    Let's Talk About It - Sick of it! An end to Britain's sick note culture

    Let's Talk About It - Sick of it! An end to Britain's sick note culture

    The UK's Prime Minister has 'vowed to end Britain's sick note culture'. BWW hosts, Natalie and Chantelle sit down to unpack the problematic nature of this intended reform.
    From potentially leaving employees feeling dis-empowered to call out toxic, stressful work environments and prioritise their health to failing to hold the government and employers to account in tackling the root causes.

    Let's talk about it - Aunty Di, we stand with you

    Let's talk about it - Aunty Di, we stand with you

    Last Week, comments by Frank Hester, a long term Millionaire Tory Donor surfaced in which he called for Diane Abbot MP to be shot and stated that seeing her on television, made him want to hate all Black Women. We, along with many others, were infuriated by his comments but also deeply hurt that Frank Hester’s views are all too common and that this episode is not a new experience or a “one off” occurrence for us as Black Women.

    In this episode, Chan and Nats sit down to talk about how these comments about Diane Abbott MP, the first black woman to be elected as a member of parliament in 1986, have impacted us and how we move forward when we are dealing with Frank Hesters in our working environment. We stand by Diane Abbott MP and all other Black Women that face racism in the workplace and in their daily lives and provide support for each other when figuring out how to continuing working and showing up as our authentic selves in light of such regular occurrences.
