She’s A Runner, She’s a Track Star ft Anyika Onuora

Literally, she’s a runner, she’s a track star… Anyika Onuora, former Team GB athlete and Olympic medallist, joins the BWW podcast team to discuss her experiences of what it means to be a black woman working in the sports industry.

Imagine actually only working with and for black women. Seems unreal at first thought but this is the beautiful experience for black women working in the hairdressing industry.

Andree Marie owner of Maison Style Hair based in Brixton, London shares all of the positive experiences and relationships she has had during her time in the industry.
