relationships and coalitions
December 9th 2022, 4 to 7 pm CET (Berlin/Vienna)
Neurodiversity suddenly seems to be the hip diversity category. But how do we benefit as neurodivergent people, especially if we’re not white autistic cis men with IT jobs? This conversation brings together neurodivergent women, lesbian, nonbinary, trans and inter people to share questions such as: What spaces do we have to share our experiences? How do we bring our specific perspective to our work or activism? What relationships and coalitions are important to us, and what do we need to feel secure in them? How do we bring intersectional aspects into discourses on neurodiversity?
First there will be a moderated discussion among the invited participants. After a short break, all interested people from the audience can join the discussion with their questions and contributions.
The conversation will take place in German spoken language. Participation in English is possible, a non-professional translation between German and English will be provided.
The event is open to all people who identify as neurodivergent women, lesbian, nonbinary, trans, inter and agender (women and TINA people).
