As health professionals we can often find ourselves in the role of gatekeeper, holding knowledge of access and resources. It's a tricky role to navigate, but when we practice "power with" versus "power over" we find that being the authority figure isn't so bad! In this workshop participants will 1) discuss how we've been systematically taught to hold power over while 2) exploring what it means to have "power with" community.
