In this episode of Earth Shakers, Lizzie chats with Shani Dhanda, an award-winning disability specialist, listed as one of the UK's most influential disabled people. As a keynote speaker and practitioner for inclusion across business, government, non-profit and wider society, Shani helps organisations break barriers and integrate inclusion into their business frameworks.
Shani and Lizzie get comfortably uncomfortable dispelling myths and commonly held beliefs about disabled people, we learn how valuable inclusion is not only to humanity but to the business world as well, and Shani discusses what helped on her own journey of self discovery and acceptance of her own experiences living with a disability.
What is Earth Shakers?
Earth Shakers is a brand new podcast hosted by Lizzie Carr, an eco-adventurer, campaigner, author and founder of the environmental movement, Planet Patrol.
Lizzie has spent the last five years bringing attention to some of the most pressing issues affecting our planet. And with so much happening in the world right now - all at lightening speed - it can feel like a pretty daunting place.
Earth Shakers is her brand new podcast designed to help us feel equipped and empowered to make a positive difference in the world. This podcast delves into the minds of leading scientists, social innovators, activists, storytellers, adventurers and thinkers who are shaking up the planet, and making sense of the chaos. These individuals are pushing boundaries to forge a better world and we discuss everything from the challenges faced, sacrifices made and visions for the future, as well as the motivators that keep them going.
We’ll be able to learn something from every single one of them and, importantly, they will be providing us with the knowledge and tools to show up and take action in our daily lives - bringing out the earth shaker that exists in us all.
