Courageous Conversations with Kimberlé Crenshaw 
Intersectionality: Re-Imagining Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in the Academy

This event has reached capacity. Waitlist will close on Friday, March 15 at 1 p.m. MT.

You’re invited to a special installation of Courageous Conversations with Kimberlé Crenshaw. This is a timely opportunity to engage with a world renowned American legal scholar and civil rights advocate on intersectionality and critical race theory, terms she coined in legal scholarship over 35 years ago. 

This Courageous Conversations is an opportunity to explore intersectional justice, and the importance of equity and racial justice to social inclusion and an inclusive higher education. This event will explore the contested meanings, uses, and reactions to the concept of intersectionality – and the need for intersectional justice in our times.

Professor Kimberlé W. Crenshaw is the Isidor and Seville Sulzbacher Professor of Law at Columbia Law School, as well as a Professor of Law and Promise Institute Chair in Human Rights at UCLA School of Law.    

Professor Crenshaw and Dr. Malinda Smith, PhD, Vice-Provost and Associate Vice-President Research (Equity, Diversity and Inclusion), will engage in a conversation about intersectionality in efforts to advance equity and inclusion in the academy.  

This event is hosted by UCalgary's Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, One Child Every Child, O'Brien Institute for Public Health and Alberta Children's Hospital Research Institute. Opening the event will be Dr. Bukola Salami, PhD, Scientific Director of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion for ACHRI. 

We look forward to a truly unique opportunity to engage in thoughtful, respectful, and courageous conversations around intersectionality in the academy.
