Intersectionality Workshop: Beyond the Buzz
Come Join us on Saturday, May 20, 2017 for an interactive seminar from 1-3pm with one hour reception to follow @ City Gym KC.
How do you understand the concept of Intersectionality?
The term “Intersectionality” is the latest buzz in matters of Social Justice, a movement that has been 30 years in the making. Not simply a buzz, intersectionality is a lived experience within a framework.
How can you apply intersectionality to your life?
Bring your questions and learn:
- A brief history on intersectionality,
- How to discuss it among friends and colleagues, and
- How it can inform your day-to-day and life decisions.
This interactive seminar will show you ways to take deliberate daily action and how to live as a do’er of Intentional Justice™ Come to deepen your interest and expand your knowledge as a conscious connector.
This event is open to all who are interested in expanding their knowledge while embracing the actions you’ll be called to take as a result
Please join us at the reception to follow (beer and wine will be available) to further connect with fellow participants.
