Privilege and Identity

The below forms part of our ‘Privilege’ pathway in our Inclusion Works programme. In this pathway, you’ll get to understand how advantages and disadvantages can create invisible barriers and unfair outcomes.

We address why it’s hard to talk about privilege and distill the concept of it with everyday examples to help you navigate the effects of privilege around you. By understanding how it works and why it’s so important to acknowledge, we can use our privileges to create fairer, more equitable outcomes for everyone.

We’d love to hear your take. Let us know what you think by getting in touch with us here.


Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.
