Welcome to the International Women’s Day episode. We’re going to talk about why equality matters, why we all need to be using our voices, and how to claim your courage and your power.
“Change isn’t just about big headline moments, legal victories and international agreements: the way we talk, think, and act every day can create a ripple effect that benefits everyone.” (from www.un.org)
What can we do?
-Remember that women (and all people) face biases due to their gender, race, sexuality, disability, and other aspects of their identity.
-Intersectionality can be at play in any situation.
-We all have biases. Our work is to acknowledge and confront them in our own minds.
-Knowing that bias exists isn’t enough— let’s all work to take action.
