Developing the Anti-Oppression Lens …
Dimensions consulting supports advocacy and justice groups in meaningfully leveraging anti-oppression values in empowering people and communities, changing systems and navigating the daily work of social justice. At Dimensions Consulting we believe that the dynamics of power, privilege, oppression, and diversity and the ways that these dynamics affect individuals, communities, organizations, and social change agendas, matter. As consultants, we provide essential tools for building relationships that can support meaningful social justice work in the United States and around the globe.
At Dimensions Consulting we use Anti-Oppression as an adjective to describe the adoption of an active approach toward dismantling multiple systems of oppression simultaneously in our work while caring for our health and inner well-being as activists. Our consultation is meant to strengthen individual and collective abilities to reflect, discover, strategize and take action from an anti-oppression stance.
At Dimensions Consulting we understand that the work of identifying privilege, dismantling systems of oppression and growing equity in the world around us is ongoing. Dimension tools support activists in developing their capacities to be refreshed, resourced and strategically sustained over long-term work. Dimensions creates learning environments that are compassionate, meaningful, and practical, above all else. Our workshops facilitate the ability to develop both nuanced and “big picture” analyses of personal, interpersonal, systemic and cultural impacts within movement building. Participants are provided with skills and strategies for working from where they stand, while simultaneously being encouraged to seek reciprocity and the potential for shared understanding, shared goals, and shared work.
