As you look to progress Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the workplace, understanding all the different identities each employee may have is vital. Join us as we explore Intersectionality, and how building a complete picture of each individual and their many identities is key to fostering a culture of belonging at work.

You’ll hear from actress and comedian Maysoon Zayid and
co-creator of the Netflix hit, Gentefied, Linda Yvette Chávez, as they explore the importance of intersectionality and give their advice on how you can create a workplace where people feel like they belong.
