We acknowledge and pay our deep respect to the traditional custodians, living communities, and emerging leaders of the land on which we live, work, and create; the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation.
Thank you for joining us.
Yes, Brown Girl in the Ring is a 70's disco track, but that's not why we're here.
Brown Girl in the Ring borrows its mission from a rhyme hailing from the West Indies.
For the rhyme, you see kids form a circle, one person is tapped on the shoulder to enter the middle and share their talents, then they tap someone else to join them and the rhyme continues.
This is the premise of the Brown Girl Pod; each week we speak to one woman about her story. We speak to women from Australia to Sri Lanka, Singapore, America and beyond. We ask them where they've been, where they're now, and their influences.
Our aim is to change the single narrative and create a space that is open, inclusive, and doing so; diverse. Brown Girl Pod is for us, by us and is created and hosted by Deborah Rodrigo in Sydney, Australia.
