Intersectionality: Queerness and Disability in Medicine

Discrimination can intensify when an individual faces multiple, simultaneous biases. Intersectionality, the complex, cumulative way in which the effects of multiple forms of discrimination (such as racism, sexism, and classism) combine, overlap, or intersect especially in the experiences of marginalized individuals or groups is a helpful lens to examine this experience. The June 2021 SMAC discussion group is co-hosted with the Pride and Allies ERG. Join us as we explore and share our experiences on the intersection of queerness and disability in medicine.

This is a media-based discussion group that addresses issues relevant to the Stanford Medical Abilities Coalition and other Stanford Employee Resource Groups and affiliates. We use the written word, videos, and audio recordings to explore topics related to disability, ableism, and intersectionality to promote disability as a part of human diversity, inclusivity, and equity. We are always open to new members!

Closed captioning will be provided through Zoom's auto-captioning function.
