In 2017, Quakers in Britain began a sustained conversation about diversity and inclusion in our Quaker community. This workshop aims to support meetings who are beginning to have this important and challenging discussion. Led by two experienced facilitators, we will reflect on our own experience of inclusion and exclusion, and learn about some of the times when Quakers have failed to be a fully inclusive community. We will then explore the power that we do or don’t have, and learn about ‘intersectionality’ – how different forms of oppression interweave, and cannot be untangled from each other.’ We will end by reflecting on what next steps your Quaker community might take to become more inclusive.
This workshop is a general introduction to diversity and inclusion, and does not focus exclusively on any one aspect (such as race, age or class).
