Highlights of new work on simultaneity

Here are some highlights of Evangelina's latest work on the intersections of differences, diversity and inclusion: The Simultaneity of Race, Ethnicity, Gender, Sexuality and Nationality.

Using her model of the simultaneity of identities, she presents a perspective on differences to introduce new ways of understanding identity, diversity, inclusion and social power. Dr. Holvino begins by critiquing common models of identity in the practice of diversity from a transnational feminist perspective. She traces the historical development of these identity models: from one-dimensional to intersectional to simultaneous. Secondly, she expands on the simultaneity model of identity analyzing the public figure of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to illustrate its applicability and to articulate skills of working with a simultaneity model. She concludes with a discussion on the potential and challenges the simultaneity model poses to engage with the multiplicity and complexity of identities in today's globalized world. Some of the objectives she addresses when giving seminars on this topic are, for example,

• Understanding the story of identity models in the USA since the 1800s and its relevancy to globalization in the 21st century.

• Identifying key premises of different models of identity and exploring their implications for Diversity, Inclusion and Social Justice in organizations.

• Discussing 5 skills and challenges on applying a simultaneity model of identity, and

• Assessing one's willingness and readiness to engage with new models of differences such as simultaneity.
