Title: Intersectionality: The Crossroads of Students' Identities
Lead Presenter: Wendy Schindler
Date: October 06, 2020    Time: 3:25 pm - 4:10 pm
Room: Live
Abstract: As children, we're taught to categorize and sort. Round pegs do not fit in square holes. Towers are built with the biggest pieces on the bottom which get smaller as we build upwards. So, it's no wonder we reach adulthood assigning labels and putting people in boxes. As academic advisors, it's easy to fall into those habits and see students one-dimensionally; however, students have multi-faceted identities, just like us. Intersectionality provides an understanding of how these identities exist in a system of privilege and oppression. We'll discuss how intersectionality can inform our relationships with students, our advising practices, and how we foster student success. Each participant will learn to create a personal and intentional intersectional approach to deepen your understanding of student needs and critical self-reflection as an advisor.
