Who me? Power, privilege and oppression in health care

Speaker: Stephanie Nixon

WE ARE PLEASED TO INVITE YOU to this exciting learning and
networking event! Those of us working in health are often drawn
to the field because of commitment to social justice and rightin g
wrongs faced by historically marginalized groups. However, efforts
frequently focus on the disadvantages of being oppressed, while
ignoring the benefits of privilege. Furthermore, dialogue is often
silent on how the same forces that marginalize some also serve
to give unearned advantage to others. In this talk, we will work
together with kindness, humour and introspection to bring privilege
out of the shadows, and reflect on the power of this insight for
improving health equity.
