our resources

At intertwine, we produce learning resources to spark conversation and action towards intersectional justice, and support a shared vision for thriving, safer, supportive environments for all.

We create resources as a service, whether it’s alongside tailored leadership and training programs, as a commissioned research project, or a collaborative publication.

We also offer learning resources from our training programs, that you are welcome to use to assist in nuanced discussion of the intersecting systems produce power dynamics, privilege and marginalisation. These resources include a Privilege Wheel (digital download) and our Privilege, Resistance & Proximity to Power poster (A2 print), which are available to purchase below.

resources from our programs

Image is of the front cover of learning resources booklet for teachers, made by the young people from FUSE. There is text in quotation marks: "The school needs to believe me that I need what I say I need." quoted from a participant of the FUSE program. The text and title are in a white font that looks like chalkboard writing. There is a sketched illustration of a cosy space with soft lighting, welcoming posters, progress pride flag, and comfy cushions, all in white pencil marks. There is also a sketched illustration of a young person, done in orange to raspberry pencil marks. All text and illustrations are on top of a purple, raspberry gradient background that has a gently intertwining wavy pattern.

FUSE ~ Finding Unity in Shared Experience

FUSE is our youth leadership program for diverse neurodivergent queer & trans young people (of ages 15-22), and aimed at creating a safe space that is inviting and welcoming of queer / lgbtq+ youth with multiple experiences of marginalisation.

From February to June 2024, the intertwine team & FUSE crew worked to identify and address issues and inequalities in participants’ lives. This pilot program chose to focus on making schools safe for queer, trans and neurodivergent young people.

As a collective, we decided to create a resource for teachers on how to effectively accommodate and help their queer, trans and neurodivergent students in their learning. We created a survey and filmed young people talking about this issue and produced a booklet and video. Participants drafted the text together and the art was created by one of the participants, Leighton.

This learning resource booklet was sent to school counsellors in the Manningham area, sent to Safe Schools, and is now available as an online resource here.

Ideally, the information gathered in this resource will be disseminated to school leadership and all classroom teachers, and result in positive changes to the learning environment for future queer, trans and neurodivergent students.

FUSE was proudly funded by Manningham Council’s community grants program.

communities of practice

Diversity workers are often isolated within organisations or even work unofficially on DEI because of their living expertise. intertwine’s Communities of Practice are designed for senior intersectionality advisers and others with responsibility for developing or implementing intersectionality strategies across organisations.

strategic evaluation

For organisations that are further down the track, intertwine can conduct 360-degree evaluation of your intersectionality strategies and approaches and compare aims against outcomes. Our approach is a mixed methods evaluation involving desktop research of published materials and outputs, individual interviews with internal and external stakeholders, staff focus groups, online workshops and interactive spaces to respond to draft recommendations.
