The Impact of Intersectionality

Part of Dear Manager

Hosted by Aaron Harvey

You've probably heard big corporations and CEOs throw around the word "intersectionality" without providing much context into what it means and what they're doing about it. In order for modern work environments to become more supportive and diverse, we need to have honest conversations about what it takes to support employees of different ethnicities, sexual orientations, genders, ages, mental abilities, and more.

Host, Aaron Harvey, will bring on Diversity and Inclusion leaders for a candid conversation about intersectionality at work, and why it's crucial that everyone at a company (not just the HR team) prioritizes intersectional thinking, collaboration and practices.

About Dear Manager

The state of mental health in modern workplaces is bleak. Anxiety and depression are on the rise, stigma remains high, technology continues to blur the line between work-life and home-life, and employers are struggling to combat the problem head-on. It’s time for change, but when it comes to mental health, what does real change look like?

Dear Manager is an ongoing series about all things workplace mental health. Members of the Made of Millions team, including executive director, Aaron Harvey, will bring on business owners, HR leaders, workplace advocates, lawyers and doctors to tackle a wide range of topics including workplace stigma, accommodation plans, employee confidentiality, mental and physical health parity, and more. 

The series is an extension of Made of Millions viral #DearManager campaign that raised awareness of modern workplace mental health challenges. It was alongside the foundation's Beautiful Brains guide — a six-step manual that provides employers with actionable recommendations for updating their mental health policies.
