Today, community institutions and organizations are more likely to work within a framework of ethnocultural, religious and linguistic diversity. As a result, those working in the field of intercultural intervention (social work, psychoeducation, education, shelters for women in difficulty, youth protection, nursing care and mental health, etc.) are essential. more and more faced with support practices for women and girls of immigrant origin, racialized and indigenous. Women and young girls who accumulate inequalities and vulnerabilities and who are doubly discriminated against – because of their origins and their gender – within different cultural groups (host and origin). Faced with this continuum of vulnerabilities and victimizations, we are currently witnessing an awakening of awareness of inequalities due to white privilege and culturally dominant groups. Demonstrations denouncing systemic racism and racial profiling have emerged, as well as the need to decolonize research and practices, in particular to respect the principle of cultural security during psychosocial intervention in an indigenous context.


In this wave of change and cultural awareness and in a context of vulnerability of immigrant, racialized and Indigenous women, the organizing committee of this workshop invites researchers, practitioners and managers from various disciplinary backgrounds to share. among others on:

  • Intersectional and intercultural reflections and theoretical models;
  • Diversity and inclusion educational actions or programs;
  • Intervention mechanisms for adapted intercultural practices;
  • Culturally secure actions or services where the identity of the patient or victim is respected;
  • Results of research with immigrant, racialized or indigenous women and girls in a context of vulnerability (victims of gender-based violence, sexual exploitation and prostitution, homelessness, poverty, etc.) and with workers working with this population.
