46: Having Difficult Conversations

None of us like having difficult conversations but they’re part of life so knowing how to navigate them and prepare for them can give you the confidence to tackle them head-on. Whether it’s calling out your racist relative, asking for that pay rise, confronting a friend or leaving a job, all of these conversations can feel hard to start. We’re sharing how we approach these topics and how to get used to initiating difficult conversations.

45: Anti-Racism Resources

This week’s episode is entirely dedicated to the anti-racism resources that we have found useful in the past few weeks. We know we still have a lot to do and that the list shared below is far from exhaustive but it’s a good place to start. Becoming actively anti-racist and being an ally is lifelong work, and something that we will continue to put in the work for both on and offline. We know that sometimes we will get it wrong but calling each other and ourselves out for it is how we can learn and do better. Please share with us any resources that you’ve found helpful recently and we can continue to share them with the rest of our community. And to our black listeners, know that we hear you, we see you, we respect you and we are committed to doing the work.
