Presented by the Centre for Research on Inclusion at Work (CRIW)

What is intersectionality and how might you incorporate intersectional perspectives into your research?

In a time of growing awareness of the inequalities around us, it is important to consider the complex ways that aspects of one’s identity can affect the way people move through the world. Access to privilege, or experiences of marginalization, are affected by the intersections of multiple identities and an intersectional approach can shed light on the power dynamics at work.

We invite you to a conversation about intersectionality and intersectional research.

Specifically, we will be discussing:

  • how intersections of identity affect lived experiences;
  • what intersectional research looks like; and
  • how to incorporate intersectionality in your research.


  • Ms. Kat Lauch, PhD Student, Sprott School of Business, MA (Women’s and Gender Studies)
  • Dr. Rick Colbourne, Assistant Dean, Equity and Inclusive Communities, Sprott School of Business
  • Dr. Janet Siltanen, Professor Emerita, Department of Sociology and Anthropology


Faculty members, PhD and master’s students at any stage in their program interested in an intersectional approach to research.
