Intersectionality's roots are grounded in feminism and critical legal studies. A lack of diversity existed within feminism which had a narrow perspective focusing on middle and upper-class heterosexual white women's cultural and historical experiences.
This workshop aims to provide participants with an understanding of what Intersectionality is and its impact on history and to explore how the theory can be utilised to consider other cultural and historical experiences in social housing service provision.
Topics to be covered are:
An Introduction to Intersectionality
Culture, Power, and Decision-making
Historical experiences in UK Social Housing
Exploring diverse perspectives to improve social housing provision and tenant experience.
