Breaking Barriers in Careers

Taboo. Unspoken. Silenced.

Breaking Barriers is a strategic initiative to explore careers through the lens of diversity, inclusion and equity from an intersectional perspective. 

Breaking Barriers acknowledges the ways in which identities operate within systems of power, privilege and oppression.
