Intersectionality training participant

Previously I only understood intersectionality as a theoretical framework to consider issues, considering my privilege etc. Now I have a better understanding of how to practice intersectionality in my work.

PACE training participant, September 2019

I was very nervous when I joined this course because I was too shy to say anything. But now I learnt to just say it, just to shake it out. Now I can speak in front of all of you. I feel good!

I left with a greater understanding of the complex forms of violence and the need for prevention strategies that reflect that complexity

Cross cultural training 1

I now understand cultural awareness as a process rather than a ‘competency mentality’ and an understanding that it is a collaborative approach rather than knowing all the right things.

Intersectionality 101 participant

I feel as though my own definition and way of describing intersectionality was very generalised and I have a much deeper understanding of it now.
