  • 1 Lessons
  • 6 Resources

Welcome to the GEPARD training on Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion! We are excited to embark on a transformative journey with you through the unit titled "An Intersectional Approach: Gender+." In this unit, we will delve into key concepts such as intersectionality, microaggression, and implicit bias, essential for understanding the complexities of diversity.

Our tour begins with an engaging presentation, where we will introduce the concept of intersectionality, exploring how various aspects of identity intersect to shape unique experiences. We will also delve into microaggressions and implicit biases, shedding light on subtle forms of discrimination and unconscious attitudes that impact behaviour.

To reinforce these concepts, we'll utilise online videos that provide real-world examples and perspectives. A Handout is provided, allowing you time for reflection and a deeper understanding of the material.

As a complementary resource, we encourage you to explore Chapter 9, "The Value of Diversity," specifically the section on "Diversity and Intersectionality" in GEPARD Intellectual Output 2, "Towards Gender Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion: A Methodological Guide." This chapter serves as a valuable reference, enhancing your knowledge and enriching your learning experience.
