Explore intersectional feminism at the next Women of Color Series event Wednesday, Jan. 18, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in Tinkham Veale University Center, Suite 248.
The event, titled “Intersectional Feminism – Navigating the Intersections,” will give participants the opportunity to take a closer look at movement-building.
Using the collective experiences of those in the room, a list of “non-negotiables” for a truly intersectional feminist movement at Case Western Reserve University will be created. Then, information will be shared to demonstrate how to carry out those “non-negotiables.”
The program is open to anyone—from all genders—within the CWRU community.
Shemariah J. Arki, partner and consultant at Excellence Management Group, will facilitate the event.
The Women of Color Series is an initiative in the Flora Stone Mather Center for Women for all members of the CWRU community (student, staff and faculty), regardless of gender, who are interested in advocating for intersectional feminism and equity for all women. The series is dedicated to inclusion and advocacy for marginalized women who identify as women of color based on their race and/or ethnicity (Ex. African-American, Asian/Pacific Islander, Hispanic/Latina, Native American, etc.).
The Office for Inclusion, Diversity and Equal Opportunity, the Flora Stone Mather Center for Women, the Office of Multicultural Affairs, the Social Justice Institute and the LGBT Center partner to offer the Women of Color Series.
