White privilege is one of the best lenses to understand the power gradient that exists between the West and the rest of the world, and how this power differential is perpetuated in the post-colonial era. Across nine spheres – from business to the environment to sport and entertainment – white privilege is woven into the very fabric of global structures and societies. In each case, the objective remains the same: maintaining white Western economic superiority.
Chandran Nair, founder and CEO of Global Institute For Tomorrow, will lead this session inspired by his most recent book: Dismantling Global White Privilege: Equity for a Post-Western World. Nair who resides in Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur will discuss white privilege’s pervasive global reach and aims to create a new space for discourse on worldwide racial equality.
