Advanced Trainings

Advanced trainings generally presume the audience is capable of applying issues of privilege and oppression to their own, and others’, personal experiences. They understand intersectionality in how it relates to individual identities, if not institutional oppression. They have committed to allyship, or are, at least, familiar with what actions they should take as an ally. However, these trainings have no prerequisites unless specifically mentioned.

Advanced trainings provides for direct application into one’s field and the workplace (both within and outside of higher education). It shifts focus from the individual to a macro understanding of institutional intersections of oppression.
