Engineering an intersectionality Lens for Equity and Inclusive Excellence

Individuals experience same situations differently because our social identities (both privileged and oppressed) shape our individual lived experiences. Intersectionality can help us better understand ourselves and others, cultivate compassion and trust, and build relationships across differences. In this discussion-based session, participants will explore the concept of intersectionality and interconnectedness of identity-based oppression(s). Through case studies and group discussion, participants will explore the application of intersectionality in teaching, student advising, administration, and workplace for inclusion and equity excellence.      

Open to UNH staff, faculty, and graduate students   (View the flyer)
