Having white privilege and recognising it is not racist. But white privilege exists because of historic, enduring racism and biases. White privilege is not the assumption that everything a white person has accomplished is unearned; most white people who have reached a high level of success worked extremely hard to get there. Instead, white privilege should be viewed as a built-in advantage, separate from one’s level of income or effort. In this interactive lecture, Taz shows her audience how white privilege plays an important role in all of our lives. You can test your own role, learn about various biases and most importantly, how you can become an ally.
Taz spent over 4 years as a teacher before making the move to hire global teams in the Startup space. Frustrated with the lack of diversity and inclusion in her industry, she began to focus her efforts onto more strategic hiring – educating founders and leaders on the importance of mental health, wellbeing, race, religion, culture, gender, neurodiversity and so on. She’s now a full-time Diversity, Inclusion & Wellbeing Consultant and public speaker, delivering workshops from school students to CEOs and speaking to international audiences. Taz has collaborated with the likes of GoogleForStartups, Ministry of Justice, Facebook, Financial Times, Expedia, TechInclusion and Bloomberg. In her spare time, she’s an EnrolYourself alumni, part- time spin instructor, conqueror of Kilimanjaro, charity skydiver and a huge foodie.
