Challenging privilege and the danger of the single story

This online workshop aims to deepen understanding of the barriers to equality, diversity and inclusion that exist in higher education through an examination of how majority group privilege reinforces structural and cultural inequalities. Using author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s concept of the single story as a means of exploring the limitations on our understanding of difference, participants will explore how privilege operates, the impact on different protected groups and what practical steps we can take to address inequality.
