Power, Privilege and Racism in the Workplace – An online workshop for Racial Equity at Work
We are pleased to announce that we collaborated with Axis to develop and launch the Racial Equity workshop with the topic “Power, Privilege and Racism in the Workplace”.
What is Racial Equity?
We all hold different privileges within the society that cause us to see things differently. With privilege, power comes along – to some extent – and affects the way people interact in social institutions such as the workplace. For some, race may be an invisible dimension of their identities that impacts interactions with others, nonetheless. The question is, do we want to continue replicating systems that create barriers to racialised minorities in the workplace?
Generation 2.0 RED aims at raising awareness on the multidimensionality of racial inequalities in the workplace by shifting the conversation to the individual dynamics of power and privilege that further add on structural and institutional racism. The workshop focuses on acknowledging power and privilege on an individual level and working to prevent structures of oppression that are being recreated in the working environments, committing to being an anti-racist ally. The goal is to deepen the understanding of the subject and identify actions to foster equality in the workplace.
Axis is a digital collaboration tool that provides the ability to harness the power of collective intelligence, enable meaningful collaboration and measurable decision making. Axis believes every voice should be given the opportunity to be heard and every idea should have the liberation to be shared. Every meeting should have a purpose and always end with a plan. Its aim is to redefine the way teams collaborate, by providing a new approach to meetings where participants are able to anonymously share, ideate and evaluate inputs through a structured, digital facilitation process.
Generation 2.0 for Rights, Equality & Diversity has proudly collaborated with Axis in order to develop and launch the “Racial Equity” workshop under the topic “Power, Privilege and Racism in the Workplace” which can help you facilitate more inclusive, effective decision-making sessions and help tackle issues around Diversity & Inclusion, revolutionising the way your team works together.
The workshop is available to use through the Axis platform.

We recommend a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 30 participants per session. The workshop is suitable for everyone, however we recommend prioritising:
- Participants coming from different departments and hierarchies, as homogenous groups tend to have similar views
