To Face The World
C O N D U C T I N G R E S E A R C H
Interviews and Instagram
In late 2018 I started with my Master of Science in Culture, Organization and Management (COM, VU Amsterdam). I focussed on diversity and inclusion in organizations. For my thesis trajectory, I chose to interview and research the experiences of stigmatization and discrimination of people with visible facial differences on the job market. I decided to use Instagram as a method for research. Instagram is an inclusive and diverse social media network for finding people. I used the term lookism; discrimination on the basis of looks.
I interviewed over 50 individuuals. This lead to a vast and in-depth qualitative research and a successful completion of my MSc program.
Through conducting research I started To Face The World.
W H A T I DO
Inspiring, informing, activating
With my research I delve into the workings of discrimination and stigmatization. I continue this by talking and interviewing many in the field of diversity studies.
With To Face The World, I attempt to help others with issues of diversity, inclusion, discrimination, but mostly self-awareness and personal growth to counter all of the above.
I guide people in their process in coaching trajectories.
With To Face The World, I have started a platform of sharing, inspiring, and activating through media channels such as Instagram.
I share my own story, insights and thoughts to contribute to and activate others.
