Understanding Elitism

Social Identity
All Levels

In this session, we talk about the relationship between educational credentials, opportunity, and privilege. In many cases, minimum educational credentials screen out otherwise qualified and capable candidates. We explore our perceptions of elite education and 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 own background and the way it shapes our lenses and perceptions of others.

Learning Objectives

  • How education can manifest as a tool for dominance and oppression
  • How to reduce bias in our perceptions of others
  • How history is written (and by whom) and how it evolves
