About This List

Podcasts that promote diversity and inclusion for marginalized groups.
  1. A weekly exploration of all the things Jonathan Van Ness (Queer Eye, Gay of Thrones) is curious about. Come on a journey with Jonathan and experts in their respective fields as they get curious about anything and everything under the sun.
  2. Who Belongs? was launched in Fall 2018 as the Othering & Belonging Institute's official podcast. The question of who belongs in our societies, whether local, national, or global, is one of the central drivers that underpin how people are othered, or how the conditions of belonging are created. Our podcast addresses this foundational question to open pathways to explore a range of policies, movements, scholarship, and narratives that get us closer to the goal we seek, which is to advance a society where all belong.

  3. The Way We Lead (TWWL) is a podcast about what it means to be a leader, an ally and an advocate for underrepresented folks. We feature real-world stories of inclusive leadership and allyship and highlight folks across industries, titles, and identities who use their influence to raise others up. Join us as we dig deep on topics of identity, power, and privilege and hopefully grow as allies in the process. Heads up: we do curse occasionally. 🤷 Some research says it means we're intelligent, but we mostly do it because we're being our full authentic selves and don't want to filter our thoughts on these topics.

  6. In 2020, women are not in the US Constitution...and they never have been. Now, nearly 100 years after the Equal Rights Amendment was first introduced, it is on the cusp of finally being ratified. From Wonder Media Network, Ordinary Equality tells the full story of a landmark amendment that passed, failed, was resurrected, and now has the potential to change US history once and for all. Host and human rights attorney Kate Kelly presents the untold stories of the revolutionaries, the activists, the dissenters, and so much more, all set against a comprehensive framework of US legal, political and cultural context over the last century. As Alice Paul, author of the ERA, said, “Most reforms, most problems are complicated. But, to me there is nothing complicated about ordinary equality.”

  2. Women face gender discrimination throughout our careers. It doesn't have to derail our ambitions — but how do we prepare to deal with it?
