Reflection in Practice sessions are informal discussion spaces for participants in the Intersectionality Series.

It’s an opportunity to ask each other questions, exchange perspectives on the previous sessions’ content and workshop ideas for applying intersectionality in your organisation’s gender equity, diversity and inclusion work.

In this Reflection in Practice session, we’ll reflect on the questions that we tried to answer in Session 3: Ethical demographic data collection:

  • How do we co-design demographic questions and response options, and avoid deficit indicators?
  • What are the limitations of HR data (as opposed to anonymous surveys, for example) as a means of measuring diversity?
  • Who gets to see these data, in what form, and for what purpose?


Monday 10 October 2022, 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm AEDT

This session will not be recorded.


Online via Zoom

Preparing for the session

To get the most out of this session, we recommend that you attend Session 3: Ethical demographic data collection or watch the recording, if you can’t make it on the day.

You can also use the Individual Learning Plan [DOCX 324 kB] to help you reflect on each session and think of questions or ideas to explore with fellow participants.
