an online conversation about bias, language, and power relations

About this event

Op 17 juni organiseert YOUth ACT een online gesprek over hoe we spreken - welke vooroordelen er in woorden zitten die wij gebruiken om dingen te benadrukken, hoe ons taalgebruik meer inclusief kan zijn, en hoe taal de concept van ongelijke machtsverhoudingen versterkt. Met This Is Gendered en Space to Talk About Race, nodigen we je uit om deel te nemen aan het gesprek, na te denken over je eigen ervaringen, en je gedachten te delen.

On June 17th, YOUth ACT will be hosting an online conversation about how we speak – what bias are hidden in the words and language we use to speak and think about things, how can our language be more inclusive, and how does language affect and reinforce unequal power relations. As we discuss racialized and gendered aspects of language and meaning-making with our panelists This Is Gendered and Space to Talk About Race, we invite you to join the conversation, reflect on your own experiences, and share your thoughts.

Organizer YOUth ACT

Organizer of How We Speak: The political aspects of everyday language

We provide our community members with personal and professional growth opportunities and create a space in which young people are empowered to take action through:

The Transformative Education Format, which provides our members with tools to deconstruct the cause of a social and/or environmental issue from critical, multidisciplinary perspectives. Specifically, we aim to provide a space for decolonial education, critical thinking and accountability.

The Starter Pack Format, which provides hands-on skills for young people who want to take action. We aim to strengthen young change makers capacities, for example through leadership, marketing, fundraising or impact assessment workshops.

The Pitch Night Format, which provides a link between young people and potential employers/initiatives. We aim to facilitate more equitable access to internship opportunities, volunteer work and board positions. Moreover, young talent from our network can assist in accelerating existing social initiatives/startups.
