About the Event

It is human nature to view the world from your own perspective, we filter information differently depending on our own individual experiences, background, culture and beliefs (amongst other things).  However, this can sometimes cause us to label groups homogenously, make assumptions, get things wrong, believe and even say things that are actually, incorrect or even offensive.

In this session, a number of our own University of Chester students will tell their stories, representing different disabilities, races, religions, ages, genders, sexualities and in some cases intersectionalities of many of these characteristics.   You will hear about their experiences, both positive and negative, and their views of what we all need to do to make things better.  The event will conclude with a panel discussion from all the speakers based around audience Q&A.

Who is it for: This session will enable staff, students and visitors to consider whether they are stereotyping and making assumptions about others that could impact on their behaviour or decision making; consider how they can avoid inappropriate behaviour, comments, language or views and more importantly, feel able to challenge inappropriate behaviours, comments, language or views of others (known as being an ‘active bystander’)

What you will gain from attending: If you only attend one session in the festival, make this it! This session will broaden your understanding of every protected characteristic discrimination, help you consider the concept of privilege and will really enable you to see the world from a different angle.
