Abstract:This literature review aims to examine the available literature and teaching methods regarding the use of intersectionality as an educational and professional tool within undergraduate social work education. Depicted within is an exploration of the historical use of Diversity in Social Work Educational Standards, the origin of intersectionality as a theory, as well as frameworks by which intersectionality acts as an educational and professional enhancement. Critical thought, safe discussion, and community engagement are investigated as methods of increasing intersectional usage. Intersectionality is approached in a qualitative manner where experiences precede statistics to explain impact, highlighting the individual experience within the larger group or system.
