Reflection tool: How is your intersectional practice?

Use this tool to reflect on the impact of your positions and actions and identify strengths and weaknesses in how you, your team, and your organisation practices intersectionality

About this tool

This tool is from a resource called ‘Lens on, hands on: An Intersectional Guide to Financial Capability Program Development,’ created by Good Shepherd Australia & New Zealand, WIRE and Women with Disabilities Victoria, as part of the Women’s Financial Capabilities Project. This content in this resource was led by a co-design process which engaged First Nations women, women from migrant, refugee, and asylum seeker backgrounds and women with disabilities.

Reflection is a process

  • Create space and time so we can reflect deeply and share safely
  • Practice active listening and respectful communication
  • Look out for power imbalances at play in the process

Whose views are important?

  • How will you centre the person in your program/ service?
  • What do these principles mean to them?
  • Whose voice is missing here?

Find strengths

  • What are we already doing?
  • What are our strengths?
  • What do we do well in the way we work and in our programs?

Find weaknesses

  • What aren’t we doing? Why? What’s important?
  • What stops us as individuals/ teams/ programs/ organisations?
  • What do we need to do differently? Who might we need to work with?
