This workshop will provide a detailed sociological overview of the process and resulting structure by which people become differentiated from one another and arranged in graded strata with varying degrees of privilege, such as social, psychological, and economic. Participants will learn about structural inequality and will be introduced to various understandings of prejudice and discrimination. The workshop will conclude with a discussion about how to begin fighting racial, gender, and class oppressions in a society that gives privileges to certain groups over others.

This is the final workshop in Virginia Tech Carilion's Fall 2015 Lunch and Learn series on diversity. Workshops will resume in the spring.

Lunch is provided. Registration required.
