It’s been a while but we are back with a ‘let’s talk about it’ segment and the BWW team are discussing reparations after two large companies announced that they will be allocating a specific budget targeted at BAME initiatives, following the spotlight being on the Slavery Compensation Act amidst the #BlackLivesMatter campaign.
First and foremost, thank you for all of your ongoing support and welcome to those who are new to the BWW Podcast.
It’s the final episode of the season and we definitely couldn’t predict the nature of this conversation. Taking an assessment of current times, we discuss where we are at in our own working lives during quarantine. Importantly for us, we consider the ways in which COVID-19 and the surge of the Black Lives Matter Movement can offer an open for real change moving forward.
As always shout out to our production family at the Selby Centre, can’t wait to see you all again.
In this episode, the BWW Team are discussing being your own cheerleader. It’s so easy to play humble, but is that putting us at a disadvantage and holding us back?
How good are we at advocating for ourselves?
Should we have to?
What are the ways we do so?
So many questions – tune in and give us a shout to shout out how great you are.
The B in BAME… are we to be considered our own entity or can we be harmoniously categorised as one? This episode unpicks some of the reasons why BAME initiatives are problematic in the workplace.
So, how did you get your job? On this episode we share our insights and tips on finding work ‘after’ graduation.
Listen in on some gems as to how we decided the table we wanted to sit at, how we got our seat at the table, and when and why we play musical chairs as we navigate our way through our chosen industries.
