Strategies for Survival I: Social identity Norm

Check out the first from our Strategies for Survival video series. In this introductory discussion, CEO, Julene Allen discusses "social identity norms".  When examining intersectionality in the workplace, we need to take a closer look at why some experiences are different than others. One's social identity impacts their experiences at work and the further we are from the social identity norm, the more challenges we may have to overcome at work. For instance, if the social identity norm consists of a cisgender nondisabled white male, then an Asian transgender disabled woman will possibly be subjected to obstacles many of us could not fathom.
