KEY PRINCIPLES FOR INTERSECTIONALITY-INFORMED POLICYMAKING PROCESS TO SERVE DIVERSE WOMEN, CHILDREN, AND FAMILIES

 

Grounded in core tenets of intersectionality, the Intersectionality Policymaking Toolkit (IPT) was developed to help policymakers, practitioners, and other stakeholders with their health equity work in the area of maternal and child health. The project is funded by the WK Kellogg Foundation (P0130400) and developed by the Intersectionality Research Institute in collaboration with experts in intersectionality and maternal and child health.
