Listen in to our brave conversation as we unpack the complexity inherent in our conversation topic, discussing diversity, inclusion, white privilege and social justice from our own personal experience and in our professional work in the world. We explore the critical issues that are being spotlighted particularly within the US, and also in many western countries. We don’t leave any stone unturned as we challenge each other with questions that we’re feeling our way into like “What does inclusion really mean?” to micro-aggressions that often remain hidden from view.
Get ready for a vibrant and thoughtful conversation to help you expand your capacity to challenge yourself in this context, regardless of how you identify.
For me, this was a conversation I felt a little apprehensive about opening, you will hear me speak to shame, and yet it turned out to be deeply thought provoking and certainly expanded my capacity in this area.
A huge thank you to my guests!
