This report of the 11th Virtual Dialogue by the UN Women Training Centre’s Community of Practice (CoP) summarizes discussions on what intersectionality means for the field of training for gender equality, why it is important to consider, and how we can address intersectionality to foster transformative change through training. Intersectionality concerns people’s multiple identities and interconnected oppressions – it’s about vulnerability, power and privilege. The Virtual Dialogue highlighted methodological and pedagogical considerations for an intersectional approach to training for gender equality, and practical ways to address intersectionality. These included integrating an intersectional perspective throughout the training cycle, considering the historic interrelation of systems of inequalities, and using methodologies that centre on experiential knowledge and participatory learning.
