Social Location of the Instructor

Consistent with a striving for multicultural competence, this instructor acknowledges that her lens is that of a cisgender, white, Christian, Eurocentric, able bodied, economically privileged, heterosexual, female-identified, middle-aged, person who has lived with all of the privileges, both earned and unearned, as well as aspects of marginalization that come with my social location. I am a wife, daughter, sister, licensed mental health counselor, educator, sexologist, person of faith, liberal/leftist, and activist. I have no natural children. The following presentation reflects my social location. I will make mistakes. I will commit microaggressions and acts of exclusion. I ask that you please hold me accountable for those. Please, if your voice or story is not included in a way that you wish to verbalize, I welcome you to call this to my attention and in advance I ask for your pardon.

Many of the slides are set up with a North American (USA in particular) context. Please add international examples if you have them to share as it will only enrich our learning.
