    Understanding Intersectionality: Bringing Visibility to the Experiences and Perspectives of Women of Color

    The AAMC Group on Women in Medicine and Science (GWIMS) and the Group on Diversity and Inclusion (GDI) hosted an informative and powerful webinar on defining intersectionality and had over 900 participants join. During this first part of a longer webinar series on various aspects of women of color, speakers from both inside and outside academic medicine introduced foundational elements of intersectionality theory, shared experiences, and created dialogue on how institutions can maintain an intersectional lens as they continue their diversity, equity and inclusion journeys.
