Description

This workshop provides participants the opportunity to actively contribute to understanding and educating others in why intersectionality is important for innovative organisations. What do we mean when we say intersectionality? Do siloed approaches to different identity categories limit capability in overcoming real-world barriers? How do we create inclusive environments? How do we know we are moving forward? What evidence and data assists in this space? This is an action-based workshop with outcomes that participants can take back to their home organisation. It also provides cross-institutional opportunities for collaborative research recommendations on this important topic. Bring your feet, and be ready to walk!
