Group Career Chats: Navigating Oppressions in the Job Search (Arts & Humanities)

Career Center - Blue Room 2440 Bancroft Way, Berkeley

This in-person group career chat is a place to discuss a range of techniques one may use to navigate internalized oppressions in the job search. We will use kyriarchy as an intersectional model of oppression as a multi identity experience. Students who have one or more marginalized identities related to any of the following are invited to join: Race, gender, sexual orientation, low income, disability, neurodivergence, ancestral heritages that have survived (or not survived) colonization, students who are parents and undocumented students are welcome to join. We will take as fact that career culture and the job search in North America at this time is located within systems such as capitalism, colonization, white supremacy, ableism, neurotypicality and other oppressive systems. We will take some time to unpack typical career experiences that reflect and enforce these systems to gain awareness. We will work through students lived experience(s) and will address scenarios brought up by students (past scenarios and future fears and or realities are all welcome) We will specifically focus on internalized oppressions for this session. Affinity based resources will also be shared. Students should come prepared to discuss group agreements prior to any shared experiences (we will co-create these). Techniques will range from somatic exercises (available to students of varying ability), community building, understanding personal values, how to lean into identity specific mentorship and other resources as needed. About the facilitator: Lily Ritchie (Career Counselor) is a white, cis-gendered woman with an invisible disability from a first generation, low income background, who currently holds education and middle class privileges'. She currently serves as the Arts & Humanities liaison within the College of Letters and Science and serves as the Berkeley Career Engagement liaison to both the The Gender Equity Resource Center and the Queer Alliance Resource Center. Limited to 20 students.
