Bringing Our Whole Selves to the Table: Exploring Intersectionality

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How we view our own gender and those of our loved ones is influenced by all aspects of our identity including our family histories, race, religion, ethnicity, and the communities with which we identify. Panelists in this workshop will discuss how their multi-faceted identities relate to their experience of gender. They will share where they found support and opportunities for growth as well as how they navigated resistance and roadblocks. Participants will have an opportunity to reflect on their own identities and engage in a dialogue with panelists and other attendees.
