Intersectionality, a term introduced more than 30 years ago, describes how social categorizations such as race, class, gender, and other social characteristics “intersect” and overlap in the experiences of marginalized groups. In 2015, Patrick Grzanka was looking for a way to bring together researchers on campus who study these intersections—and the Intersectionality Community of Scholars was created.
