Online via Zoom

Workshop link and handouts will be emailed the day before. The presenter requests participants keep their cameras on during the presentation to ensure optimum engagement.

Intersectionality is a fact of life for each of us. A term coined more than 30 years ago by legal scholar Kimberlé Crenshaw; Intersectionality suggests that different facets of our identities, from age to race, gender, disability, citizenship, socioeconomic to sexuality, all intersect and help shape our experience of the world and the opportunities and/or the discrimination we face.

Join us to explore intersectionality and our role in creating a more equitable and inclusive personal and professional community. We will critically examine how the notion of diversity, equity and inclusion impacts the older adults we serve, our community and ourselves, allowing us to gain higher culturally competent services and outcomes for those we serve.

Participants will be able to:

  • Define intersectionality.
  • Discuss the importance of understanding intersectionality and how it impacts older adults.
  • Develop a deeper appreciation of how bias impacts everything we do relative to competent service-based engagement.
  • Explore principles of intersectionality to create positive personal and professional engagement opportunities and outcomes.
