Understanding Intersectionality

Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives are an important part of a healthy work environment. But DEI values only scratch the surface of this critical area—particularly since many people belong to more than one marginalized social group, including race, gender, sexuality, age, ability, and socioeconomic status, to name just a few. To truly understand the unique experience of the people you work with requires taking a deeper look, and this is where intersectionality comes in. Intersectionality is one of the more important topics in DEI, and in this course, GET PHLUID trainer and DEI expert Cory Wade explains the significance of intersectionality and how it manifests in professional settings. Join Cory as they illustrate how you can use intersectionality to promote equality in the workplace, covering topics like becoming intersectionality conscious, recognizing privilege and inequity, being an effective ally, promoting the incentives of intersectionality, and more.
