IDP is offering the Transforming White Privilege program to better understand the root causes of racial inequities, and ways we can create a racially just society.

The Transforming White Privilege (TWP) curriculum is designed to help our community to better identify, talk about and intervene to address white privilege and its consequences. Led by IDP Board Chairman and teacher, Renee Bochman, program will include:

  • Understanding how white privilege operates and is maintained within a system of inequity

  • How “whiteness” itself was created

  • Ways in which specific history, culture, laws and policies, economics and power helped to create and maintain a set of accumulated advantages for groups labeled “white” and a set of accumulating disadvantages for groups not considered “white” at various points in U.S. history

  • Processes for going within and for reaching across the group to build confidence and tap into the group’s individual and collective strengths, and ways to act for racial justice

TWP is a joint project of The Center for Assessment and Policy Development (CAPD), MP Associates and World Trust Educational Services, funded by The W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
