I'm Not for Everyone
S2E7: Intersectionality, Marginalized Identities, and Trauma
Show Notes

What if we stopped trying to treat everybody the same and started treating everyone as they are? In today’s episode, Dr. Lee dives into intersectionality, marginalized identities, and trauma. She defines the terms and discusses the goal of a truly trauma-informed business and the perspective we can take to create a society that is more just, trauma-informed, and psychologically safe for people who hold all identities.

She’s exploring:

  • The definitions of intersectionality and marginalized identity
  • How fundamental distrust can manifest in the nervous system
  • The difference between individual identity and group identity
  • How collective, ancestral, and personal trauma can interact with each other
  • Why equity doesn’t always create safety
  • How fear and shame play a role in the conversation around intersectionality and marginalized identities
  • A break down of safety and the nervous system - and how society plays a role
  • Cultural competence vs. cultural humility (and what we should be striving for!)
  • And more!
