Trainer for Diversity Skills
I am offering one seminar this semester:
Intercultural Awareness Training (en), Critical Whiteness and Anti-Racism Trainig (de) and Critical Whiteness and Anti-Racism Trainig (en)
Hello, I’m Kathrin. I’m a historian and historical consultant for the film & arts industry. Since 2014, I have been giving seminars in cultural, trans- and inter-cultural awareness, communication and competence. My working languages are German, English and Portuguese.
I believe that in order to draw on diversity, we need to acknowledge inequality.
I thus attempt a sensitization for (unconscious) racism, and national and racial privileges in my training sessions. I introduce ideas of critical whiteness and try to trigger our critical thinking with the analysis of current (media) events in regard to colonial legacies and cultural, political, historical, racial, social, gender, and class-based biases. Key tools are self-awareness and empathy.
Throughout varied projects I have lived and worked with multi-national teams in Germany, the Middle East, Nicaragua, Brazil, Cuba, the US, and South Africa and currently commute between Hamburg, Bremen and London. I’m looking forward to meeting you at PIASTA, here in my hometown Hamburg!
