"I’m Just Me" - Intersectionality from Behind the Label
Gamal, or ‘G’ as he likes to be called, will take the audience on a whistle-stop tour of how life experiences and labels can confuse, inhibit and also empower us. In this short talk he will touch upon some key themes that impact how the complexity of identity is not always clear-cut and why society creates definitions in an attempt to understand the essence of diversity.
Delegates will get a thoughtful insight into the links between self-awareness, identity, history, and the impact of intersectionality within a space beyond the world of academia. We shall explore an understanding of how labels can both empower and inhibit personal growth.
