Sign up for the next class in the Foundations of Equity certificate program
The City Coordinator’s Equity and Inclusion team is now hosting the next series of the Foundations of Equity certificate program. The fourth class, “What is Marginalization? – Don’t Push Me ‘Cause I’m Close To the Edge,” will be held at 1 p.m. Sept. 12 in the Doty Board Room at the Minneapolis Central Library.
Learn why some people are included and others excluded from important workplace conversations and decisions, and why opinions of some people are seen as mattering more than those of others. Marginalization occurs when certain people or groups of people are pushed to the edge and considered of lesser importance. The needs and desires of the people within these groups are ignored. Marginalization of those within minority subgroups tends to negatively impact recruitment, retention and promotion of those within these groups.
