Episode Info

Episode Info:

In this episode of The Forum Podcast, Femina Ajayi-Hackworth (independent consultant, D&I author, and trainer) talks about double consciousness, dominant culture, and how it affects your authentic self.

Participants will acquire understanding about what dominant culture is and how it affects their authentic selves—how they choose to present their authentic selves at work and in society by recognizing their own self-minimization and self-modification. This dialogue is an extension of greater discussions around bias and the authentic self. The discussion is mainly based on the studies from W.E.B. DuBois.

Participants should understand the definition of double consciousness or code switching as originally developed by W.E.B. DuBois in “Souls of Black Folk.”

Learning Outcomes
  • What does dominant culture mean for me?
  • When and why do I choose to minimize or modify myself?
  • How does my cultural lens impact my authentic self?
