S2E23 - How To Shake The Shame of Being You: Culture, Bias & Beyond (with Kiran Bassi)

S2E23 - How To Shake The Shame of Being You:  Culture, Bias & Beyond (with Kiran Bassi)

Kiran Bassi joins Lolita Walker in this episode to talk vulnerability in the workplace, sexual harassment, shame, leadership (and lack thereof), ethnic and corporate culture, owning your story and everything in between!

Far too often in corporate spaces, we keep our heads down to get the work done, overlooking the bias and bullying that is happening to and around us. In this episode, you may challenge what you are playing.

What if you found the courage to tell your manager that you were uncomfortable in a particular workplace situation and their first question was, What did you do? Hmmmm, think about this happening even in your personal life! 

Does the weight of shame overtake you?  Do you retreat and begin to question yourself?  Some of us will never know until it happens. Others of us have been here and wonder what we could have done differently.  In this episode,  Kiran is telling her story of harassment and she is sharing the pain, shame, conflicts within her ethnic culture, the irony of the corporate culture, owning her truth and using it to help others share their stories.
