Abstract - Dominant social norms in the U. S. perpetuate sexism, nationalism, racism, patriarchy, heterosexism, classism, ethnocentrism, and ableism. Social norms are often learned indirectly because humans are evolutionarily wired to notice dominant social norms and abide by them. How can we mitigate the impact that dominant social norms have in our organizational spheres of influence? Understanding the diffuse and ubiquitous ways in which dominant social norms function assists those who aim to deconstruct dominant social norms. Additionally, that knowledge assists in the design, construction, an ... (continued)

This workshop will explore U.S. white cultural norms that create an inequitable status quo, privileging whites and the concept of whiteness, while disenfranchising people of color. We will address the often paralyzing inaction of people in response to racial inequities (DiAngelo, 2016), as academics are commonly immobilized by the prospect of saying or doing something that could be perceived as prejudicial or simply uninformed. We will identify and challenge the conflation of whiteness and power through exploration of whiteness and white privilege. Reflecting upon one's own white privilege can ... (continued)
