In response to the murder of George Floyd, in collaboration with Clint Sinclair, I held a series of conversations with leaders in the dance industry that resulted in a  research report called TACKLING RACISM, which identifies specific issues around race and suggests immediate actions artists and arts organisations can take to create a more inclusive industry. Read the report here

I cultivate visibility for WOMEN IN HIPHOP by putting them in positions of power and lever my platform to create opportunities to elevate their position. By creating a framework for driving diversity as an outcome of inclusion I noticed a growth in discussions about gender equality and other organisations started hiring female Judges & DJs Rain Crew frequently hires.

I am part of the core advisory collective of the ARTIST'S SAFEGUARDING AND WELLBEING HUB (ASWH), the hub was created in response to a number of women coming forward about sexual misconduct in the dance scene. As a core member of the collective I provide safe spaces for discussion & exchange and implement guidelines and policies.
