Race, Power & Responsibility

A CCBD Course

About this Course

Institutionalized oppressive systems are structures that allow the policies and practices that support inequities. This course explores aspects of various social identities and the privileges and powers associated with each of them. Using the CCBD’s proprietary gamification learning system and digital app – Matrix of Intersectionality – you will learn to “unlock” interlocking systems of power to implement equity versus equality.
