IGLYO is delighted to announce the first of its roundtable series on intersectionality. Through these focused discussions, we will explore the identity strands of gender, ethnicity, disability, and socio-economic status when they overlap for LGBTQ young people.
- Gather stakeholders involved in various topic-specific social movements along the strands of gender, ethnicity, disability, and socio-economic status.
- Explore the issues involved in the particular identity strands as they intersect with young people and sexual orientation and/or gender identity.
- Draft position statements on each intersectional aspect and its relation to LGBTQ youth and students
IGLYO will bring together stakeholders in the relevant field to discuss specific issues over one day. In addition, IGLYO would like to appoint two rapporteurs who will both participate in the discussion while also documenting the roundtable. The rapporteurs will then analyse the roundtable with IGLYO’s Programmes & Policy Officer. Finally, the rapporteurs from each roundtable will gather for a final roundtable later this year. Though you do not need to have experience or expertise on the topic, you do need to be familiar with IGLYO’s organisational aims and objectives.
Please note, this call is for the participation in the roundtable as rapporteur only. Other participants have an alternate selection process.
The roundtable on socio-economic status will take place over two days, depending on availability, from 28 – 30 April 2014. The event will be in Brussels, Belgium. All travel and accommodation costs will be covered by IGLYO.
Please fill in the application form here. Applications will be evaluated on a rolling basis, with a decision taken no later than 20 April 2014.
