    S3 E59 Safer and Braver Spaces

    S3 E59 Safer and Braver Spaces

    Abbiola Ballah (she/her) is the founder and CEO of Phern Education Studios, an organisation that is a catalyst for change in the Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging space. Originally from Trinidad and Tobago, Abbiola has spent the past 20 plus years living, studying and working in Japan, the US and Belize.

    An educator for 17 plus years, she has held leadership roles in various educational institutions, focusing on creating inclusive environments in these spaces, being especially passionate about supporting others to create communities where everyone's intersectional identities feel a sense of belonging. Abbiola is an avid reader, a travel nerd, a theatre buff, and a Japanese karaoke queen. 

    In this episode, we speak about diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEIB). What do these terms mean, and why did Abbiola choose to become a diversity worker? Her personal journey is obviously inexctricably linked to her answer because the personal is political. 

    In our conversation Abbiola also dismisses the myth that DEIB work is solely a US issue and highlights the importance of creating safer and braver spaces by outlining what those spaces actually mean. She introduces us further to the term co-conspirator as coined by Bettina Love. 

    It is an educational episode in which the brilliant Abbiola nurtures us with lots of book recommendations, her humor and by sharing her knowledge with us. Thank you Abbiola.

    S03 E58 Building Systemic Justice

    S03 E58 Building Systemic Justice

    Nani Jansen Reventlow is an award winning human rights lawyer specialised in strategic litigation at the intersection of human rights, social justice and technology. Nani is also the founder of Systemic Justice , a new organisation that seeks to radically transform how the law works for communities fighting for racial, social and economic justice. 

    Nani has an extensive background in promoting human rights in the digital context and in defending journalists and activists in some of the most repressive environments in the world. She previously founded and built the Digital Freedom Fund , which supports digital rights litigation. Throughout her career, Nani has seen first-hand how unequal power structures in society affect people’s ability to exercise their rights and achieve justice when they have been harmed or wronged. 

    By broadening access to judicial remedies and strengthening the ability of communities to leverage the power of the courts, Nani’s new organisation, Systemic Justice will help dismantle the power structures that underpin racial, social, and economic injustice and work to develop a more just society. Through her public speaking, academic work, and teaching at some of the world's leading universities, Nani is shaping the next generation of human rights lawyers and public policy professionals. 

    Our conversation centers around Systemic Justice, its trajectory, its foundational values, its transparent recruitment process, and the importance of community driven strategic litigation. We also speak about the appropriation of terms such as decolonize, and intersectionality by capitalism and by white dominated organizations, about the importance of love, vulnerability and collective care in social justice movements. Hear about one of Nani's favourite book, and a memory that had an impact on her life.

    It was an honour to have this conversation with Nani on Salt.

    S03 E57 'Kryla' Means Wings

    S03 E57 'Kryla' Means Wings

    Olena Gyrenko is a very proud Ukrainian soul. A dedicated, and happy but also often tired mama of Sophia and Lev. She is a caring daughter, not the worst friend and a loving but often whining wife to an amazing Dutch man called Leon.  

    This episode is probably one of the rawest and most honest Salt conversations I have ever had. Olena tells us about her life in Ukraine, of what it means to claim the streets and how her diasporic journey brought her to the Netherlands. How it feels to be far from the place you call home, to experience post-partum depression, witnessing an invasion, a war, an injustice from afar. 

    Our conversation is framed by poems read in Ukrainian and English giving Olena the space to structure the talk and giving her the room to speak about the topics as much and as little as she likes because at Salt we never record our guests' stories just for the sake of those, we do not expose our guests, have no interest in ‚Äėselling‚Äô their testimonies for sensational purposes, in the perpetuation of stereotypes and invasion of personal lives.¬†

    Through telling our stories here on Salt we react to the injustices of the world, we claim our testimonials as part of feminist knowledge production, as a form of resistance aiming at forging solidarity among us, positioning us a agents. We document these stories against predominant discourses, fascist regimes, one-sided knowledge production, colonialism, oppression, in moments of history where narratives are either not known, manipulated or erased. We remember to resist, to disturb people’s comfort zones, to withstand being told we are too much.  

