GLBT Center Offers Internalized Oppression Workshop

Internalized oppression refers to the ways that individuals unconsciously learn, accept and reinforce ideas and attitudes that perpetuate inequity and oppression. This includes learned attitudes and actions related to internalized dominance and internalized subordination. This two-hour workshop is open to NC State undergraduates, graduate students, staff, faculty and alumni as well as interested members of the local community. The workshop will help participants learn to recognize the everyday, unchallenged assumptions we all make, to understand the impact of our assumptions on our own and others’ lived experiences and to increase our ability to interrupt these dominant narratives that serve to perpetuate inequity and oppression. The workshop will be held on Monday, October 2, 2017 from 3:00-5:00 p.m. in Talley Student Union, Room 3222.
