PWN Amsterdam: The Importance of Intersectional Allyship
01 October 2020
19:00 CET - 20:30 CET
Online via Zoom
"Intersectionality is a theoretical framework for understanding how aspects of a person's social and political identities (e.g., gender, sex, race, class, sexuality, religion, disability, physical appearance, height, etc.) combines to create unique modes of discrimination and privilege." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intersectionality
The advancement of women in the workplace depends on every woman rising — regardless of background, ethnicity or ability. But women of color earn less than non-minority counterparts. Women of color in particular, often gamble their personal safety and careers to come forward when they’re on the receiving end of racist and sexist behavior at work. So, how can we all be better allies for one another, in our shared cause of true gender equality?
In this workshop, you will walk away with:
- Why women are poised to lead the DEI conversation in companies and in business
- Awareness of the systemic issues that affect women of color & the importance of allyship
- Daily micro-actions to be an intersectional ally for ALL women — even those who don't look, love or live like you
