There’s no “one-size-fits-all” approach to career advice, especially for women of colour. That’s what Shahzia Noorally explores in The Colour Gap. More than 10 years of experience in HR and recruitment has taught her to question the norm when it comes to things like championing hustle culture, adhering to a long-term career plan and basing your worth on achieving company milestones. She dives into topics that aren’t discussed openly, such as workplace trauma, the immigrant experience and embracing the uniqueness (and correct pronunciation) of your name, to pinpoint how they can affect career trajectories — and what to do about it. The Colour Gap is part of the Alberta Podcast Network, which builds audiences for Albertan-made podcasts.

You can listen to The Colour Gap on Apple Podcasts and Google Podcasts.
