From "The Whole Student: Intersectionality and Well-Being" Conference

Throughout the conference, Eleven04 Productions (https://www.eleven04.net/production/), a Chicago-based startup production studio founded and operated by students and alumni at Columbia College Chicago and DePaul University, captured the conference offerings via film, photography, and live social media streaming.1

STREAMED SESSIONS on Facebook Live

Due to the positive response to the conference and the waitlist that resulted, it was suggested that we try to capture the sessions in ways that could provide access to those who could not attend, either due to schedules or funding. One session per block was chosen to be streamed via Facebook Live throughout the conference. You can visit the final program (http://www.bttop.org/sites/default/files/public/FINAL%20PROGRAM_Int%20+%...) for a brief description of each session listed below, and you can watch them in full by visiting BTtoP’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/BTtoP/).

INTERVIEWS

We conducted interviews with several attendees throughout the conference to capture the array of voices that were present, and also the breadth of issues that are important to people on campuses as they related to the conference themes. View the full interviews on our conference web page or YouTube channel.2

CONNECTICUT COLLEGE
Audrey Zakriski, Professor of Psychology
Hannah Wing, Student
Judelysse Gomez, Assistant Professor of Psychology

“I’m thinking back to when I was an undergrad...in terms of being a psychology student...and I didn’t have the word ‘intersectionality’ at that time, but I think I was thinking about it in that way because of my own positionality...[about] folks not being or operating in a vacuum. We are all embedded within a specific context.”
—Judy Gomez

CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY, SAN BERNARDINO
Liliana Gallegos, Assistant Professor
Loydie Burmah, Graduate Student
Luis Esparza, Undergraduate Student

“We, in our generation, have a lot of work to do. There has been a foundation laid before us and it’s up to us to continue constructing a better narrative for everyone, controlling our stories—making sure we’re all prepared for our future, so we can lay the foundation for future generations.”
—Loydie Burmah

TRANS STUDENTS EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES
Eli Erlick, Director

“One thing we emphasize [at TSER] is looking beyond the means of equality and inclusion. Looking at how to fundamentally change the institutions we’re working through to make the well-being of trans students with intersecting identities [central so that] they’re not merely participating in the system, but changing [the system] as a whole.”
—Eli Erlick
