Black History Month conversations are important to help us to connect and create inclusive workplaces where everyone can be themselves.

Empower is TalkTalk's employee network focused on race and ethnicity, helping to ensure the true representation of black, Asian and ethnic minority individuals at all levels of the business. The network creates a safe space to educate, celebrate and elevate colleagues by running networking sessions, events, panel discussions and socials to connect employees from across the business.

In this week’s episode, Empower network chair Charmaine Connors and community member Aphra Barnes talk to Inclusion Manager Lisa Adkin about growing up mixed-race, the pride of their heritage and the challenges they’ve faced.
