Empowerment Workshop for BIPoC* Students

For many BIPoC students living in Germany, that means for Black students and students of Color, racism is part of everyday life – even at university. Often, we are left alone with this feeling or even worse, those experiences are denied or not taken seriously. Rarely any university in Germany has official structures where students can turn to when racism happens.

With this Empowerment Workshop we want to create a safer space where we can talk and reflect about racism and empowerment. We will take a look at how experiencing racism affects our lives as well as understand the effects of structural racism. We also want to reflect strategies we use to deal with racism and talk about community solidarity and support.

The following questions are leading us through this day

- What is racism and empowerment?

- How can we develop strategies in dealing with racism?

- What are necessities of self care in our everyday life?

- What does Community and solidarity mean in the context of racism and empowerment?

*BIPoC stands for Black, Indigenous and People of Color which invites students who experience racism in Germany

Trainer: Jinan Dib (she/her) is a sociolinguist and works as a political educator, an empowerment and antiracism trainer with both adults and young people.
