    Intersectionality 101

    Join the Center for Diversity and Health Equity for a fast-paced, interactive workshop exploring what happens when complex cultural identities — your own and those of patients and families — collide in the healthcare setting.

    April Lewis and Carol French, cofounders of Figure 8 Consulting, have more than 20 years of experience in cultural agility, diversity and intercultural organizational development. Their presentation will help you:

    • Define intersectionality in the context of healthcare.
    • Examine the impact of intersectionality on health outcomes.
    • Explore the advantages and disadvantages of each person’s unique, multi-dimensional life experiences.

    A light brunch will be provided.
