“The single story creates stereotypes, and the problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete. They make one story become the only story.”

For this upcoming Chat Box session, we’re honoured to have Malaika Serrano facilitate a discussion on single story narratives. This session will provide you with a chance to look both within and outwards, as we consider unconscious bias and combating stereotypes - both harmful ones that we have experienced and ones that we've unconsciously placed on others.


For nearly 20 years, Malaika has led diversity and inclusion initiatives in academic, non-profit and private sector spaces. In her current position as the VP for Diversity and Inclusion at WorldStrides, she works closely with Senior Leadership to define vision and strategy. This includes a number of education and organizational initiatives designed to foster a community of inclusion and a diverse workforce. Malaika holds a Diversity and Inclusion Certificate from Cornell University and is pursuing a Ph.D. at the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Milan.
