Understanding Intersectionality with Evan Thornburg | #VillanovaHRTea

The second episode of Season 3 of #VillanovaHRtea has officially dropped on iTunes and Google Play! In this episode, you will hear from Evan Thornburg, Health Equity Special Advisor for the City of Philadelphia. Evan will share why intersectionality is more than just a buzz word for DEI efforts. If we are truly going to build more inclusive cultures, we need to talk about inclusion holistically and remember that our employees bring more than a singular experience into the workplace.


"The stark difference between being an ally and being an accomplice is an ally is somebody who will go buy the t-shirt, they'll take a picture, but mostly their world stays intact. An accomplice is willing to take personal risks and risk challenging others to change. The difference is, I appreciate you wearing that shirt, but it is performative and it does stop very, very short."

--Evan Thornburg
