Each of us has privilege of varying degrees based on our social groups. Privilege can be assigned based on race, ethnicity, gender, sex, physical activity levels, religion, wealth, and many other dimensions of diversity.
Our privilege allows for a societal advantage or comfort. Privilege does not minimize your personal efforts but provides additive social benefits that may be known or unknown to the beholder.
This webinar will focus on the recognition of:
- Personal privilege
- Privilege-based bias, and their impact on academic physical therapy
Panelists will discuss:
- Quantitative and qualitative evidence regarding the topics
- Their perspectives on the positive and negative impacts within the academic environment
Small group breakout sessions will allow participants to explore, reflect, and strategize how to recognize privilege and bias in academic physical therapy as the first step toward controlling its influence within professional training and practice.
Target audience: Faculty, academic administrators, directors of clinical education, clinical instructors.
