May 26, 2022

Today Leila is talking to Zephaniah Chukwudum, Business Manager to CEO at Microsoft UK


  • Zephaniah's personal experiences of culture and racism
  • the power of allyship, from school age
  • the D&I journey at Microsoft and the evolution of their ERG's
  • What does culture mean? What 'normal' values define the meaning of culture and what are the actual lived experiences?
  • How being black can be weaponised and make you feel disadvantaged within the corporate world
  • Why are ERG's and representation not only important now, but for future generations and what can we learn from them
  • All good things take time and effort, you can't run an ERG without time and effort but it's a growth process. You have to prove to others that there is something worthwhile joining in with. Be consistent and show up so people see you. Pick 1 or 2 simple things and start there, don't try to do it all immediately. Choose 1 or 2 things and do them well.
