How do you take your intersectional resistance frameworks into your 9-5pm life/workplace?
We have a panel of former Critical Gender Studies scholars who are now working in multiple fields who will share their experiences and learnings about what it means to work through an intersectional framework in various work environments, when sometimes the work place might work directly against them!
*Ezak Marquez, Clinical Counseling Graduate Student
*Hyejin Shim, based in the Bay Area and currently works as a queer/trans survivor advocate at Asian Women’s Shelter, which is dedicated to supporting survivors from immigrant and refugee communities. She is a founding member and organizer of the queer/trans workgroup (QYUL) in KACEDA (Korean American Coalition to End Domestic Abuse), and is also a co-founder/organizer of Survived and Punished, a group organizing against the criminalization of gender violence survivors.
*Sam Jung, queer son of immigrant Korean parents, and former community youth organizer who recently graduated from the urban studies and planning department at MIT. Sam completed a CGS thesis examining the abjection of asian american men from US society based on their failure to perform up to standards of white heteronormative masculinity. Sam is also an aquarius with a libra moon sign.
