The Intersectionality between Gender and Race
Women experience intersectional inequality differently depending on their social, cultural, and occupational contexts. According to Gender and the Economy evidence suggests that a lot of the workplace diversity and inclusion initiatives “tend to benefit white women in particular and not other under-represented groups”.
The data speaks volumes and validates the need for organizations to approach Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) through an intersectional lens. The solution goes beyond performative allyship and initiatives, to genuine buy-in and advocacy by leadership (senior management, policy makers), particularly those who belong to non-marginalized groups.
