THE INTERSECTIONALITY NETWORK
Diverse supplier providing workshops and consultations on intersectionality, inclusion, and diversity to companies, higher education institutions, care homes, charities and organisations.
WHAT IS INTERSECTIONALITY?
Intersectionality is a term used to describe how various forms of discrimination and personal experiences can combine in a person's life. The Equality Act 2010 lists nine categories that are protected, such as: 'disability, race, gender identity, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy, maternity, religion or belief, sex, and sexual orientation'. These factors can overlap and occur simultaneously creating barriers and experiences for individuals.
WHY IS INTERSECTIONALITY IMPORTANT?
Intersectionality is important in the workplace and education environments because it recognises that individuals have multiple identities and experiences that shape their lives and that these identities cannot be understood separately from one another. This means that individuals face discrimination and marginalisation based on multiple aspects of their identities, such as disability, race, gender identity, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy, maternity, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation and lived experiences etc.
Employers, employees, including all other staff who understand and embrace intersectionality can create a more inclusive workplace or learning environment. That recognises, addresses and assists in overcoming the barriers/challenges of all employees or service users. This can lead to increased productivity, job satisfaction, increased learning engagement, and more importantly retention, as well as more inclusion and diversity.
WHAT IS INCLUSION?
Inclusion means equal opportunities for everyone in society.
