🎆 EQUITABLE CHANGE = 2023 Reflection + 2024 Guidance 🎆
Before folks take off for their winter and end of the year celebrations I offer these words for 2023 DEI self reflection.
🥇 “Equitable change is never easy nor convenient for those with privilege and power, even when it is the right thing to do.” - Kelsi Ju she/her
This sentence has taken me 14 months to word smith because it is a governing principle in my DEI work and personal life.
Despite being an intersectional identity and often the target of multi-layered discrimination, I still have a lot of privilege and power.
I am able bodied. I speak English. I have USA citizenship. I am educated. I am middle class and I am blessed to have financial and housing stability.
💪 How can I better leverage my privilege next year to ally with intersectional non-dominant group members who have been erased by American society?
What old discriminatory practices will I 🗣 break up with and what new equitable behaviors will I adopt to earn my 👥 allyship?
