In this episode, we discuss how spending time with an organisation interviewing and observing their everyday lives and use of language can uncover implicit practices that mark them as white or seemingly non-inclusive. My guest is Natasha Shrikant, who uses ethnographic and discourse analytic approaches to study the relationship between communication, culture and identity. She studies categorization in multicultural, multiracial and multilingual business contexts and provides insights into how diverse organisations operate. Natasha shares how simple strategies that might not be obvious to an organisation such as changing categorisation for example, can make a big difference in showing that they value diversity.
