By Robyn Tongol | |3 minute read

In this episode of the HR Leader podcast, Luli Adeyemo, the executive director at the Tech Diversity Foundation, shines a light on the importance of diversity in the workplace.


Luli highlights the need for organisations to go beyond awareness and take meaningful action to create a more diverse and inclusive environment.

She discusses the concept of intersectionality, which refers to how different aspects of an individual’s identity, such as gender, race, disability, and culture, intersect and influence their experiences and opportunities. She highlights the importance of considering intersectionality when addressing diversity and inclusion.

Luli also emphasises the need to go beyond one data point and understand the intersection of various characteristics within a diverse workforce.
