As a mixed race founder, I've learned that navigating multiple identities and experiences can be both challenging and empowering. It means having a unique perspective that can bring a valuable understanding of different cultures and communities to my work.
Through my journey as a mixed race founder, I've found solace and inspiration in books such as my 'Beginning Postcolonialsm" textbook by John McLeod and 'Indo Caribbean Feminist Thought' edited by Gabrielle Jamela Hosein and Lisa Outar. These books have allowed me to connect with the experiences of others who share my background, and have provided insight into the complexities of identity and belonging.
Being a mixed race founder also means having a responsibility to promote diversity and inclusion in the workplace and beyond. It means creating spaces that celebrate the richness of different cultures and perspectives, and recognizing the value that diversity brings to any team or project.
At the end of the day, being a mixed race founder means embracing your unique experiences and using them to create positive change in the world. It means celebrating the intersection of different cultures and identities, and recognizing the value that diversity brings to any community or organization. 🌍❤️ #mixedracefounder #diversityandinclusion #multiracialexperience
