To kick things off this year, we have with us Shari Foos, Marriage and Family Therapist and founder of The Narrative Method.
EP30 Equitably ever after
In this episode, Susan and Rohini focus on taking the theory of many of the inclusion lessons discussed with experts in the space over 3 seasons into practical reframes of incidents that routinely occur in the workplace.
EP29 I is for Immigrant
Through 2021 there’s been a sense of urgency from communities outside racialized communities, for example. And that can bring with it tiredness for those who’ve been battling inequalities. We must recognize that fatigue.
EP28 P is for performative
What is ‘performative’?
Is all marketing/communications automatically performative if you’re setting out to announce what you’re doing to people?
No, it doesn’t have to be. Not when it’s backed up by the right action.
EP27 C is for code-switching
In this curated episode we bring together 2 discussions. The first with Romesh Hettiarachchi, a commercial lawyer, and the second between Susan and Rohini on the microaggressions that compound and lead to many marginalized individuals’ submissive reactions in the face of bias.
EP 26 Grace, empathy, and asking for change with Darian Kovacs

To get mentorship?
And to be leaders in that sector?
EP24 A is for Ageism

EP23 M is for Monolith – the need to better representation in the media
Let’s focus on going beneath the surface on the inclusion front, shall we? No matter what the marginalization or points of difference might be, how do you take a step back? Being especially careful in the media to NOT treat any group as a monolith, or stereotype. How can we push ourselves to really focus […]
EP22 Digging Deeper: Correcting Radical Wrongs in Canada
In episode 22, we continued digging deeper into some topics from season 1 and 2. There’s something decidedly different about next week’s federal election: it’s the first time we’re going in with our eyes wide open. To the existence of racism and discriminatory systems, to the ugly history of this country’s residential schools and to […]
#21 – Digging Deeper: A is for Anti-Black Racism
We’re kicking off season 3 with a deeper look at some of the topics we explored in Seasons 1 and 2. Thanks to the incredible expertise of the guests we’ve spoken to, we have a rich collection of actionable learnings that you can take away – and do – right now. In Episode 21, we […]
