OT224: Moving Beyond Women in Technology: Intersectionality and Workplace D&I

10/06/2017
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
OCCC W224H

Objective: Guidance
Audience Level: Student/Early Career
Session Type: Panel

Oftentimes, diversity is synonymous with hiring/retaining more women -- particularly cis-women of the majority racial group (i.e. white in the US). This framing leaves out LGBTQ+ and ethno-racial underrepresentation, the challenges of age, class, religion, and ability discrimination. This panel takes on the traditional framing of D&I and lays out a framework for a more intersectional approach -- one that takes into account multiple, intersecting, and compound identities.
