Description

Intersectionality has become a promising analytic framework for uncovering structural forces of oppression and how they impact multiple marginalized communities. Although intersectionality has been taken up across disciplines for its relevance to social justice practices, the framework is often commodified as a way to acquiesce to whiteness and privileged groups. Nonetheless, it is a vital framework that sustains well-being for multiple marginalized communities and examines intersecting forces of oppression, such as LGBTQIA+ BIPOC. The presenters will elaborate on tenets of intersectionality theory, indicate how forces of oppression impact the wellness of LGBTQIA+ communities and explicate strategies that underscore intersectionality with counseling practices.
