Webinar: Identity and Intersectionality in the Workplace

When considering identity, especially the various identities that may or may not be represented within your organization, it's essential to recognize that everyone has multiple identities. Intersectionality is a term and concept coined to describe the interconnected and overlapping nature of social identities. In this webinar, SGO Co-Founder Felicia Jadczak will review various social identity groups, define intersectionality, and discuss how we can consider multiple and intersecting identities within the workplace.

Learning Goals:

  • Discuss what intersectionality is and how it applies to individuals within the workplace
  • Recognize how identity, privilege, and difference impact how we perceive others and how they perceive us
  • Reflect on individual intersectional identities
