Leading from the Intersections
We all have many layers to our identities and intersectionality is a way to understand how power and privilege impact the lives of people with diverse identities. To be an inclusive we need to ask critical questions like: How does understanding our own intersectional identity help us be a more inclusive? What are some best practices for working inclusively at the intersections of race, class, gender, sexuality, age, and (dis)ability? In this workshop we will explore how we can use an intersectional approach to better understand our own frames of references, how it may differ from others, and to become more culturally safe and responsive in our practice.

In this workshop we will break down the different elements that lead to memorable, informative and engaging presentations.
