Note from Saima
The death of George Floyd's death in Minneapolis on May 25th has awakened the whole world up to this disease called racism which is so present in our societies today. We now find ourselves speaking openly for the first time about something which has been hidden or not talked about for millennia. I feel that this is one of the most important discussions to be had of our time and in todays episode I have invited my good friend Ingrid Marsh who has personally been fighting against racism for many years of her life. By bringing these issues up to the fore, there's a feeling of hope that change may be possible. If you enjoy this episode, please subscribe, rate and review and if you have any feedback or comments, do share on our trailblazer’s journey page on Instagram.
Ingrid Marsh is a Motivational Speaker, Holistic Empowerment and Transformational Life Coach, Broadcaster and Growth Mindset Guru. Her poem, The Blind Side, has been published in a Collection of Poems called 'Words by' funded by Unicef. With her work on unconscious bias prevalent in the tech we create, she is also a member of the @IEEE AI ethics committee. Described by Google as a fantastic public speaker. She's a serial entrepreneur who has owned everything from a lifestyle shop in Islington to a tech online food marketplace.
In her earlier career, she worked in Account Management for ICV serving financial institutions such as JP Morgan and Morgan Stanley. Her work includes voice-over radio ads on the BBC, Life Coach columnist for The South London Press and Asian Star Radio. She has appeared as an expert on Nick Ferrari's LBC show and joined panels on OH TV sky alongside MP Tessa Jowell and Olympian Will Bayley. Ingrid is on a mission to help women and people of colour elevate their consciousness above the stereotypes that research shows, unconsciously limits them. For them to be strong enough mentally, spiritually, physically and emotionally to power through the hurdles that come their way so that they can be all who they were meant to be.
