YUFE D&I Lecture: Embracing intersectionality to action EDI in teaching and learning: Towards transformative praxis in Global Public health
Recent developments have brought concerns around EDI centre-stage in UK HE, establishing the imperative for making education more inclusive. Yet, practical examples of inclusion continue to tackle injustices in silos, in terms of individual-focused protected characteristics, and fail to interrogate the long-standing colonial legacies of injustices.

Intersectionality offers a promising departure from the above approach. Despite the popularity of intersectional thinking in HE, operationalising it to transform EDI policy and practice in organisations is not straightforward, and fraught with critical challenges and difficult conversations.

Following a brief introduction to the role of intersectional thinking in EDI, this talk will share the presenter’s experience of developing and implementing an intersectionality-informed EDI framework to design and teach a MSc programme in Global Public Health.
