Intersectionality Wheel1. Leveraging Diversity and Intersectionality

Intersectionality informs inequities and can help facilitate a path towards social justice. The practice of intersectionality has also extended to policy makers, human rights advocates, researchers, and community organizers to provide a framework on conceptualizing and tackling complex issues. But what exactly is intersectionality? And how is intersectionality both similar and diametrically opposed to diversity?

This workshop is an introduction to the language of intersectionality, how it is distinct from other approaches to equity, and how it can be applied to research, policy development, teaching, advocacy, and social marketing.
