Charity Chat Podcast – Difficult Conversations part 1

Posted on: September 30, 2021

This episode is part one of three in the Difficult Conversations series. The series will explore creating safe spaces for conversations around D&I, how to be an ally and get your team on board, and being ok with getting things wrong and making genuine changes.

In this episode, we’re joined by Jon Cornejo, anti-racism consultant with JMB Consulting and campaign organiser with Charity So White and Lily Lewis, Founder and CEO of The Pocressi Initiative and workshop facilitator for Let’s Talk About Race.

This episode explores the current climate, the importance of anti-racism work and the need to start having difficult conversations about race and other protected characteristics which are often on the fringe and marginalised. The episode will also focus on how we need to and can ensure minorities and oppressed groups have safe spaces while this work is ongoing for the organisation.
