People are multi-dimensional in their identities and may identify with several different marginalised or minority groups at the same time. These overlapping identities can result in multiple and intersecting forms of bias, discrimination and disadvantage, both in the workplace and in wider society.
Intersectionality provides a framework for considering our different identities and experiences in order to understand the complexity of biases and prejudices that people can face and take steps to address any resulting inequality or discrimination.
In this webinar, we drew on expert insight, ‘lived experience’ interviews and original drama to look at how an intersectional approach can support inclusion and help to achieve more equitable outcomes.
This webinar covered:
- what we mean by ‘intersectionality’
- how our intersecting identities can overlap to create privilege or disadvantage
- why taking an intersectional approach is key to more effective inclusion
- the importance of collecting and analysing data
- how to put an intersectional approach into practice.
We bring privilege in all kinds of ways. So it might be that we have the privilege that comes from being white in an organisation. It might come from the privilege that we have from our socio-economic status, from being middle class in an organisation. It might be the privilege we have from being male.Professor Binna Kandola OBESenior Partner, Pearn Kandola LLP
