The construct of intersectionality notes the premise that human experience is jointly shaped by multiple dimensions such as race, gender, education, or working style. Intersectionality is a theoretical framework wherein consideration of heterogeneity across different intersections of identity dimensions is integral to understanding health, social, and workplace experiences. Individuals cannot be adequately understood through a one-dimensional lens. To understand the worldview and the diverse experience of others, it is imperative to examine how intersectionality shapes and molds individual identity. Participants will: ● Understand the impact of various diversity dimensions and how they shape an individual’s worldview. ● Explore the role of privilege and oppression through an intersectional framework. ● Learn the ADDRESSING Model for conceptualizing human experience including the workplace experience. ● Complete an assessment to better understand intersectionality in the workplace.
