Orbital Office Hours: Intersectionality and Diversity in the workplace
November 18, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm GMT
Join us as we sit down for an in-depth and very necessary discussion with Jennifer Stirrup, who will be sharing her learnings on intersectionality and diversity in the workplace. Intersectionality focuses on different elements of a person’s identity and how this can be discriminated against, which has negative outcomes for everybody. It focuses on interactions between characteristics such as the colour of skin, gender, disability, the weight of history, and so on. People are not one-dimensional and these can all interact to produce inequality. Until we discuss these issues, we cannot do anything positive to combat them. All these ways to be disadvantaged can interact with each other to produce even greater inequality in terms of pay, learning opportunities, mentoring opportunities, promotion and other things that data professionals care about.
This is a topic that is vital for workplace leaders and staff to understand and put into practice, we are learning all the time, so join us in a safe space to discuss intersectionality and diversity and get answers to any questions you have.
