Progressive Stacking Order (PSO)
Progressive Stacking Order is a format that allows marginalized voices to be recognized and to speak first. Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) are the most marginalized people in America. Their voices are ignored in educational and professional settings, which are primarily white-dominant spaces.
Under this format, we decenter whiteness by using BIPOC as the order in which participants will speak: first Black folx, then Indigenous, then People of Color, and whites are last.
