Society has increasingly embraced intersectionality (Crenshaw, 1991). This concept holds that different aspects of a person’s identity are inherently non-separable and necessarily interact with one another, like race/ethnicity, gender identity, and socioeconomic status. In this talk, I consider how we can move the ecological framework toward situating the entire person in their full context by addressing the lived realities of intersectionality.
