Part 2: What are the opportunities to apply intersectionality and transform public health action?

Taking an intersectional approach requires continuous critical reflection on both the complexity of the human experience and the actions necessary to disrupt oppressive systems. This is well aligned with public health actors’ intentions to address the structural and social determinants of health.

Participants will hear from panelists with a range of perspectives on applying intersectionality in public health practice. Participants will then move into breakout group discussions, giving them the opportunity to further engage with panelists, NCCDH staff, and each other.

Following the second webinar in this series, participants will

  • Reflect on tacit knowledge shared by speakers with a diverse range of experiences and perspectives;
  • Analyze opportunities to apply intersectionality in public health practice, programs, policy and research; and
  • Engage in dialogue-based learning about applying intersectionality in their own organizational contexts.
