working in the aid/humanitarian/non-profit sector to share their personal experiences of discrimination in the workplace. We reached out to individuals who would be interested in sharing their personal experience, and once they're on the call with us we just let them share their story and then we have an unstructured, informal discussion during which we share our own personal experiences and also try and connect everything back to broader systemic and structural issues surrounding race, sexuality, gender identity etc. Topics covered include 'Gender and Race', 'Colorism', the exploration of the intersections of race, sexuality and gender identity and more.
