About the Event
To celebrate the International Women’s Day and promote a world that values differences, we offer a workshop on intersectionality. Sponsored by the APWiL Mentoring Program and held in partnership with Keio University and The University of Melbourne, it will provide new perspectives and resources to approach advancing gender equity, diversity and inclusion. After listening to a brief overview, participants will engage in the Intersectionality Walk. The program was developed by SAGE (Science in Australia Gender Equity) to enable people to understand complexities of identity that can disadvantage people. By experiencing the intersectionality walk, participants learn how inequalities persist and how best to implement practical changes in their own institution by means of inclusion.
