Hidden Disabilities, ITV – August 2022

When Dexter was approached to feature on ITV’s Hidden Disabilities: The True Cost, he didn’t hesitate for a second.

When the doctors told him that he needed an emergency operation to fit him with a colostomy bag at the age of 29, the worst part was feeling so alone.

Thankfully the operation was a success and Dexter hopes that being open about his journey will help others who may be struggling with an invisible illness or disability.

Journey to Transformation

Being ‘Constantly furious’.

A podcast with the incredible Teia and Lauren (in their beautiful campervan!) speaking candidly about the lack of inclusivity within recruitment. We talk about uncomfortable truths, privilege and being brave enough to say no. Changing recruitment for the better.

Pregnancy and the Taboo of Job Searching.

Should pregnancy be a barrier to career progression? We are furiously opposed to this being the case and it was a delight to hear Kizzy’s story about navigating pregnancy in the workplace and banishing the taboo for good. Kizzy also talks about the simple steps an employer can take to create a safe space for pregnant women.
