Trainer for Diversity Skills
I am offering the following seminars: „Transcultural Awareness Training“ and „Let’s Talk about Racism! Anti-Racism and Decolonization“.
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!
