This Class Not to be Missed

Classism Workshops at Smith Oct. 30 and Nov. 20, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Human Resources, Staff Council and Institutional Diversity have come together to present two thought-provoking workshops in which staff and faculty will have theopportunity to break the silence surrounding issues of class and classism at Smith College.

The purpose of these workshops is to better understand classism in our personal lives and to surface how class operates in the workplace. We will explore how position and rank at Smith, as well as our individual class backgrounds, play out and influence our work relationships. Naming and identifying class dynamics can assist both the college and individuals to better achieve their missions and their potential, which is the overarching goal for all employees of the college.

Workshops will be facilitated by Class Action, a nonprofit group that was recently recognized by the American Psychological Association for its groundbreaking work on classism.
