We spoke at the University of Oxford about “Neurodiversity: How to Design Equitable Support”. This talk is extremely close to my heart and while so many are speaking about neurodiversity, I believe intersectionality isn’t being represented adequately.
Consciously or not, we have all been marginalised just by being born.
Whether it is down to your:
👉 Skin, eye, or hair colour
👉 Brain differences
👉 Place of origin
👉 Family circumstances
👉 Looks and how you present yourself
👉 Choice on who you love
✅ Your freedom
✅ The doors that are opened to you
✅ The way you go in life
When we talk, we hope that people will hear exactly what we say.
But we each take what we want to hear, and form a different picture of what has been said.
Because these windows that we see the world is very much dependent on our experiences in life and those who had influenced us.
You can only understand the unique realities that people live in if you look out the same window that they use to see the world. I am looking forward to doing more in the space of creating more representation in the rooms where we can truly make an impact.
