Washington University Law School Intercession Program

Washington University Law School Intercession Program
  • Type Consultant
  • Role Diversity Facilitator
  • Client Washington University Law School

In 2012, Stephanie had the honor of leading an intercession program for 100+ first year law students covering the topic of diversity and inclusion. As the facilitator, she focused on a peer-facilitation model using a structured outline for the small group discussions. The Program topics and content intended to prompt students to think about the law as something that is not neutral but instead something that actively participates in and is a product of constructions of identity, privilege, and oppression.

Additional goals were to help students think more about their own identities and the institutions with which they interact, and encourage them to engage with these issues in a more meaningful way.
