UCalgary launches non-credit Intersections in Diversity program

August 30, 2018

The University of Calgary has announced that it will launch a new co-curricular program called Intersections in Diversity this fall. The eight-workshop, non-credit program will help students learn key concepts, resources, and skills to engage meaningfully with others, identify inequity, and make the campus community more inclusive. “The program takes the concept of intersectionality and how we live intersectional lives — to look at issues like race, gender and sexuality and start to understand how those intersect,” said Theresa Kenney, a UCalgary alumna and McMaster University PhD who is helping to develop and coordinate the program. “Students in this program get to have an introspective experience.” UCalgary
