Abadesi is on a mission to help businesses, especially in the tech industry, become more inclusive. Through her own lived experiences in the workplace, Abadesi shares with audiences how we all have a part to play within our companies success. But to do this, we need to be respectful, have empathy, compassion, and remove our unconscoius biases which hold back others from fulfilling their own potential.
It was during her work expereinces that Abadesi realised many of us are still ignorant of discrimination in the workplace and fail to understand where to draw the line between 'banter' and 'discriminating behaviour'. This led Abadesi to come up with a revolutionary idea that she thinks may be able to help solve this issue: HustleCrew.
