Hierarchies All Around: Addressing Class, Socioeconomic Status, and Rank

Wednesday, May 03, 01:00 PM - Wednesday, May 03, 2023, 03:00 PM
Wednesday, May 03, 2023, 01:00 PM - 03:00 PM
Fee: $45 for MCN members / $65 for nonmembers
Our society and its institutions often mask the hierarchies that affect our lives. Whether based on social class, title/rank, access to financial resources, and/or education level, where you land in these hierarchies can have a profound impact on your opportunities, level of respect, and material conditions. This workshop helps organizations and institutions understand how social class and socioeconomic status can affect their clients, members, patients, students, and employees – and how they can work against unnecessary hierarchies, allowing them to function both more equitably and more effectively.
