Intersectionality, a term coined by Kimberlé Crenshaw, considers how systems of oppression disproportionately impact folks with intersecting, marginalized identities. Although cultural norms and demographics have shifted, Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) often remain underrepresented, inequitably compensated, and excluded in organizations. We need to close access, skills, leadership, and wage gaps and using an intersectional lens helps.
This panel will discuss why centering BIPOC through an intersectional lens matters, and provide practical takeaways to help you take meaningful action. In the session, attendees can expect the following key takeaways:
An understanding of intersectionality within and across various dimensions of identity and how to apply this lens to your work. Dimensions of identity may include, but are not limited to, race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, processing style, neurodiversity, class, education, and age.
Key strategies to consider with your team that support workforce development and innovation through an equitable, inclusive lens.
Resource recommendations (books, podcasts, etc.) to support your personal growth and development.
