Many programs that address employment barriers fail to see the nuanced realities that jobseekers might experience. Through understanding the intersections of different barriers, and how universal principles of anti-oppression and inclusion can create a new landscape, we can strengthen our relationship with clients and facilitate employers’ abilities to put inclusion practices into place in a meaningful way.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Deepen understanding of intersectionality and its relationship to employment barriers
  • Develop strategies to build respectful, trusting relationships with multi-barriered people
  • Gain tools to advocate for meaningful diversity and inclusion programs
