Fighting Bias: Breaking Barriers for Foreign-Born Women in Sweden through Storytelling

Empowering women isn’t just a goal; it’s a journey we take together. We might not look or sound the same but we grew up with the same values and storytelling can shift perspectives and illuminate connections between us all.

🎙️ I’m excited to share the latest episode of ‘The House Worth Having’ podcast! Join me and my guest Poliana Dias as we dive into her journey from Brazil to Sweden, touching on cultural shifts, integration challenges, and the pursuit of diversity and inclusion. Poliana, co-founder of ‘She Told Me A Story’ and ‘The House’ in Malmo, shares her insights on creating an inclusive environment through storytelling and community building. We explore themes of international migration, diversity in professional settings, and the power of storytelling for social change. Don’t miss out on this inspiring conversation! Listen now!
