Lesson Plan


Activities featured in this tool are adapted by Dr. Lindsey Macdonald and Dr. Aletha Stahl, CILMAR, Purdue University, from a panel on intersectionality at the 2020 National Conference on Race and Ethnicity in American Higher Education (NCORE). 

As a result of this activity, participants will be able to: 1. Define the term intersectionality and recognize its importance for understanding inequity and disadvantage, particularly in regard to the COVID-19 pandemic. 2. Identify systemic factors that create inequity and disadvantage.
