This meeting’s topic was on “Diversity” and was moderated by Tharani Jayaratnam, a FAOWM member who heads up a diversity panel at her place of employment in addition to her main duties. Tharani has a unique insight into this issue from “both sides of the diversity coin as she was born into a high caste family in Sri Lanka but was also a member of an ethnic minority in her country, which has fought for a separate state. She has seen life from the point of view of the oppressed and the oppressor.
