October 2021 Meeting
DISCOVER WHY INTERSECTIONALITY IS A GOAL
ACROSS ALL AAUW ACTIVITIES
Monday, October 18 7:00 pm
One of the key goals for AAUW’s updated strategic plan is to embody the goals and spirit of inclusion, diversity and intersectionality across all AAUW activities and participants. So, what is intersectionality, and how do we embody intersectionality? Good question(s)!
Join us for the October branch meeting where Kayt Sunwood will provide an engaging exploration of intersectionality, focusing on why embodying intersectionality is important for AAUW, and the world. Kayt will share some short clips from Kimberlé Crenshaw (who coined the term intersectionality) as well as resources to facilitate our embodiment of the spirit of inclusion, diversity, and intersectionality.
