White privleged woman, giving back occasionally

AndreaAndrea Sigetich,
Bend, OR.

I know much about privilege, having done diversity work in major high technology corporations. The important word in my essay is “occasionally.” I give back, I do my share, I work for the betterment of life’s circumstances for those less privileged than me. However, I can go home to my nice home and full cupboards and take a breather any time I want. My privilege releases me from my sense of obligation sometimes, I am ashamed to say that, but it is true.

    I do not think I have ever heard anyone speak of white privileged women in the way you have. I am intrigued by the implications regarding the current discussions about race and gender in major corporations and the United States
    Interesting perspective.
