What does it mean to be a Black Humanitarian? Amplifying underrepresented voices in the sector

Presentation Description

Please note: Due to attendee privacy, there is no recording available for this session.

What does it mean to be a Black professional in the international development sector? This express learning lab aims to provide insights on this topic. As the founder of the platform, The Black Humanitarian, I have interviewed over 20 Black development practitioners in-depth to find out more about their experiences and challenges of working in, and navigating the sector.
Having myself worked in international development as a Black woman, I identify with the conference topic of "Who are the humanitarians?" in the sector, and have focused my efforts within The Black Humanitarian to amplify the underrepresented voices of 'Black Humanitarians'.
This lab will cover topics including racism and discrimination, as well as the need for more diverse voices in the development space.
