When I read Amara’s article on Medium “I survived abuse, the shelter system and city politics. The thing that broke me? Being Black in Corporate Canada” I thought of the courage it takes to speak up, and yes, corporate Canada can really break people of colour.
“People of colour are an engine of Canada’s economy, yet they continue to face some of the workplace’s most entrenched hurdles, such as near invisibility in top leadership roles, pay inequities, and discrimination”.
Amara is not only courageous; she is a force destined to make big change in the world. In this week’s podcast Amara and I talk about the curve balls that life has thrown her way, micro-aggression in the workplace, and leadership that fosters diverse teams and an inclusive culture.
