Intersectionality & Allyship

Note: At the end of this workshop, you will receive an official GSC sticker for completing this training/workshop.

What is intersectionality and allyship? Intersectionality, coined by Dr. Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw, is the theory that multiple identities intersect to create a whole that is different from the component identities, which relates back to systems of discrimination. Being an ally is an ongoing process of unlearning, re-evaluating, and journey, and not an identity. Allyship is recognizing by whoever we choose to ally ourselves with. It is important that allyship is about creating platforms and spaces for those without privilege. You will learn about and practice identifying how multiple systems of oppression (including racism, ableism, classism, and sexism) overlap with gender and sexuality on our campus. In this interactive workshop, we will learn more about intersectionality and how it relates to be an ally.
