Feminism, Intersectionality & Pop Culture
The word “feminism” can elicit a range of emotions in response. For Bee, one of the best ways to learn and speak about feminism and intersectionality is through pop culture. What does Beyonce add to the feminism discussion? How can we use film to critique and analyze ableism, racism, and sexism? Where are we seeing positive change, and where is there room for improvement? Through a variety of presentation styles, Bee helps to bring these discussions into the light.
How do we navigate and stay aware of mental health and wellness while eliminating stigma? For Bee, this topic is personal. As someone who has been transparent about her experiences with depression, anxiety, and postpartum depression, Bee has combatted stigma with openness, encouraging others to do the same.
Diversity & Identity
As a Black Canadian woman with parents who immigrated from Jamaica in the 80s, ‘diversity’ isn’t just a hot keyword for Bee. From speaking at events centering on Black women and natural hair acceptance, to highlighting little-known facts about Canada’s history, to providing authentic context to the impact that Caribbean people have made in Canada and in pop culture, Bee has her finger on the pulse of the diversity discussion. With change being seen everywhere from media to corporate industries, and with Canada celebrating its 150th birthday in 2017, now is the time to have real conversations so that we can move forward and be better than ever.
