Putting Intersectionality into Mentoring Practice
About This Session
This session will define intersectionality and a panel of young adults will discuss their experiences with intersectionality and how mentoring programs can create opportunities for mentees and communities who face multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination through mentoring policies and procedures, training, and collaborations with organizations that serve diverse groups. This presentation will address multiple types of diversity, including disability, LGBTQIA+, socioeconomic status, gender, and race. As part of this training, we will present a tip sheet on intersectionality skills for mentors and mentoring providers.
