Thinking intersectionally can transform our understanding of the obstacles Black people face if they’re female, disabled, old, young, or a member of the LGBTQ! community.
It can shine a spotlight on the intersecting areas of discrimination faced by Black women.
But is all this talk of intersectionality really a way to avoid talking about core issues like racism?
Are some issues easier to talk about – making others easy to hide?
How do we address intersectionality without feeling that other issues have been diluted?
This provocative and interactive seminar will tackle these questions head on.
Internationally recognised diversity expert Dr Doyin Atewologun will unpack what ‘intersectionality’ really means and guide us through the fractious debate about its role in progressing equality.
This seminar will be useful to:
- People who have responsibility for promoting equality in organisations
- Community activists
- General equality nerds
