Everyday Sexism

EPISODE #27

Synopsis

Sexism is deeply entrenched in society. We may not be aware that we are creating gender differentiation through our actions and behaviour but when everyone believes and acts a certain way, we grow to expect these attitudes and behaviour as the norm, whether it is right or wrong.

In this podcast, Talyn Rahman-Figueroa (CEO) provides recommendations on how to train ourselves on dealing with this highly sensitive issue with confidence and humility, without harming relations or causing further strain.

Grassroot Diplomat Talks is the monthly podcast produced by Grassroot Diplomat, discussing the practices of diplomacy and international relations in today's modern world. Further information can be found on: www.grassrootdiplomat.org
