StarPower: The Intersections of Power, Privilege, and Leadership

Description: StarPower is a simulation exercise that engages participants through competition and collaboration. Diversity training takes on a new feel with this fun game. Participants will compete over the course of three rounds to achieve the best possible individual score that they can while still working as a member of a team. The simulation aims to allow participants to examine how their own personal styles impact interpersonal and group dynamics and what happens as they work to advance both their own scores and their group's as well. StarPower examines a number of different dynamics that impact workplace civility, equity, and inclusion while giving participants a chance to have fun and compete in casual atmosphere.


  • Examine how personal interests impact group dynamics
  • Explore factors that motivate or challenge individuals and groups
  • Apply concepts demonstrated during the simulation to real-life workplace interactions
