10 Let's talk about..Race, Gender, Class & Equality with Dr Faiza Shaheen

This week, I'm joined by one of the most refreshing & inspiring voices in British politics, Dr Faiza Shaheen. This interview is packed full of insightful real talk about race, gender, class and equality.


Faiza is the Director of the think tank CLASS (Centre for Labour & Social Studies) which aims to challenge policy and ensure it works for everyday people. She's also the potential Labour Party candidate for Chingford & Woodford Green. You'll also know Faiza for her brilliant work as a social commentator, she's appeared on BBC's Question Time, Newsnight, Sky News and is a regular contributor to The Guardian.


We discuss everything...From Faiza's thoughts on diversity in politics, to her personal experiences of classism and racism and what it was like being a working class, brown girl at Oxford University! Even Beyonce´and Cardi B get a mention! The only thing we don't talk about is Brexit..well maybe just a little bit! x Uma
