The White Privilege Symposium (WPS) of the Northwest was an evening followed by a full-day event designed to examine patterns, cultures, and systems that contribute to identity, power, and privilege. In examining and challenging concepts of privilege and oppression, WPS of the Northwest offered solutions and team-building strategies to work towards a more equitable world. The event was open to the public and invited diverse perspectives that provided a comprehensive look at issues of privilege, including race, gender, sexuality, class, disability, and other intersections of identity.
