Vinita Srivastava: Resilience Is Not a Policy

Resilience is often a celebrated state of being. But is it useful to use resilience as a policy? Resilience might be the watch word if you’re fighting a zombie apocalypse or evading a meteor that threatens all life on earth, but if we zoom out, celebrating resilience doesn’t solve or change issues that plague society, like inequality. Vinita Srivastava spoke about the need for structural change to the systems that no longer serve us. Srivastava is an editor at The Conversation and the host and producer of Don't call me Resilient - an anti-racist podcast. She spoke at TD Bank Group presents The Walrus Talks at Home: Resilience in May 2021.
