Our Mission

The mission of the Intersectionality Research Institute (IRI) is to build and foster an intersectionally diverse and cross-disciplinary community of students, faculty researchers, and community partners who share the Institute’s commitment to applying intersectionality to social and behavioral science research — particularly in the domain of health equity — with fidelity to intersectionality’s core tenets. In service of our mission, the IRI will host journal clubs, speaker series, and other intersectionality-related programs.
