Intersectional approaches to equality and diversity
In 2017 we published our second research and data briefing, Intersectional approaches to equality research and data, which provides examples and guidance on intersectional approaches to research design, and quantitative and qualitative equality research and data analysis, to provide an evidence base on which to develop effective action.
We received requests for further examples and guidance on using intersectionality in equality and diversity work, in research and more broadly.
In response to this, we held a call for case studies on this topic, which was open during the summer and early autumn of 2017.
This briefing covers
- institution-wide work to raise awareness of intersectionality
- a cross strand approach to staff inclusivity networks
- dedicated work targeted at professional and support staff
- student led curriculum initiatives
- intersectional research.
It also highlights some common themes in the case studies, specifically cross-institutional collaboration, and addressing discipline and industry specific equality challenges.
