For our eighth episode, we sit down with Dr. Francesca Maclean, Co-Founder and current Strategic Director of Fifty50, a student led organisation dedicated to promoting gender equity in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).
Together we discuss the role of language in promoting inclusion, strategies to address inequitable behaviours, advice on starting a student led organisation and the advantages of using a personal brand in advocating for social change.
“The phrase that I like to lead people with is if you’re not consciously including, you’re unconsciously excluding.”
