The lens of intersectionality that guides our work sets us apart. This framework enables our team to understand problems relating to equity, diversity, and inclusion so they can be addressed and learned from. If you need help navigating EDI challenges and if intersectionality, empathy, and curiosity resonate with you, you've come to the right place.
The concept of Intersectionality was first established in 1989 by Professor Kimberlé Crenshaw as a framework to understand the oppression of African-American women. Twenty-eight years later, the concept further gained mainstream attention during the 2017 Women’s March on Washington DC. Intersectionality does not examine a single identity one may associate with, such as race or gender, in a vacuum. Rather, it highlights what happens when multiple identities (as we all associate with) collide and lead to unique forms of discrimination. Without this acknowledgement, movements such as LGBTQ+ rights, women's rights, Black Lives Matter, Stop-Asian-Hate, climate justice, and disability rights may appear to be disconnected when in fact they are intertwined.
We received such positive feedback [from your workshop] and I have a meeting with our HR team this morning to share/implement pieces of what you shared into our hiring process that we aren’t currently doing.
