Thank you so much for tuning in for the second half of my conversation with Celia Daniels, a trans gender woman, an entrepreneur, speaker and a global human and trans rights activist. This is a special episode as part of the LGBTQ+ History Month in the UK and the upcoming International Women's Day.**WARNING: some of the content covered some people might find upsetting and trigger trauma, as we will touch on such elements as sexual harassment and self harm. If you do experience any of these, please seek help in one of the following organisations:For the UK listeners: www.switchboard.lgbt | 0300 330 0630www.samaritans.org | Tel: 116 123www.sane.org.uk | 0300 304 7000For the US listeners:www.mhanational.org | 1-800-985-5990www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org | 1-800-273-8255The word “transgender” – or trans – is an umbrella term for people whose gender identity is different from the sex assigned to them at birth. Although the word “transgender” and our modern definition of it only came into use in the late 20th century, people who would fit under this definition have existed in every culture throughout recorded history.The trans community is incredibly diverse. Some trans people identify as trans men or trans women, while others may describe themselves as non-binary, genderqueer, gender non-conforming, agender, bigender or other identities that reflect their unique personal experience. Some take hormones or have surgery and transition medically, while others may change pronouns and appearance and transition socially.While trans people are increasingly visible in both popular culture and in daily life, they still face severe discrimination, stigma and systemic inequality. Some of the specific issues facing the trans community are: lack of legal protection, poverty, stigma and discrimination, violence, lack of healthcare coverage and others. This is an important story to be told and heard as part of the LGBTQ+ History Month, the upcoming International Women's Day and as part of every day conversations, as these conversations need to be normalised. On this episode you will hear:1) Third Gender recognition - is that the ultimate goal?2) Do LGBTQ+ Youth need to be protected from themselves?3) The societal gender norms and language we use4) Corporate D&I: Are you doing it for PR or social justice?5) Being a trans allyLiked the conversation?

And, I felt it was important for this story to be told and heard in full as part of the LGBTQ+ History Month in the UK this month, the upcoming International Women's Day and as part of every day conversations, as these conversations need to be normalised. On this episode I felt privileged to simply hold the space for Celia to tell her story.On this episode you will hear:1) Finding gender identity across geographies, races, religions and societies2) 5 dimensions of the belonging journey3) The power of unlearning4) Trans and corporate America5) "I did not choose this life..."Liked the conversation?

Thank you so much for tuning in! On today's episode I speak to Dr Suzanne Wertheim on  everything language, and specifically in terms we use it in our day to day as well as professional settings. I thought it was a very timely conversation to have, as we are starting to debate and pay more attention to the words and language we use, and the emotional and historic meaning they carry.Language is a social practice or tool that we use to communicate to each other; and it can be written, spoken, signed, 'speaking' through our eyes etc. As we communicate, one thing we often overlook is the power the language we use carries. People speak roughly 7,000 languages worldwide. Although there is a lot in common among languages, each one is unique, both in its structure and in the way it reflects the culture of the people who speak it.Our linguistic choices can amplify a message. Or they can muddy it, and lessen its impact.My today's guest is Dr Suzanne Wertheim, a researcher, consultant, and educator on issues relating to language and culture from San Francisco. The current focus of her work is on bias in both everyday interactions and organisational systems. Specifically in the ways that language expresses bias. Dr Wertheim also provides legal consulting on the language of bias and discrimination.On this episode you will hear about:1) Cultural and social impact on language engineering.2) Evolution of language and how has our intake of information changed.3) Erasure: missing historic narratives4) Media: the power of dividing & uniting5) How do we change narratives without dehumanising people?Liked the conversation?

Thank you for joining yet another episode of The Change Agent podcast. Today I have a very juicy conversation for you on the future of artificial intelligence or AI. I invited Maria Axente, a Transylvanian AI Ethicist, who is currently part of the PwC UK team working on Responsible AI and AI for Good to join me in ironing out everything AI and Machine Learning. I hope I am not alone when I say that when I think of AI or ML, a picture of something similar to Terminator or I,Robot comes to mind. And, not too long ago the world was talking about how Ai is being built to make our jobs and us as humans redundant. But, we also know that media likes a big bold title and a sensation. However the development of novel data-driven technologies, such as ML and AI, invariably create novel ethical challenges and dilemmas, which is something we often see being raised and questioned in the industry and across social media, with most recently Netflix releasing The Social Dilemma. What is the Future of AI and AI Ethics, how can we use AI for good and create social benefit, and when and how our current world and the one we are building can come together and share this Earth cohesively? These are just some the questions I explored in a conversation with Maria.On this episode you will hear about:1) Are the sci-fi worthy AI narratives true?2) The need for upskilling the society.3) "The universe made me do it" or the unintended consequences.4) "White washing" of AI and the road to democratising AI.5) Can AI pioneers such as Google self regulate?Liked the conversation?
