Building An Inclusive Community: Intersectionality Of Race, Class, And Gender At Barry University
Intersectionality is defined as the interconnected nature of social categorizations such as race, class, and gender, regarded as creating overlapping and interdependent systems of discrimination or disadvantage. All students, faculty, and staff are invited to a discussion on the concepts of intersectionality and privilege, including how terminology can be used to include or exclude members of a community. Roundtable discussions will engage participants in conversations about how we can foster an inclusive community on campus through our language and actions.
This program will be facilitated by Dr. Laura Finley, Reverend Richard Clements, Genesis Lopez, and Michidael Ceard ’20.
Wednesday, March 13
Refreshments will be served
Born out of a commitment to collaborative service and learning, the purpose of the Mission Town Hall series is to offer members of the Barry University community an informal opportunity to share their experiences and understanding of the university’s mission and core commitments. Students, faculty, staff, and administrators are invited to listen to the experiences others in the community and how it relates to their lives on campus.
