Ok let’s talk about International Women’s Day. Let’s really talk about inequality and illusions of progress. Let’s talk about the intersectionality between gender and race and how that positions conversations about our equality in the workplace, whilst ignoring wider systemic inequality amongst ‘other’ parts of our blackness.
Whilst we’re here can we (re)define what it means to be equal? Let’s talk about it, you’re going to love this one. Oh and Happy International Women’s Day, we ain’t mad at it, just needed to discuss a few things.
Thank you for your continued support. Remember to keep the conversation going – connect with us on social media @bwwpodcastuk
Welcome to Season 4 of the Black Women Working Podcast.
Whilst 2020 took its unpredictable twists and turns, this year we can use that experience to steer and direct our journeys this year.
What better way to kick start the season with an ‘assessment’ of the current labour market. We sat down with careers advisor Stephanie Ozuo – @flotuk and allowed her to share her take on how we should be approaching the labour market, perhaps in ways we had not considered.
Is it about finding the job you love or going with what the market has to offer?
In this segment of Let’s Talk About It, we had to share our thoughts and reflections on Candice Brathwaite being overlooked to present a documentary on the maternal treatment of Black Women in the NHS;
a topic that Candice has documented and campaigned for her entire career.
We question sisterhood at work, activism at work, pigmentocracy and meritocracy.
This is a complex issue with industry information that we are not privy to, but what we know is that Candice was only seen for the purpose of exploitation and if she hadn’t shared her truth we would not have seen the entire truth of this story.
With Candice we stand.
Thank you for your continued support the Black Women Working Podcast. We look forward to Season 4.
It’s an end of year special from the Black Women Working team. Join us as we round up 2020 and reflect on the unexpected highs and pleasant surprises that we have encountered this year.
Thank you for your unwavering support, we are so excited for what 2021 may bring. Here’s to Season 4, back early next year.
In this ‘Let’s Talk About It’ segment, The Black Women Working Team discuss The Grammy’s inviting Tiffany Haddish to host this year’s show without pay. Our discussion navigates knowing your self-worth and value, negotiating pay and a reminder that you are the sauce ladies.
Secure the bag and protect your peace!
In times of such uncertainty, we add to our stress or exacerbate our own poor health because we are obligated to go to work because of our personal financial responsibilities. It’s time to talk about insurance.
Amida of [@]sheinsures joins us to educate us on the different insurance options available, what we can insure against and of course why it is essential for us to consider.
Leaving a job can be extremely difficult, as you will be leaving what you have been used to for a period of time. How do we find the courage and confidence to leave a job? How do you know when enough is enough? What are the signs that it’s time to leave?
Listen in on our experiences on when we decided to take the step and leave, featuring our special guest host, and podcaster Debra Chosen.
There are various forms of support to access at the workplace and this episode we unpick the difference between coaching and mentoring with guest Coach Yaa Antwi-Nsiah, founder of Next Level Coaching.
Coaching and mentoring can be very useful in guiding career progression and unlocking our own mental barriers, so do we wait for our workplace to offer or do we seek out a coach or mentor for ourselves?
The Black Women Working Podcast team hit you up with our current affairs ‘Let’s Talk About It’ segment discussing Kamala Harris becoming the first Black Female as Vice President Elect.
We have the highest respect for this accolade, but we ask ourselves again what does representation really mean? When we have a seat at the table, what happens next? Another thought-provoking topic with so many layers.
Thank you for your continued support, enjoy.
