Beyond sex and gender


We all have multiple identity factors that intersect to make us who we are.  This is called intersectionality.  The “plus” in gender-based analysis plus acknowledges that GBA goes beyond sex and gender. It examines how sex and gender intersect with other identities such as: race, ethnicity, religion, age or mental or physical disability.

Use GBA+ to examine all the intersecting identity factors of diverse groups of people so that you can be more inclusive in your approach to developing, delivering and evaluating initiatives.
