This workshop and the "Intersectionality Walk" were developed by the Science in Australia Gender Equity (SAGE) program. In line with this year’s campaign theme for International Women's Day, "Embrace Equity", this event provided food for thought on the complexities of diversity and inclusion, and offered a fresh perspective on promoting equity.
