Today’s version of diversity covers, among many other things: gender, race, age, disability, sexual orientation, religion, and veteran status. Everyone fits nicely into these groups. According to statistical reports, people fit into only one of these categories at a time. We compare men to women, white people to people of color, and cis gender and straight to LGBTQ. What happens when people identify with more than one of these groups? Business leaders have traditionally assumed that every person who identifies with one of these groups experiences the world and workplace similarly. However, people are complex and rarely identify with only one group. It’s time to expand our definition of diversity and get back to its roots: uniqueness and individuality. It’s time to talk about intersectionality. Join us for a special presentation to celebrate diversity and recognize the hidden figures of intersectionality.
In this presentation you will get a better understanding of intersectionality, take a look at the experiences of people from intersectional backgrounds, recognize your own intersectional identity, and discover ways to incorporate intersectionality in your diversity and inclusion efforts to effectively retain and develop intersectional employees.
