This podcast, "Inspiring Conversations," was created by the Diversity & Inclusion Committee of Baker McKenzie Venezuela based on the global initiative of promoting the values that are part of our DNA, diversity and inclusion. Baker McKenzie is a global law firm with presence in more than 80 countries, which makes us an institution with an immense cultural wealth. This podcast was created with the objective of having a fun and entertaining conversation with our people, staff, lawyers, clients, friends and experts about this exciting topic, and to meet and inspire women, men, and non-binary people to tell their stories and be examples for others.
Episode 11: Fashion as a Tool for Inclusion
As part of the commemorations of the International Day of Afro-descendant Women and the International Day of Indigenous Peoples, celebrated in Venezuela in July and August respectively, we had the opportunity to talk to Colombian fashion designer Juan Pablo Socarrás. We talked about his project "Historias Hechas a Mano" (Handmade Stories), in which he works hand in hand with the artisan population and vulnerable communities. Juan Pablo also talked to us about his life purpose and inspired us to find our own. We know you will love this episode and we hope it moves you as much as it moved us.
