Guest Post — Intersectionality: Considering Identity When Working Towards a More Diverse, Equitable, and Inclusive Future

Laura Martin, Wiley | July 15, 2021

None of us have just one identity. The concept of intersectionality highlights how multiple, overlapping identities and identity markers—such as race, class, age, gender, sexuality, and religion—contribute to how marginalized groups experience discrimination. On June 15, 2021, the Coalition for Diversity and Inclusion in Scholarly Communications (C4DISC), in collaboration with SSP’s DE&I Committee, hosted a panel discussion on intersectionality.
