The Humanity&Inclusion Making It Work Gender and Disability Project and the Inclusive Friends Association Nigeria are proud to publish the How-To Guide: Intersectionality in practice.
It was co-developed all along 2021 by our two organizations, as a practical guide to support organizations to actually implement intersectional approach in their work. Because identities are diverse, discriminations are multiple and intersectional. Academics and policy-makers have been progressively bringing intersectionality at the agenda – giving space for the experiences of those facing discrimination based on age, (dis)ability, ethnicity, gender identities among other factors. Still, the effective use of intersectionality in projects implemented by women-led civil society organizations has shown to be challenging, due to the lack of practical guidance.
This How-To Guide is providing with steps and tools to actually adopt an intersectional approach to design and initiate projects that will leave no woman behind. Although it was developed with a targeted intersectional approach where gender is at the center of the factors of discrimination, the How-To Guide can be used to approach any context and consider all the factors of discrimination to analyze the lived experiences of individuals of all genders and (dis)ability status.
