Identity In Industry opened the conversations on intersectionality in the workplace, inviting students and professionals to participate in an interactive gallery walk and open forum conversation. The event sought to strengthen the understanding of systemic issues regarding race & ethnicity based on perspective.
The purpose of this project was to make a platform for Identity-based organizations who are not apart of a National Organization. The platform, "United We Stand, Stronger We Are", seeks to provide a professional environment for students in underrepresented communities to engage in conversations about issues that affect their community. Jasmine, a third-year Interdisciplinary Engineering Major at Wentworth, had a vision for fostering an inclusive, safe and open environment for students and professionals to share experiences and understand differences. The event sought to challenge current institutional and workplace culture to provide an inclusive environment for all. This project chose a broad community, industries & institutions, and explored it thoroughly through the lens of students, alumni and professionals who exist in those spaces.
