This resource has 6 primary sections. Each section consists of approximately 3-10 minute videos and discussion questions pertaining to those videos. Tips for facilitating the discussion can be found in the speaker notes for each slide with discussion questions.
The sections Preparing for Discussion and Identity & Intersectionality: An Introduction establish norms for the subsequent discussions and introduce key concepts that are built on in later sections.
Each of the subsequent Gender, Sex, & Sexuality, Disability & Neurodiversity, and Race & Ethnicity sections begin with personal stories from individuals about the impact of their identities on their experiences. Additional videos broaden the scope of the discussion by introducing vocabulary, historical context, and systemic issues, among other topics. The concepts discussed increase in complexity over subsequent sections.
The resource provides examples of intersectional identities and experiences throughout. The final section, Identity & Intersectionality: A Deeper Dive invites more nuanced discussion of the concept.
