Session 2: White Privilege 

Speaker: Robin DiAngelo, Ph.D.
Former Professor of Education; Author of What Does it Mean to be White?


"Racism is a system that encompasses economic, political, social, and cultural structures, actions, and beliefs that institutionalize and perpetuate an unequal distribution of resources between White people and People of Color. White people are the beneficiaries of this system of racial inequity, regardless of awareness or intentions.” —Robin DiAngelo
