This virtual presentation will feature two speakers. Lisa Bowleg, Ph.D., M.A., of George Washington University will discuss her commentary titled “We’re Not All in This Together: On COVID-19, Intersectionality, and Structural Inequality,” published in the American Journal of Public Health (AJPH). Tonia Poteat, Ph.D., M.P.H., of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will speak about her AJPH article titled “Navigating the Storm: How to Apply Intersectionality to Public Health in Times of Crisis.”

ORWH’s “Diverse Voices” speaker series aims to disseminate key COVID-19 research findings that are relevant to diverse groups of women and incorporate a multidimensional sex-and-gender focus. The series strives to increase public awareness, understanding, and engagement with COVID-19 research. Each session of the series includes one or more authors of articles relevant to the health of women. Speakers present, in plain language, specific takeaways from their publication for researchers, clinicians, and the public. The speaker series amplifies research relevant to the health of women and supports informed decisions by diverse women about participation in therapeutic and vaccine trials and other research.
