Diversity & Inclusion in the Workplace: Intersectionality & Privilege
March 29 @ 13:00 - 15:00
Diversity and inclusion in the workplace is imperative for a sustainable, competitive and innovative company and society at large. Diversity also goes beyond the outward perception of a company – it includes how the internal structures work and signal the value systems of an organization’s management or leadership team.
This series is designed by Diversify to centre Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace. We look forward to seeing you!
In March, Diversify and HerSpace are partnering with Develop Diverse for the Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace session.
Chisom Udeze, founder of Diversify and HerSpace, and Jenifer Clausell-Tormos, founder of Develop Diverse, will take on the topic of Intersectionality and Privilege in March.
Intersectionality is a term coined by Professor Kimberley Crenshaw. It is an analytical framework for understanding how a person’s social or political identity such as ethnicity, race, social class, gender identity, sexual orientation, and other facets of social stratification combine to create different modes of privilege and discrimination.
