First coined by Kimberlé Crenshaw in 1989, the term “intersectionality” aims to illuminate the converging causal factors underlying discrimination and inequality. Intersectional analysis on gender, for example, holds that gender cannot be understood in isolation from other identity categories of inequality such as race, class, and ethnicity, to name a few. In this session, we will discuss how the development of different STEM-related skillsets has helped individuals with marginalized identities push back against discrimination in the workplace and how it has opened new, non-traditional opportunities.
Join WIT DC, Alida Minkel, Data Analytics Manager at Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility, and a panel of women of color technologists for an open and honest discussion on how people of intersectional identities can be powered through STEM. In this conversation, we will discuss gender and racial diversity in our Salesforce ecosystem and learn more about how the development of Salesforce and other STEM skills has helped women of color make advancements in the technology industry.
