For all you parents who have spent the past month bragging about which college recently accepted your snowflake and dreaming about the career doors that will be opened up courtesy of an elite education and your $50,000 annual tuition checks, here is a dose of reality about what your student is actually about to be subjected to.
Kennesaw State University recently hosted a workshop for their snowflakes called “Being, Becoming, and Fostering Allies: Building Relationship Across Privilige.” The workshop, hosted by 3 psychology professors and a doctoral student, billed itself more or less as a crash course on relationship development.
Panelists will highlight the essential conceptual, relational, and emotional processes involved in ally development, using their long-standing relationships to illustrate key concepts and identify and model strategies for enacting ally intentions. Panelists will explore the ongoing process of developing and fostering allies and the challenges that emerge in these journeys. Presenters will discuss the essential roles of self-reflection, cultural humility action, and re-engagement after failures, as well as the qualities of relationships that facilitate ally development.
