Social identity is the way each person describes their place in the world. Social identities are typically described using physical, social and mental characteristics and can include cultural orientation, race or ethnicity, nationality, sex, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, ability, and faith or religion. The way these social identities intersect can create compounded discrimination for students, parents, administrators, teachers, staff and other members of the school community.
This webinar will feature a discussion of social identity and intersectionality of inequality. Learn how school boards and administrators can recognize and ameliorate the effects of the intersectionality of discrimination. Please bring your questions for a lively discussion.
