About this Event

With the world advancing towards unprecedented technological growth, it is extremely essential to be aware of the contemporary social issues and how it can change the way the world works.

The Black Lives Matter(BLM) movement has provided an impetus to the idea that social movements shouldn't be limited to traditional categories of identity.

Intersectionality has existed in the society for decades and now it is time to understand that overlapping racial and gender identities create new forms of discrimination which directly needs to be recognised and addressed. The analytical study of Intersectionality and social movements could help us challenge biases, achieve equality and celebrate each person irrespective of their social class, race, age and gender.

I am Paulette Watson from Academy Achievers and today we are going to talk about the way of uniting all oppressions on the theory of "Intersectionality".

In this talk, I will be discussing the concept behind Intersectionality and how it would be instrumental in building a more sensitive world that is free from biases.

We will kick off at 7:00 pm London Time on 12th August 2020.

The event will stream from zoom and a link will be provided once you have purchased your ticket.
