Cancelled: Understanding the Cycle of Socialization

Social Justice Education

Date and Time

Tuesday, March 10, 2020 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM


”Privileged groups use difference to maintain their privileged position while at the same time denying that any differences exist.” Participants will explore dominant narratives and their connection to creating and maintaining inequity. The Cycle of Socialization is a theory and resource created by Bobby Harro, which explains the ways in which individuals receive messages about social identity throughout their lives. In this workshop, facilitators will travel through the cycle; giving examples from their own lives. Participants will explore and reflect on messages received they have received throughout their lives. The goal of this workshop is for participants to gain an understanding of the differences between personal, cultural, and institutional messaging around social identities and systems, as well as allow them an opportunity to reflect on ways they have been socialized and identify the lasting impact.
