“We are all guilty of “Otherizing” and excluding people who seem different to us, and if unchecked the results can be catastrophic. In Diversify I will be exploring exclusion in its many forms including discrimination by age, gender, gender identity, ethnicity, disability, socioeconomic background, religion or sexual orientation.” – June Sarpong MBE.
