Please join the NIH Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion for a panel discussion regarding Intersectionality and Disability. Intersectionality refers to the ways in which systems of inequality based on gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, class and other forms of discrimination “intersect” to create unique dynamics and effects. Panelists with disabilities will share their unique lived experiences with intersectionality and provide recommendations for addressing intersectional discrimination at NIH.
For reasonable accommodations during this event, please contact, David Rice at 301.443.6650.
