About this episode

How do we begin to address taboo topics in the workplace? Why have certain subjects been brushed under the carpet for so long? What are the benefits of opening up the conversation around these taboos, both for team leaders and individuals?

In this episode Lucy Cohen, co-founder of 2019 Accounting Excellence finalists Mazuma and the author of The Millennial Renaissance, takes on ‘unmentionable’ topics.

In this episode, Lucy will be joined by an expert in employment law Emma del Torto who will be solving your questions on tricky situations live. Submit them anonymously here.
