Can You Hear Us?: Why WoCo? An Interview with Mirabella Pulido

0 comments

Estimated reading time: 10 minutes

In this first episode, the Can You Hear Us? (CYHU) team introduces themselves and their first theme: Sense of Place. They interview the founder of the LSE’s first association for Women of Colour in Consulting (WoCo): Mirabella Pulido. They discuss the reason behind the creation of WoCo, the importance of creating such a space in today’s world and what Hogwarts house is behind it all!

“Even though being a Woman of Color is not a 110% what I do and who I am it is a big part of it.”

“After looking through the LSE’s organisations and not seeing that and looking at the internships I wanted to apply for and realising that there was actually no one who I knew that looked like me that I could reach out to solicit advice, that is when I realised that there was a big need for this.”

Can You Hear Us? is a podcast affiliated to the LSE’s first society dedicated to Women of Colour in Consulting (WoCo), created by the 2020/21 Cohort. Find them on the LSE ID SoundCloud every other Thursday: https://soundcloud.com/lse_id/sets/can-you-hear-us.
