Intersectionality is a theoretical, methodological, and political perspective that focuses on the inequalities and discriminations generated by the intersections of different social elements: gender, social class, origin, ethnic and cultural background, age, (dis)ability, or language. During this workshop, we will use a range of interdisciplinary tools and methods to understand and analyse interconnected forms of discrimination in the world of work and how trade unions can act to address inclusion in the workplace and introduce an intersectional approach to tackle discrimination.
Objectives of the course
- To understand and have a common definition of the intersectionality approach.
- To be aware of the multiple forms of inequalities and discrimination that operate in the world of work.
- To identify tools, skills, and methods to have an intersectional approach to trade union issues.
- To formulate strategies to tackle inequalities from a trade union perspective.
- To incorporate an inclusive approach in their organisations.
Trade union officers dealing with gender, diversity, youth and migration groups, TU officers dealing with organisation, and trainers working on diversity topics.
