Race, Equity & Action Speaker Series: Intersectionality in Equity, Inclusion and Belonging in the University
Speaker:
Prof. Hae Yeon Choo
Associate Professor, Department of Sociology
University of Toronto

Objectives:
Over the past 18 months, universities have been called to address systemic barriers present within academia, and many faculties and departments are striving to answer the call. Essential to this planning is the centering of intersectionality within systems change.

With this session, we are aiming to:

• Deepen understanding of the concept of intersectionality and how the intersection of oppressions manifest on an everyday basis in postsecondary environments.
• Discuss what it means to take action on the concept of intersectionality in a tangible way in Equity, Inclusion and Belonging work.
• Explore strategies that create opportunities to actualize the concept of intersectionality in systemic change work.

Time: 10:00 am - 11:30 am
