In this session, we talk about the relationship between educational credentials, opportunity, and privilege. Minimum educational credentials often screen out otherwise qualified and capable candidates. We explore perceptions of elite education in different parts of the world, how they may intersect with our identity, and how these factors play out in our view of job candidates, our peers, our colleagues, and those who may or may not extend opportunity. We discuss the difference between the achievement gap and the opportunity gap and reflect on our background and how it shapes our lenses and perceptions of others.
All Ethos trainings include two co-facilitators and one producer to support a seamless experience and social identity representation.
