The Green Bay Film Festival will be showing the film titled “Intimate Battles” at the YWCA. It is the story of five women from different countries who were victims of domestic violence and their struggle to face and survive it. This complex and extensive problem will be approached attempting to transcend typical and stereotyped ways. Tickets are available at the door, $7 adults, $5 students, $2 children 12 and under.

This event is a disarming way to get talking about tough realities during our monthly lunch and learn. During this courageous conversation titled “A date with Othering,” individuals who have been marginalized because of a group identity will travel around the room and share reflections related to experiences that shouted “You don’t belong in Green Bay!” Community members will hear brief reflections of these experiences and have time to ask questions at the end of the speed-dating styled exchanges. After the rounds of sharing there will be a brief discussion of similarities between the othered individuals’ experiences–we will be learning and growing together.
What exactly is “Othering?”
We are defining “othering” as a set of dynamics, processes, and structures that engender marginality and persistent inequality across any of the full range of human differences based on group identities. While not entirely universal, the core mechanisms that engender marginality are largely similar across contexts. Dimensions of othering include, but are not limited to, religion, sex, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status (class), disability, sexual orientation, and skin tone. Although the axes of difference that undergird these expressions of othering vary considerably and are deeply contextual, they contain a similar set of underlying dynamics. Othering is a term that not only encompasses the many expressions of prejudice on the basis of group identities, but it tends to provide a clarifying frame that reveals a set of common processes and conditions that propagate group-based inequality and marginality. Although particular expressions of othering, such as racism or ethnocentrism, are often well recognized and richly studied, this broader phenomenon is inadequately recognized as such.

The YWCA Greater Green Bay is partnering with the African American Dairy Professionals (AADP), a Schreiber Foods Business Resource Group, to bring you a mini-conference addressing diversity, inclusion, and retention as the capstone to their Black History Month programming. This half-day event is planned with businesses in mind and will provide attendees with data from the Bay Area Community Council’s 2018 Greater Green Bay: Envisioning the Future Report to the Community; exposure to experts in fields central to diversity, inclusion, and retention; and the opportunity to be a part of the YWCA’s dedication to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all. If your business needs support keeping up with the needs of Green Bay’s changing demographics, you will not want to miss this free event.
This event is free, however, we request that reservations are made to save your spot. Lunch will be provided to all pre-registered attendees. Please click on the “REGISTER” button.
The doors will open at 7:30 a.m. on the day of the event.
