Intersectionality, a term coined by lawyer and civil rights activist Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw, is the interconnected nature of social categorizations such as race, class, and gender as they apply to a given individual or group, which create overlapping and interdependent systems of discrimination or disadvantage. Join us as panelists discuss the following materials and suggestions for meaningful change.


  • What is intersectionality and what are some examples of it?
  • How has the legal industry addressed the intersectionality issues in the past and how can we shape the future?
  • Why are intersectional individuals in a unique position to raise consciousness surrounding the intersectionality issues in the workplace?
  • How can non-intersectional individuals be better allies so as to encourage more diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplaces?
