Get ready to embark on a captivating journey as the Race Health & Happiness podcast continues our international theme with an extraordinary 3-part series that unravels the rich tapestry of South Africa. My exploration led me to the vibrant city of Cape Town, where I had intriguing conversations about race in the South African context. But before I transport you to the heart of the Motherland, we kick off this exhilarating mini-series right here in Canada with an exceptional guest: Dr. Nicole Kaniki.
Dr. Kaniki is an esteemed South African Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion professional and the visionary founder of Senomi Solutions Inc. In this episode Dr. Kaniki and I delve into the intricate complexities of race in South Africa, a place she describes as “a little Europe in Africa”. She tells me about her “superpower” — the art of listening — and how it has shaped her work in the. Social justice space. Additionally, she opens up about her personal experience growing up as a “coloured” person in South Africa, and eventually embracing her Black identity when she moved to North America.
I invite you to immerse yourself in this captivating first episode of our three-part series, where you will gain a deeper understanding of South Africa. So please sit back, relax, and prepare to be enthralled by the inspiring narrative that awaits you. You won’t want to miss it!
