2017 NCWIT Summit - “Intersectionality: How Can We Address Multiple Identities and Biases at Once?” WA/EA Workshop by Catherine Ashcraft and Brenda J. Allen
What exactly is intersectionality? And, how might it help us challenge common misperceptions about diversity and inclusion? How can we improve ERGs, leadership and talent development programs, male (or majority group) ally efforts, and other diversity and inclusion initiatives? We will consider the benefits of approaches and initiatives focused on a single group (e.g., Women, Black, or LGBTQ affinity groups), the limitations of such approaches, and the benefits of more intersectional or holistic approaches (those that make connections across groups).
