Shubhangi Karmakar #Diversity Ep.121

What do you do when your face doesn’t fit? Our guest in the tortoise shack, Medic, Researcher, Designer and Activist, Shubhangi Karmakar tells us of her experiences as a person of colour, a woman, a student and an activist.
Detailing the feelings you are hit with when the message you receive seems too often be that your face doesn’t fit and that despite your work and efforts, at some stage, you wind up be seen as an inconvenience, even by fellow activists.

We discuss how it is diversity that always helps win the day, only to be abandoned when the cameras come on. Tony and I, (two white lads of a certain age) are grateful that Shubhangi shared her experiences and wisdom with us. We all need to check our privilege sometimes.
