The Intersectional Analysis Training is a two-and-a-half day workshop designed to help participants understand the complex ways that various oppressions intersect and connect. Intersectionality is the study of how society empowers or disempowers people based on the way multiple social locations (race, class, gender, gender identity, etc.) interact. Learn more about intersectionality on our resources page.
