oppression and its various levels: ideology, institutional, internalized, and interpersonal
  • Skills to shift power to minimize assumptions that lead to microaggressions
  • Attitude and understanding for equitable & inclusive power distribution and its impact in the business community
