Intersectional Equity; Intersectional Privilege 101
This workshop introduces participants to the concept of intersectional equity which explores how systemic inequities accord privilege and marginalisation to virtually all social identities. In this interactive and participant-driven workshop, attendees will improve their understanding of intersected identities and learn to leverage the aspects privilege held to dismantle systemic inequities and encourage authentic inclusion.
Participants will be able to discern the supra-narratives which contribute to systemic inequities. They will have a better understanding of the areas in which they hold more privilege than others as well as the areas in which they might hold less privilege. In addition, participants will be able to determine how they might use their aspects of privilege to create and support a more equitable environment for all social identities.
