Acknowledging Privilege; A key to effective diversity and inclusion in teams



Sensitivity to issues of diversity and inclusion have never been more prevalent.

Examining how privilege manifests in today’s culturally-diverse world, this Masterclass looks at the concept of whiteness, how white people understand cultural differences, and how this affects everyday interactions.

Relevant to participants from all cultural backgrounds, this Masterclass led by Professor Peter Hawkins and Dr Judy Ryde provides a valuable opportunity to better understand what white privilege actually means and how even well-meaning white people may unconsciously project bias in their everyday lives. They introduce the White Awareness cycle as a useful developmental tool.

Finally, we apply the learning to the context of team coaching, both in our own being as a team coach, and the work we do with teams.

They will focus on 

  • What is privilege?
  • What are your privileges?
  • The White Awareness cycle
  • Three stages of diversity and inclusion
  • How you use these in team coaching
