Privilege, Power, Racism and Other Biases – Awareness & Action Steps
Scott Bass

Friday, 11:00am, | Bridge

This interactive workshop invites participants to increase their awareness and identify action steps relevant to privilege, power, racism and other biases. The presenter(s) draw on personal and professional experience in applying a “grief lens” to the process of waking up to privilege, power and bias. That process has much in common with what is popularly known as stages or tasks of grieving, mourning and healing. The presenter(s) use their own journeys of coming to terms with privilege, power and bias, with a focus on gender and racial bias, and invite participants to consider their own journeys and next steps.

Scott Bass grew up in rural, southeastern North Carolina when schools in the region were desegregating – and churches were not. Messages from home, school and church about how to interact across lines of race were confusing. Racial tensions and inequities were commonplace.

Scott is now a family therapist living and working in Raleigh, North Carolina. He also offers spiritual direction, coaching, workshops, retreats and consulting. Current projects include working with a non-profit to increase inclusivity and working with a faith community to nurture meaningful communication about racial and political differences. Scott also works as Director of Victim Services for the nonprofit North Carolina Victim Assistance Network. He is married to Marcelle Clowes. They have 15-year-old twin humans and two cats.
