Now that we’ve covered analysing data through an intersectional lens, let’s look at how we can use those findings to design policies and programs that support all staff and students.

In this session, we’ll ask our panellists how they took an intersectional approach to:

  • ensure culturally safe learning for Muslim students on clinical placements
  • diversify the curriculum in the School of Media and Communications
  • create an academic promotions process that is equitable for Indigenous staff

Through these case studies, you’ll hear examples of actions that were designed with intersectionality in mind and get firsthand, practical advice from the people who implemented them.
