Intersectionality Checklist - sparqs, NUS Scotland and Advance HE


A checklist developed jointly by sparqs, NUS Scotland and Advance HE.

Interventions which address gender inequality should adopt an intersectional approach, in order to reflect and address the multiple forms of disadvantage faced by the diversity of women. Intersectionality is an approach which recognises that social inequalities interact, so people’s identities and social positions are actually shaped by multiple intersecting factors.

This checklist should be used to prompt consideration of the different needs and experiences that exist within a certain group to ensure that meetings, projects and initiatives don’t simply benefit the most privileged members of that group. For example, will your plans inadvertently mostly benefit white, able-bodied, middle-class women?
