Activism is ESSENTIAL to eliminate Stigma!

CWJ7_podcast ep thumbnail_v2.png


In this episode, Julie has a conversation with activist and whistleblower Tracy Tully, to really dig deep to understand the HEART of activism.

Our purpose of this conversation was to show that being an activist has nothing to do with anger, it's not about blaming or arguing. In fact, activists are a HUGE part of how things change for the better.

Julie wants viewers to understand that activists are needed within organisations, cultures, and communities. They provide necessary disruptions to get people to stop and see the hurt that is happening.

So, how is activism appropriate in the workplace? Activists use facts to start the journey of change. They are supported by advocates who provide knowledge and education.

Our Reflections

By Emma Schneider and Julie Gillespie

Activism is ESSENTIAL in the WorkplaceAT or talking WITH people?

Our purpose of this conversation was to show that activism is NEEDED within an organisation to promote positive change. 

Activism and advocacy work hand in hand within an organisation.  and if they can be heard with an open mind and acceptance, then amazing change can happen.

This flashback talks about the role leaders play in teaching their people how to approach activism, and is pivotal to being resilient. Taking the approach of being data point driven, noting down events that have occurred in chronological order, and taking the emotion out of the story, for now - all goes towards being able to achieve the end goal of change. 

Leaders, feedback from your people is essential towards being able to self-navigate the challenge of listening to hard stories.

This builds TRUST!
