Kuran et al. (2020) credit Kimberlé Crenshaw for developing intersectional theory which explains compounded marginalization through dominating and oppressive exercise of power over people with multiple social inequities. Technology labour markets may provide evidence to support the outcomes of intersectional theory. Diversity in technology labour markets may require transparency to support the proper analysis and verification of intersectional theory in technology labour markets. Intersectional theory suggests combining social variables to capture differences in outcomes across environmental, social, and economic dimensions (Kuran et al., 2020). Kuran et al. (2020) develop a systemic approach to measuring risk of social vulnerability with intersectional theory for crisis management. Cavaghan (2020) highlights shortcomings of some feminist movements to highlight the intersectionality for Black feminists. Seag, Badhe, and Choudhry (2020) explain how intersectional theory captures discrimination without recourse for mutual exclusive demographic categories.
