THE OPERATIONALIZING INTERSECTIONALITY FRAMEWORK
The purpose of the OI Framework is to provide guidance for how to operationalize intersectional approaches. In other words, the OI Framework helps you to put intersectional approaches into practice. Visualized as a wheel (see image below), the OI Framework identifies four points of traction: (1) Learning, (2) Harm Reduction, (3) Accountability & Transparency, and (4) Transformation. It then provides a structure to help you apply these concepts to your organization’s needs. Although there are many ways to engage intersectionally, the OI framework introduces some of the ways for you to gain traction in your work.
