In a world where privilege exists in various forms — race, gender, socio-economic status and countless other factors — it’s essential to understand the dynamics to allow us to harness it as a catalyst for positive change. In this Education & Action Series presentation, attendees will learn about the intricate layers of privilege, uncovering unearned advantages and how to channel this for the greater good. This enlightening session promises to be both informative and transformative.
Our speaker, Stacey Shinn, serves as the Nevada State Director for State Innovation Exchange (SiX). Prior to SiX, she spent eight years as a lobbyist in Carson City working to advance social, environmental and economic justice policies. Stacey also worked as a counselor in the mental health arena and taught English abroad. She holds a master’s in social work from the University of Nevada and proudly serves as a supervisor for future macro social workers. Stacey is a member of the board of the Human Service Network and a Commissioner on the Access to Justice Commission. She resides in Reno with her cat, Cream Cheese.
Why lean away from conversations around privilege, when we can lean on each other in a safe space? Join us and learn and help pave the way for a more equitable future for all!
