Look around online and you'll see people from multiple marginalized groups reluctant to return to the office, even on a hybrid schedule, because of how the work culture affects their mental health. For organizations looking to foster a workplace culture of belonging, this means they not only need to adopt a broad DEI lens but to recognize how their employees can fall under multiple marginalized groups - in short, they need to embrace intersectionality.
Coined by activist and scholar, Kimbrelé Williams Crenshaw, the term "intersectionality" describes how interlocking systems of power affect those who are marginalized in society. While more organizations are talking about DEI than ever before, they aren't all consciously implementing behaviors to promote more diverse, equitable, and inclusive environments for all. The real work comes when we recognize intersectionality and tackle microaggressions in the workplace.
Join this enriching discussion with Dr. Damary Bonilla Rodriguez, seasoned DEI leader with over a decade of experience, to further the DEIB initiatives in your organization.
