Promoting Diversity and Social Justice provides theories, perspectives, and strategies that are useful for working with
adults from privileged groups―those who are in a more powerful position in any given type of oppression. The thoroughly
revised edition of this accessible and practical guide offers tools that allow educators to be more reflective and
intentional in their work―helping them to consider who they’re working with, what they’re doing, why they’re doing it
and how to educate more effectively.
New features include:
* A new chapter, "The Joy of Unlearning Privilege/Oppression," highlights specific ways people from privileged groups
benefit from unlearning privilege/oppression and from creating greater equity.
* A new chapter, "Allies and Action," gives focus and guidance on how people from privileged groups can constructively
and appropriately be involved in social change efforts.
* Updated Appendix of additional resources.
The theories and approaches discussed can be applied to a range of situations and audiences. This book is an excellent
resource for professors, diversity trainers, teachers in classrooms and workshops, counselors, organizers, student
affairs personnel, community educators, advocates, group facilitators, and any others involved with educating about
diversity and equity.
