For me, intersectionality is about inclusion. It is how different aspects of diversity interplay to disadvantage or to advantage a person (advantage a person because we often forget that white is an ethnicity and male is a gender so we shouldn't be excluding them from conversations around inclusion). According to the theory, often times, people are not disadvantaged just because they fall within a specific diversity bucket but due to a combination of factors.

There is a gender gap in the tech industry and we're hoping to help change this by launching an ongoing ‘Women in Tech’ series which will shine a spotlight on female-identifying alumni working in this industry. Today's feature is Co-Founder of Accelerate and Graduate Software Developer, Jasneet Taak (Physics BSc, 2019).

 I grew up with such limited information about the history of the LGBTQ+ community, and I wasn’t ever given the opportunity to learn about the impact and contributions of LGBTQ+ people at school. If we don’t include LGBTQ+ people in our shared history, it essentially erases people from the narrative, and this sends such a strong message to young people that ‘people like you don’t matter’.

What was particularly amazing at Queen Mary was the diversity in our classroom - I studied with students from literally all around the world, and they brought their own experiences of public policy practice to the classroom - whether it was in class discussions or group projects.

I feel privileged to be working at one of the world’s greatest newspapers at a time of unprecedented turmoil and political challenge. It excites me to be in what feels like the epicentre of breaking news and great minds. The beauty of working in Product Management is that there really isn’t a typical day.

We met when we were 17 and we had always wanted to study abroad together. When we achieved a scholarship to study here, our dream came true. Overall Queen Mary, the University and its location, offered us the full package.

What I love about MYH is that it gives the Muslim youth the opportunity to receive judgment-free advice on issues they may face.  The fact that the helpline is confidential helps to empower younger Muslims in getting the help that they would perhaps otherwise not be comfortable seeking. For this reason I see MYH as providing an essential service to our community and am honoured to be part of such an amazing organisation.

There's a patient at the end of my supply chain and it’s about them and the people that I work with to make it happen which makes my job so worthwhile. Knowing that I have made and can make a difference to someone else’s life is a great achievement.
