The Lived Experience in an Inclusive Workplace

In the past week, I’ve heard a lot of people talking about the Lived Experience.

Why are people talking lived experiences and why should you care?

Get your pen and paper ready because we’re talking about lived experiences and why you should care about this increasingly used phrase.

In today’s show we discuss several things including:

  • What the Lived Experience means
  • Why The Lived Experience matters in the workplace
  • How people misuse the Lived Experience and much more

Here’s some of what we share on the show:

We all have a lived experience

“We all have a lived experience. The reality is that some people’s lived experience are  often deemed to be more important than others.”

Some organisations are using the lived experience as a lazy shortcut

“Some so called experts will have you believe that their lived experience as part of a particular social identity group alone qualifies them as authorities and leaders.”

Some organisations are using it as part of an ongoing strategy

“This is why understanding the lived experience is useful because for many people in your organisations, it would never occur to anyone that it even mattered”
