Bird’s eye view of the racecourse from my walk on Cleeve Hill today. First half of the walk I listened to Dare to Lead podcast with Brene Brown and Chad Sanders - really challenging listen. As a white man in business I rose quickly without much awareness of what it might be like for a woman or person of colour on the same path. To hear Chad explain that to get to a certain level as a black man takes a Herculean effort, and then when there the white male colleagues treat you as if you’re there almost as a favour, or to fill a quota. Same for women and other minorities of course. How much have I taken things for granted. Lots to reflect on!
