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.
