In this episode, Dr. O speaks with Nouman Ashraf, Assistant Professor at the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto. As a leader in the Equity, Diversity and Inclusion space he has spent a lot of his time thinking and teaching about how leadership can be a tool to promote social equity.
In this wide-ranging conversation, Nouman discusses what growing up in multiple parts of the world taught him about navigating multi-cultural spaces. He explains how his understanding of diversity has been a protective factor in his life, particularly against systemic racism. And then Dr. O digs a little deeper into how we can all curate these protective factors in our own lives.
Dr. O was so deeply affected by this conversation that she was inspired to include a Mindful Moment in this episode, where she shares some of her own experiences as a Black woman trying to deal with the “misogynoir” that she has to face every day.
This is the first of a two-part series. In the upcoming Episode 5, Dr. O brings on community leaders who will talk about how we protect ourselves as a community from the harms of racism.
