Career Recharge: Understanding Intersectionality in the Workplace

2022-04-05
Unpack what it means to have intersecting identities and the experiences individuals & organizations face with compounding marginalization.

Join Career Recharge as we unpack the concept of intersectionality – what it means to have intersecting identities and the experiences individuals and organizations face with compounding marginalization.

In this session, we will:

  • define identity, intersectionality, power and advantages
  • help you identify your own intersecting identities and how those identities manifest in your work
  • explore how to examine problems in the workplace through an intersectional lens

This session is led by Cory Coletta, Manager, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion at Seneca. Together, we will explore how to examine workplace processes, practices, policies, structures and even products using a lens of intersectionality. This is the third workshop in our Diversity & Inclusion: Building Stronger Workplaces series.
