Thank you to all those who attended our event: What do We Mean by Intersectionality and Why Does it Matter?
We talked about everyday examples of intersectionality, what it looks like and how the intersection of their identities impacts people at work; the potential dangers of not taking an intersectional lens and opportunities for taking an intersectional lens for organisations and shared top tips for organisations wishing to take an intersectional approach to advance inclusion.
