S3:E5: Breaking barriers, on equity and inclusion, Sharon Amesu 

“When we know our why, then we feel less the how.’ If I know why this is important, why it’s important for my organization, when I can connect, sit not simply with the business imperative, which is clear and proven, but also the moral imperative, when I know why, there is nothing that will stop me, I will find a way through.”

– Sharon Amesu 

In this episode, Priya and Advita are joined by Sharon Amesu, an exceptional advocate for inclusion with a background as a successful criminal barrister for 16 years.

Sharon, a multi-award-winning motivational speaker, executive coach and leadership enthusiast, shares insights into the challenges leaders face in creating more inclusive workplaces and offers a compelling perspective on equity versus equality.

Her work with “She Leads for Legacy,” a community focused on accelerating black women into leadership positions, highlights the importance of allies in driving positive change.

Get ready for a thought-provoking conversation on the why behind inclusion and the path to a more equitable world.
