Privilege & Silence: Identifying & Dismantling White Supremacy | Workshop

Friday 25th of June

- 5pm 

Zandra Yeaman, University of Glasgow, The Hunterian


The current use of the terms ‘race’ and ‘racial’ have developed because these false notions of racial difference have become embedded in the beliefs and behaviours of society, especially in Western nations. These notions influence all areas of life in Scotland to some degree, from social attitudes to the way organisations are run, making inequalities for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people continue over generations. Most people now recognise that racist attitudes and language are unacceptable, so why does the ideologies of the previous centuries still impact on us today?

By the end of this workshop, participants will:

  • Explore the concepts of "white privilege" and "white supremacy
  • Be able to apply the concepts to look critically at organisational practice
