LATE 2017: Invisible Privilege - Confronting entitlement
Many New Zealanders would characterise our country as fair and equitable. But it depends where you’re standing.
Power and privilege can be a confronting subject to discuss – the idea of society’s engrained biases and unfairly-wielded influence is hard to debate without accusation. This LATE explores the idea of power and privilege – what is it, who has it and what are the implications for New Zealand society – and looks at how we can discuss issues of identity, power and privilege without condemning groups of people.
Our panel will discuss the importance of owning our privilege – and the discomfort that comes with it – and using it to grow our awareness of inequality and call it out when we see it.
