What is it like to be constantly confronted with barriers as a woman with disabilities? Why does real inclusion fail in Austria? In the sixth episode of our podcast, our co-host Heidemarie Egger is brought in front of the curtain with the answers to all questions about inclusion.
Heidi is a long-time expert and trainer for inclusive public relations and women with disabilities. In a lively exchange, she explains what it takes to remove barriers and promote talent - whether on a political or economic level.

With cake to combat loneliness and poverty in old age – is it that easy?
This is what Julia Krenmayr tells us about the full board, THE Viennese generation café. Together with co-hosts Heidi & Christa, the founder of the restaurant talks about how she turned baking cakes into a political statement. 🗣️ The social impact is obvious; Instead of a growing gap between old and young, the café has created a dialogue between generations and a way out of the monetary and contact poverty of seniors. 🍰


#4: Anti-racism

What does “ethnic diversity” actually mean? Are people of other ethnic backgrounds really disadvantaged in professional life? How can you be an Ally and support people of other ethnic backgrounds? How racism is deeply rooted in our system and why being non-racist is not enough; Ramazan Yildiz from ZARA (civil courage and anti-racism work) discusses this with the two CO hosts.
