Further expanding the reach of the White Privilege Conference domestically, in 2014. The Privilege Institute developed the White Privilege Symposium model. Symposiums typically take
place on a Friday night, and all day Saturday.


The Regional Symposium Model:

  • Allows a person without the time or resources, or with the desire to sample the WPC experience before attending the full conference, to attend the national conference a chance to experience WPC’s challenging approach to addressing issues related to white supremacy, white privilege and other forms of oppression.

  • Increases impact and capacity of the TPI brand as its annual conference continues to average 1700 – plus participants. TPI will organize three regional symposiums per year in collaboration with a regional host committee.

  • Offers regions the opportunity to explore what issues of power, privilege, and leadership look like specifically in their region.

  • Creates a local/regional, collaborative project that facilitates connections, networks, and inspiration that lives on far beyond the WPS- our social justice footprint.

  • Develop a follow up plan of action that moves community away from “Diversity and Inclusion” and towards comprehensively challenging white supremacy, white privilege, and other forms of oppression.

  • Raise funds for TPI to increase capacity and sustainability to further its mission in your region, nationally, and globally.
