Marching With Pride

In our Final conversation under the series ‘Marching with Pride’ with Ritambhara Mehta, we will try to uncover the micro-aggressions that the LGBTQ community has to face, and what can we do, systemically, to be more inclusive.

Our fourth interview under the Marching with Pride campaign

Sharing the recording of our 4th and final episode under the # MarchingwithPride campaign, Another very insightful conversation between @Sonica Aron and @Ritambhara Mehta, where Ritambhara brings up the issue of living in constant #fear of #beingjudged or being a subject of ridicule, and therefore being unable to open up or forge meaningful relationships. She shares examples of #microaggressions and #bullying at schools and the inability of teachers to deal with either the bullying, or the questions and dilemmas that children from the community have regarding #sexuality and #genderidentity. She goes on to talk about how the microaggressions, bullying and alienation continues at the workplace, pushing out members of the community to seek unconventional occupations. She also talks about a very interesting concept- What defines ‘completeness’ for a woman. A must watch for everyone, irrespective of what stage of inclusion in your journey you are. There are takeaways for everyone. #pridemonth #lgbtqia #diversityandinclusion #inclusionmatters #Diversitymatters #conversationseries #pride #createawareness #makeadifference #voices #respectandequalityforall #marchingsheep

Marching With Pride

Every conversation is an opportunity to learn and become aware about lived realities from individuals from the lgbtqia+ community. Do join us today at 3.30 for another such conversation with Rahul Paswan as he talks about his journey.

Our third interview under the Marching with Pride campaign.

Sharing the recording of our 3rd conversation under the # MarchingwithPride campaign, an insightful conversation between @Sonica Aron and Rahul Paswan. Heartfelt gratitude to Rahul for sharing his journey with such candour. An interesting thread emerges through the three conversations so far…Individuals from the #LGBTQ community understand the conflict and dilemma their families go through in accepting their sexuality and gender identity and are willing to give them time to come to terms with it and accept them.
Why can’t we then, understand and accept them? Rahul also brings out the importance of ignoring the pressures of the heteronormative society and letting curiosity prevail, to continue exploring, learning without guilt or shame, to express and seek help from allies for members of the LGBTQ community. Do watch this video to get inspired by someone who has overcome many hurdles. #pridemonth #lgbtqia #diversityandinclusion #inclusionmatters #diversitymatters #conversationseries #pride #createawareness #makeadifference #Voices #marchingsheep

‘Unshackling ourselves by building a learning muscle which is crucial to reinvent and adapt’

During these challenging times, we need to build a learning muscle, as today this cannot be left to choice because it has become a necessity that shapes the way we chose to perceive and respond to what we are facing.

The ongoing pandemic is a global phenomenon which hasn’t left any aspect of life within its sphere untouched. Some view it as a challenge of a lifetime, while some look at it as an opportunity. It depends on how one chooses to perceive and respond to the scenario.

The current phase of social, economic and business recovery has been relying heavily on innovation and reinvention, which can only be achieved with the attitude of learning, unlearning and relearning. Looking forward to your feedback, comments and stories of learning.
