I strongly believe opportunities like people come into your life at the appropriate time, for either a reason, season, or a long time. Today, I was reminded of this.
I had the opportunity to spend part of the day with a group of professionals with a shared purpose to drive ‘Project Race’ in our organisation by becoming Race Ambassadors, a first for the sector and exciting times.
I shared with the group my aspirations to make gender raced and raced gendered. To have both my identities: black and woman recognised and included simultaneously when producing staff statistics, so I don’t have to choose which category I ‘fit’ in when reading ethnicity and gender data.
This is one of my projects I plan to develop through partnership working that has originated from the theme of my PhD.
