A Life Not Grey began as a workplace diversity-themed blog. It’s content covered the various dimensions of diversity and inclusion: race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, diversity of thought. Unlike many situations one might encounter in life and at work, it was/is the antithesis of black and white, as few diversity-related decisions are ever so simple.
In January 2018, the focus shifted away from diversity in the workplace to media and marketing: critique, content and coaching. The move coincided with my career change. I moved from a role as an editor in the publishing industry covering all facets of HR, learning and diversity and inclusion, to owning my own media consulting firm.
Diversity and inclusion likely will still make their way into this content – I am a black woman after all – but hopefully this blog suggests that life, work and the media are filled with color and nuance, the same color and nuance present in our diverse and complex global world. Or, they should be. If they don’t, I’ll probably write about it.
In these posts I often challenge the status quo, not necessarily because I want to, but because I’m compelled to. Occasionally – or roughly every Friday – someone has to offer a different point of view on things.
