Podcast Episode: Exploring the “invisible knapsack” concept developed by Peggy McIntosh to understand privilege and power in the context of health and diversity. Featuring Christina Jimenez, PhD.
Christina Jimenez, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor at the University of Colorado, and an expert in the processes of privilege that can both limit and promote opportunities for individuals, dependent on factors such as race, ethnicity, gender and class. Building on dynamics articulated by Peggy McIntosh in her seminal publication “White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack”, Dr Jimenez discusses how most of the inequities we see in healthcare and wider society are structural and systemic, which means they are built-in, and automatically benefit certain groups. Fostering sensitivity to the power balance between “normative identities” and “others” is essential to inclusivity and minority empowerment. With Bonnie Simpson Mason.
