What is intersectionality and how does it relate to oppression, anti-oppression, and anti-racism work?

Join the Harrisburg Young Professionals (TAG) and the Junior League of Harrisburg (TAG) as we partner together for our second DEI and Racial Justice Training event focused on intersectionality. Our presenter, Kristen Herman (she/her/hers), Director of Prevention at the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence (PCADV) (TAG) will look at intersectionality in the context of our world today and from a historical understanding; and discuss how intersectionality impacts ourselves, our identities, and our work as professionals.

At PCADV, Kristen and her Prevention Team are responsible for all things intimate partner violence (IPV) prevention, including training nearly 60 local programs and championing state-level prevention efforts. Kristen is also responsible for leading a statewide leadership team of Pennsylvania stakeholders to draft and implement a 5-year plan toward the prevention of IPV. Prior to her work with the Coalition, Kristen was the Project Coordinator of a local IPV prevention program in Delaware, where she focused on the prevention of teen dating violence, working with both middle and high school-aged youth. With more than eight years in the field, Kristen considers herself a “born and bred” preventionist, and believes true prevention is about developing equitable, safe, and healthy communities. Kristen holds her Master’s in Public Health from George Washington University and a BS in Human Development and Family Studies from the University of Delaware.

Registration is required for this event.
