    Ep 14. Break the Chain of Exclusion and Discrimination with Aparna Mittal, Founder, Samana Centre

    Ep 14. Break the Chain of Exclusion and Discrimination with Aparna Mittal, Founder, Samana Centre

    June was Pride month with the corporate spotlight on LGBTQ+ inclusion. But what about the remaining 11 months? Get your pens and papers ready for this crucial conversation with Aparna Mittal, Founder of Samāna Centre for Gender, Policy and Law. She addresses very existential questions:  Do issues of  differences like gender, sexuality, other identities of caste, creed, class and so on and so forth, not matter? What are the implications of overlooking them in our dynamic and diverse workforce? Is it only about the business bottom-line or more?

    Aparna tells us how she works with corporate, non-corporate entities and leaders to get them to introspect on what Diversity, Inclusion and Equity (DI&E) actually entails. She breaks it down not just in conceptual and compliance terms but also what it means on the ground for businesses who plan to be successful and stick around. 

    What did you think of this conversation? I'd love to know. Just email me at shivraj@brevis.in.
    You can also let me know if there is someone you'd like featured on my podcast by sending me a voice ?on WhatsApp to +919625475442 or email Shivraj@brevis.in.

    Ep.9 The Coming Out Coaches Lucie and Vanessa

    Ep.9 The Coming Out Coaches Lucie and Vanessa

    Coming out can be a scary proposition for anyone on the spectrum of LGBTQ+. Yet, with a little guidance and support it can also be revealing and give you a sense of peace of mind. Which is why this episode is even more special. I’m joined from Switzerland by Lucie (Mind Coach) and Vanessa (Body Coach) who call themselves The Coming Out Coaches. In this 30 minute conversation they hold back nothing. As I question them, they reveal their own personal journeys, how they met, their passion project which makes their ‘coming out’ Coaching so wholistic.  
    As these fabulous ladies explain, It is about first getting you to focus on yourself and your goals. On that journey of self discovery, it is about your body, mind and soul. Leaving behind your fear of judgement of yourself and by others and being one with your environment.
    Getting you completely ready for your exciting journey of coming out and living your true selves, irrespective of your sexuality or gender.  

    Don’t forget to listen till the end as they have a very special offer for listeners. To reach out to Lucie & Vanessa - email: info@thecomingoutcoaches.com
