Kimberly Williams, associate director of the Days-Massolo Center, presented an interactive workshop during the Danish Institute for Study Abroad (DIS) conference held March 14-18 in Copenhagen.

“Advocating for the Intersectional Student” explored the complexities and hardships faced by the study abroad student who embodies multiple identities. Among the topics Williams covered was the understanding of how intersectionality (race, class, gender, religion, etc.) influences the pre-departure, traveling experience and reentry period.

She also provided information about how to use “privileged listening, narrative mapping and on-site interventions to cultivate a brave but safe space for the intersectional student.”
