Diversity Beyond the Checkbox

What is a Virtual Privilege Walk?

Podcasts Sep 8, 2020

On August 27th, 2020, Jackie Ferguson, host of this podcast and TDM Head of Content & Programming, hosted a virtual privilege walk which had a huge impact on the over 150 attendees and the panelists as well.

On this episode, Jackie explains what a privilege walk is and we share a small sample of the experience from that day. Briefly, Jackie asked 41 questions based on privilege, and here we’re sharing just a few of those. After the walk, 4 panelists came on to talk about their privilege numbers and experiences with privilege throughout their lives. So if you’re listening to this, and you’d like to schedule a virtual walk for your company or team, be sure to contact us.
