(Inter)Exchange- Interplay, Interdependence, and Intersectionality: Connecting our Branches for Accessible and Inclusive Reproductive and Sexual Health Justice.
Presented by: Robin Wilson-Beattie
As sexuality professionals, we are continually learning and embracing inclusive phrasing, ideologies and approaches in understanding how we culturally and competently address human sexuality. Interplay, Interdependence, and Intersectionality are ideologies that are are particularly crucial for people with disabilities, in order to achieve inclusive access to reproductive and sexual health and justice. A holistic approach from our profession would help achieve this goal.
