Let’s Talk About Intersectionality (and Privilege)

Identity. Privilege. Systemic Oppression. Intersectionality. These words have appeared more and more in popular discussions about society, justice, and fairness, but they often get used in different ways by different groups of people and it can get pretty confusing. This talk will give a quick overview and starting definitions of these concepts and use some examples to help illustrate the value of these concepts as tools. Some resources for learning more about these concepts and using them to help learn at home will be provided. Time at the end will be reserved for questions and answers.
