L Hasham-Smith ,

Excellent

I’ve now listened to all episodes and have found all of them excellent. Each episode had at least one ‘BOOM’ moment when my existing thinking (or lack of) was challenged - e.g. the term inclusion, representation and the use of mentoring. It’s making me think differently and has inspired me to get more involved! Thanks a lot
