Tara: My first question is around Intersectionality at work — how do you think companies should approach intersectionality in their D&I strategy? What does good look like?

Tara: Taking care of your mental health is more important than ever and some employers are doing a lot to support their employees. What are the best practices you’ve experienced firsthand or witnessed from afar?

Tara: People can often feel they have to become more typically masculine at work in order to succeed whether that be in approach, communication etc. Have you ever felt this way?

Tara: My final question for you all is around politics in the workplace — companies can often discourage conversations around Politics at work but given that, for many individuals, their basic human rights are at risk — how do you create space for those conversations?
