FestCast - Black Faces, White Spaces

Posted by on

Through Slay In Your Lane, Yomi Adegoke and Elizabeth Uviebinené not only created an inspirational guide to life but also started a national conversation. How does it feel to be a black woman in a predominantly white space? How can we improve access and inclusivity?
In 2019 they joined us as Guest Curators of the Literature Festival, and alongside them, we created a series of three events that celebrate powerful role models and capture their belief that, with the right tools, we can find success in every sphere of our lives. Today we look back at one event from that series where Yomi and Elizabeth were joined by Heather Melville, Director at PwC, and Head of Editorial at gal-dem, Charlie Brinkhurst-Cuff. They celebrate the powerful women reshaping their industries and discuss the challenges black women face throughout their life.