    Olena's opening up to us all reminds me of the importance of speaking collectively about our most intimate issues as one of feminism's most beautiful beliefs. By Olena allowing us to enter into what is considered by our society as one of its most private spaces: your marriage and your home she shows us how the personal is political. And I thank Olena for that. 



    Trigger Warning: This episode contains topics of a highly sensitive nature including violence, war, rape and postpartum depression.

    S03 E56 Diversity Work Starts With A Memory

    S03 E56 Diversity Work Starts With A Memory

    What characterizes our path in becoming diversity workers who strive towards achieving diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging and intersectional justice in our societies?

    It usually starts with a memory, with witnessing an injustice that stays with us forever, and becomes ingrained into who we are. 

    For Kaumudi Goda it began with a memory about her grandmother who could not step out of the house because she was a widow and people believed encountering a widow first thing in the morning would bring them bad luck.

    The memory stayed with her and as a result Kaumudi never stopped to reflect on the world, realizing early on that dichotomies and pigeonholes representing power relations follow us everywhere we go. After studying, moving across countries and continents, and working in various fields, she decided to become a DEI consultant to be at the forefront of dismantling oppressive structures. 

    Accordingly, our conversation centers around the beauty of diversity, on the importance of feeling that we belong and on what we can unlock collectively through systemic changes that are long overdue. Kaumudi introduces us to the topic through a bike ride in Amsterdam, through her very own reflections on privilege and on how marginalized communities due to systemic disadvantages do not have the luxury to stop thinking about who they are, to not worry, to not struggle, to ultimately rest.

    S03 E55 Borjouliya

    S03 E55 Borjouliya

    Mohamed Triki is a 22 year-old Tunisian podcaster working on Borjouliya podcast, the first and so far the only podcast focusing on toxic masculinity in Tunisia.  

    Mohamed grew up in Tunis, in a middle-class family, went to public school and has very nostalgic memories about his childhood, his large community of friends and the neighborhood he has been living in. He studied business administration and his passion for feminism and storytelling led him to the world of podcasting.

    His keen interest in economics, and Development Studies and his diverse and multifaceted being motivate him to contribute to something new in those disciplines. Mohamed says: "I want to see what I can bring as someone who comes from North Africa, the Arab region, the Mediterranean. I have this idea of how I can belong to different spheres and different circles and identities, Arab, Muslim, feminism, economics, maths and arts, my own definition of religion and so on." 

    Talking to Mohamed was a joy: We talked about toxic masculinity and what it means, about men’s mental health, their bodies, unwanted dick pics, the penis, smashing the patriarchy and fatherhood. And I thank Mohamed from my heart for his openness and wonderful vibes.

    S03 E54 The Soundtrack of Womanship

    S03 E54 The Soundtrack of Womanship

    Nicolette Lazarus describes herself as a mid-life woman, with a 100% record of getting through bad days. This is something she thinks we all should remind ourselves of when facing those challenges we all experience that we never think we'll get through. Originally from the UK, she has lived in Amsterdam with her partner for over 16 years and now considers it to be her home. As a people person, she’s passionate about genuine human connection and exploring the things that we often collectively experience as women, and yet don’t talk about. 

    This has led to her leaving her previous career and comfort zone, the world of advertising and communications, to focus on her passion, bringing women together in allyship, and positive support of each other, regardless of race, religion, or other forms of diversity. She created a community and platform which is called Womanship , based in her belief that women hold the key to making the world a better place for all.

    In this episode Nicolette tells us her very own story by taking us on a journey through her life, emphasizing that we are many things, and that pigeonholes do not define us. Her story leads us towards the founding of Womanship and what happened before it, in between and now. 

    I hope you enjoy listening to Nicolette and her story because stories are what binds us together.

Inspiring stories from inspiring women!

Being a full time employee and a mam with a hectic daily routine, it is easy to get lost among obligations and tasks. By listening the ‚ÄúSalt The Podcast‚ÄĚ I felt again closer to my emotions, my human nature and the things that really matter. Thank you to all the ladies that have shared their experiences, their knowledge and their inspiring stories and to the owner of this initiative Stella for her passion and her vision.
