Navigating Intersectionality with Baroness King of Bow

Wednesday 20 October 2021

The Department for Neurodegenerative Disease and the UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology (IoN) invites UCL Staff and Students to our Virtual EDI Launch Event. Join us for a thought-provoking conversation about intersectionality with special Guest Speaker Baroness Oona King of Bow.

 

Intersectionality refers to how people’s identities and social positions are shaped by not one but several interacting factors including but not limited to: gender identity, class, race and ethnicity, sexuality, disability, age, and religion. Understanding intersectional experiences may offer a better appreciation of barriers experienced by some individuals and inform effective positive action to address discrimination.

Who, What, When, Where?

Date: Wednesday 20th October 2021

Time: 4pm BST
