S2:E10: Performative vs performance with Priya and Advita
Play • 16 min

"Because it isn't just about that showing face right and showing that we're doing the right thing, it's about making sure that you're genuinely interested in what people have to say and you're allowing them to speak up about some of the trauma and the triggers that some of these campaigns cause," - Advita Petal. 


In this episode, Priya and Advita talk about the difference between performative action and performance in the DEI space. 


Advita and Priya discuss the various performative campaigns we have been seeing especially in the past few years. This includes some of the campaigns that we've seen last week for The National Day For Truth and Reconciliation in Canada 

 or Orange Shirt Day.
