Pennoni Panels: Authentic Activism or Woke Washing?

Thursday, November 11, 2021

3:30 PM-5:00 PM

Activism can be slippery, especially when money gets involved. Corporations sponsoring Pride floats allows for more visibility but can also dissuade from looking further into corporate policies and practices regarding LGBTQ employees. Brands have also made products in support of Black Lives Matter, the pay gap, and climate change. Some activists have even become celebrities and been criticized for capitalizing on their activism. What does authentic activism look like? Is it possible to push back against systems while being supported, in some fashion, by them? Is visibility worth potentially diluting the potency of the message? During this panel, we will address these tensions regarding activism and capitalism.
