#5: Changing Power Structures
Michelle Johnson and Tracy Ging moderate a panel on intersectionality, a term Dr. Kimberlé Crenshaw coined as a cross-section where various forms of oppression exists (she explains the concept in this TED video). Women of color and those who identify outside of the CIS-normative, experience a unique set of challenges that often go unheard. This panel elevates those perspectives while discussing how to remove barriers, build influence, and foster the change needed for greater representation and a more collaborative, compassionate, and creative approach within the coffee industry.
This talk was presented live at the 2017 Global Specialty Coffee Expo, the largest annual gathering of specialty coffee professionals.
