Pride Edition: shine the spotlight on women in the LGBTQIA+ community.
We’re super excited to celebrate Pride Month and shine the spotlight on women in the LGBTQIA+ community.
Women have been prominent figures in queer social movements. As LGBTQIA+ folks are still fighting for freedom from oppression, so are queer women. In the United States, it’s still legal in many states for private employers to discriminate against applicants, pay employees less, and even fire them on the basis of gender or sexual orientation. In Europe, a recent survey found that discrimination is still present in the workplace, in public spaces, and when trying to access housing or social services like healthcare.
As always this conversation is brought to you by: Ligia Boueres, Nastya Koro, Sadie Martin and Galuh Rohmah.
Our guest: Helen Hagemeier

Helen shares her personal experience and talks about being authentic in and out of the workplace - especially a challenge to members of the LGBTQIA+ community, but something we can all learn from.
