Text: Out of the Margins and Reyma McCoy Hyten Present: "Using Technology to Advance Intersectionality"
Although mostly appropriated by the DEI industry today, the term "intersectionality" was originally coined by a Black woman to capture the specific ways that marginalization manifests for Black women in the US. This panel discussion, moderated by Reyma McCoy Hyten, will allow space for three incredible Black disabled women to discuss how they use social media and other 21st century technologies to shine a light on their lived experiences, experiences that are inadequately represented in Black, disabled, women-centric, and other marginalized communities that are, nevertheless, heavily informed by whiteness and ableism and, as a result, oppressive to Black disabled women.

Panelists include:
