February 2017 Gathering: Overcoming Privilege

Join us at Culture C-Street to sip coffee, make friends, & explore the topic of overcoming privilege

 

When a person is said to have privilege, it simply means they have been given certain benefits or rewards in societies or communities through no effort of their own. 

 

At our February gathering, we will be talking about privilege: what it means to have it (or not), how we feel about it, and how not to let our feelings about it get in the way of taking positive personal and community action. So often, learning that our success or favor is based not on our hard work, but on our social class, gender, or appearance leads to feelings of guilt or the idea that we don't deserve what we have. So let's talk about it - privilege, lack of privilege, luck, hard work, and how to get over it all.

You'll hear from the following speakers:

STEPH JAGGER splits her time between Southern California and British Columbia where she dreams big dreams, writes her heart out, and runs and executive & life coaching practice. She holds a CEC (certified Executive Coach) degree from Royal Roads University and she believes courageous living doesn't happen with one toe dangling in, but that we jump in, fully submerge, and sit in the juice. Think Pickle, not cucumber. She is the author of the soon-to-be-released book Unbound*

KATE ALSUP is a pastor, speaker, blogger, and intentional lifestyle advocate. She believes in using critical thinking, education, and research to help ourselves find the mindsets and thought processes that encourage meaningful and fully present living. Kate blogs about adoption, psychology, and faith. She also focuses on building a lifestyle based on living the gospel, family, and ethical and sustainable consumption.
