About intertwine

intertwine envisages a progressive society which is truly inclusive — where people from all walks of life, sexualities, ethnicities, genders and abilities can work creatively, collaboratively and courageously together to transform our society into one where all can thrive.

Our purpose is to eliminate marginalisation and oppression through dismantling systemic power structures. We do this through education, engaging and connecting diverse communities and organisations and fostering resilience, intersectional inclusion and self-empowerment.

intertwine takes a primary prevention approach to help organisations understand the underlying drivers of physical, emotional and sexual abuse and that creating the circumstances for gender equity, cultural and racial justice, freedom of sexuality and gender identity and a social model of disability will result in a society with lower rates of harm by others and lower rates of self-harm by those affected.

Our training materials, public information sessions and information guides outline the ways that intersecting privilege and marginalisation are the underlying drivers of physical, emotional and sexual abuse. Our policy guides suggest practical approaches to reduce the harms caused by these systems, including clauses for use in human resources, approaches for marketing and communications, improvements in member and client relationships and planning accessibility for online and offline activities.

intertwine has a Board of Directors and an Advisory Panel consisting entirely of people with lived experience of intersecting disadvantage. It explicitly mentors and creates work for young people with lived experience of intersecting disadvantage.
