We present five methodological tools and practices to demonstrate how intersectionality can be applied in EDI research. Our five tools embrace the complexity of intersectionality as situated and embodied within the research context as well as within the researcher–participant dynamic. These are (1) cultivating intersectional reflexivity, (2) playing a privilege versus penalties board game (at the project outset, or data collection tool), (3) plotting an intersectional identity web (entering the field and engaging with participants), (4) keeping an intersectional identity work journal (data collection tool) and (5) collecting participant-led audio-visual data (data collection and analysis). We discuss how these practices and tools can be used to elicit the rich and reflexive data on the perceptions and experiences of researcher and participant as they cohabit socially constructed intersectional positions in a research project. The chapter ends with a consideration of the limitations of these approaches and future considerations.
