The Shadeism Series podcast, launched by Amrit Dhillon, explores "the role that skin tone discrimination plays in our lives today, and how we can move beyond it." As a second-generation Punjabi Canadian cis woman, Amrit is no stranger to experiences involving shadeism. This was the topic of her research in her Master's studies, which received national and international awards and media recognition. The podcast is her way of continuing to bring light to this topic after completing her studies and entering the corporate world as a researcher and strategist.
The Shadeism Series reflects on the bitter hierarchy of skin tone with stories from Canadian and world-leading journalists, authors, legal experts, researchers, and documentarians, and others. Many listeners are familiar with the legacy of skin tone preference and the role it plays in society. However, this podcast goes further than merely examining and drawing attention to this form of discrimination, it involves deep insights into how we can move beyond this form of policing that impacts BIPOC folks.
Fans can listen to the Shadeism Series on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, and other streaming platforms.
