Understanding Intersectionality (Diversity Index # 4825)

Thu. Mar 4, 2021 2:00pm - 3:00pm
Online (Zoom)

The term "intersectionality," coined by Prof. Kimberle Crenshaw, refers to the acknowledgement of how each person's individual characteristics -- race, gender identity, sexuality, religion, and so on -- overlap to create systems of disadvantage or discrimination. In doing anti-racist work, using an intersectionality framework is crucial to identifying and understanding individuals' unique challenges. If we truly want our students and coworkers to bring their full selves to HCC, then we must understand and embrace an intersectional approach.
