Intersectionality is a term that helps us understand the multiple interacting influences of a person’s identity, including but not limited to ethnicity, gender, disability, education, geographic location, sexual orientation, culture, religion, mental health, social class and age. These different aspects of a person’s identity can expose them to overlapping forms of discrimination and marginalisation. It is important to acknowledge that everyone has their own unique experiences of discrimination and privilege.
