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 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 the intersection between the media, various types of content and the diverse world we live in. 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 running my own media consulting and content creation firm.
Diversity and inclusion will still make their way into this blog – I am a black woman after all. I hope that this blog will always promote the idea that life, work, the media and the world are filled with color and nuance, and that’s a good thing. If it’s not, I’ll probably write about it.
In these posts I often challenge the status quo, not necessarily because I want to – talking about race and whatnot can be exhausting! – but because I’m compelled to. Occasionally – or roughly every Friday – someone has to offer a different point of view on things.
