The next instalment in our Springboard series of free online courses is delivered in collaboration with our partner Sub-Sahara Advisory Panel.
The Springboard courses will provide you with support to increase your organisation’s knowledge and improve its practices in project development and delivery. You will also be able to access resources and tools to support your growth.
Each course will require a time commitment of 20 hours over 8 weeks for you to get the most out of your learning. The course will be delivered through a mixture of self-learn workbooks and Hub Cymru Africa-hosted Zoom Meetings. With your peers and the Hub Cymru Africa team to support your learning, you will put your learning into practice by applying it to your own work. Partners in Wales and Africa are welcome to join. You will need stable access to the internet as the course is delivered through our website and in Zoom Meetings.
The Power and Privilege course will include:
- An overview of power within the global solidarity sector and the face of privilege within traditional aid and development by exploring its history and present legacy
- Power structures and the ways in which they intersect and amplify oppression as well as how this manifests within global solidarity sector
- Identifying positionality within intersecting power structures and how to confront these without hostility or disillusion
- Ways to cede power within partnerships and the ways in which individuals and groups can use their unique position of power and/or privilege to further sustainably strengthen work in global solidarity.
Finally, we will facilitate discussions to help develop action points, based on learning, specific to individuals’ and groups’ areas of work.
