Notes on white privilege

The Imposters Club
Season 2 Episode 8: Notes on white privilege, anti-racism work and getting started


In this episode, Sinéad and Melissa discuss what it means to have white privilege, and the anti-racism work we need to do to create a truly equitable society. Following the murder of George Floyd, there has been a huge surge in support for the Black Lives Matter movement around the world. This episode helps our white listeners to harness that energy,  understand how we have (sometimes unwittingly) benefited from systemic racism, and helps you get started on your journey of allyship.


We’d love to hear your stories of feeling like an imposter, so email us at and each episode we’ll be sharing some on the podcast.
