Promoting Diversity and Social Justice: Educating People from Privileged Groups, Second Edition


Promoting Diversity and Social Justice: Educating People from Privileged Groups, Second Edition Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Promoting Diversity and Social Justice provides theories, perspectives, and strategies that are useful for working with adults from privileged groups those who are in a more powerful position in any given type of oppression. The thoroughly revised edition of this accessible and practical guide offers tools that allow educators to be more reflective and intentional in their work helping them to consider who they re working with, what they re doing, why they re doing it and how to educate more effectively.

New features include:

  • A new chapter, The Joy of Unlearning Privilege/Oppression, highlights specific ways people from privileged groups benefit from unlearning privilege/oppression and from creating greater equity.
  • A new chapter, Allies and Action, gives focus and guidance on how people from privileged groups can constructively and appropriately be involved in social change efforts.
  • Updated Appendix of additional resources.

The theories and approaches discussed can be applied to a range of situations and audiences. This book is an excellent resource for professors, diversity trainers, teachers in classrooms and workshops, counselors, organizers, student affairs personnel, community educators, advocates, group facilitators, and any others involved with educating about diversity and equity.

Book News Annotation:

Goodman, a consultant and counselor with a Doctorate of Education from Umass at Amherst, offers theoretical and practical perspectives for confronting and engaging people in privileged groups about their privilege. She does not, however, offer a how-to guide for these confrontations. Instead she examines how privilege arises, the way multiple identities mitigate privilege, the resistances to acknowledging privilege by the privileged, the various emotional/intellectual/spiritual costs that people pay for their privilege, and just why people from privileged groups take an interest in social justice issues and eliminating the dynamics of privilege. This second edition offers new chapters on unlearning privilege and how the efforts of privileged people can be constructively incorporated into social change movements.
