Daring to be Different with Polly Shute

Published: March 3, 2022, 3:41 p.m.

Some dare to be different... Some change the game… In this episode I chat with Polly Shute a multi award winning Inclusion Specialist working with DIVA Media Group, Pride Sports, Women in Sport, Co Founder of Out and About LGBTQIA and was a former Board member of Pride in London.

We talk about LGBTQIA events, how the Diversity and Inclusion agenda has changed over the last 10 years, Corporate Sponsorship of Pride and "Rainbow" events, positive representation and coming out in later life. 

Welcome to the Sam Grierson interview series, chatting to change makers who have Dared to Be Different and stand up and speak out. We discuss social change that has occurred over the last 30 years, how language has evolved and is evolving and how we still have more work to do. I am interested to look at the role that the Arts play, to both inspire, provoke, educate and support social change.

Actors, Singers, Members of Parliament, Artists, Authors, Activists, and Entrepreneurs who all dare… Sam Grierson interviews… Daring to be different…
