ECHO Ambassador Podcast: What’s on the agenda?

Meet ECHO Ambassadors, a community of (upcoming) young professionals and organizers who want to contribute to a more just and inclusive society. A community that has been shaped through the work and philosophy of ECHO, Expertise Center for Diversity Policy, and has felt encouraged by the social debate to put social justice issues on the agenda. In this podcast series ECHO Ambassadors discuss issues they feel are important to discuss in the current social debate. Tapping into their own lived experiences and community work, ECHO Ambassadors offer a fresh perspective on mainstream narratives.
