Episode 5: The Skin You're In
This episode was a bit emotional for us all and we wanted to do it justice so spent a bit more time thrashing around ideas but also doing a lot of research. As a pre-warning, the topics are hard-hitting from cancer to racism, but we felt like they needed to be covered and both are topics that we are very passionate about.
We will kick off as always with some mental health tips, our experiences, and thoughts on the C-word and we chat to our very own Emma about her personal experiences on racism, how people can be allies, and delve into microaggressions, and how painful they can actually be.

Carmel's love affair with communications started 15 years ago with her first job. Since then, her passion has extended to internal and external communications, and with it some might say, an almost unhealthy obsession with project planning. She is in her fourth year at Schneider and when she's not at her desk, Carmel loves to make jewelry, hang out with her husband and son and dream about their next holiday.
