Intersectionality: Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belongingness

Why conversations around equity require school leaders meaningfully engage with intersectionality.

Topics: Equity and Diversity

Knowing who we are and how we are seen in the world is as complex as it is essential. Understanding intersectionality is crucial for principals looking to better understand their students, school community, and themselves. Today Center for Diversity Leadership Fellow Dr. Edgardo Castro is joined by Dr. Jennifer Haan to discuss how intersecting identities shape us, and ways we can acknowledge, understand, and support students and educators in your school.

Jennifer M. Haan, Ph.D. is an assistant professor and program coordinator of educational leadership at Sul Ross State University, who’s research focuses on social justice leadership as related to the experiences of students in the K-12 public education system.
