Intersectional Diversity: Facing Racism, Sexism, Biases, & Phobias

Course Description

Leadership requires an understanding of the intersectional nature of existence and diversity. Intersectionality is the complex, cumulative way in which the effects of multiple forms of discrimination combine or overlap as multiple sources of oppression. Intersectionality is the intersection of identities that shape an individual’s experience throughout their social context. For example, one’s sexual orientation does not exist apart from one’s gender or racial background. Moreover, an organization or community committed to LGBTQ equality advances toward its goal when it faces racism and sexism along with homophobia per their common roots.
