Theme: Intersectionality as Critical Inquiry, Method, and Practice: Beyond Categories and Dichotomies in Culturally Responsive Evaluation and Assessment
Escalating domestic and global tensions in social, political, and economic institutions require that we urgently expand how we conceptualize our work, to end under-representation of the issues facing People of Color. When we frame the issues and opportunities that define our work, understanding intersectionality is essential if we are to avoid prioritizing the needs of some over the conditions of others. Too often we ignore the cumulative effect on those at the intersection of multiple sources of inequity. Refining our lens to see these issues more clearly is of paramount importance to culturally responsive practice.
