Understanding Intersectionality | Live Webinar

Live, virtual webinar | July 17, 2024 at 1 PM EST

 

Did you know that Professor Kimberlé Crenshaw introduced the concept of intersectionality in 1989? This powerful framework helps us understand how race, class, gender, and other personal characteristics intersect and compound challenges uniquely for individuals.
