This week Work Pirates are unpacking (and unf*cking!) toxic workplaces with Jimi Okubanjo. Director of documentary film Vanishing Women: Why Senior Women of Colour are Fleeing the Corporate World, Jimi’s expertise comes from her first-hand experience as a woman of colour in the global workplace and London over 20 years.


This episode is a treasure chest of Unf*cking Work wisdom, with Jimi giving insight on combating toxic workplaces. Join us and dive in to:


  • Why work doesn’t need to be a linear climb, and why leaving a job that’s making you sad should never be considered a failure!


  • Is your CEO lying to you? And what damage is done when we assume all employees have the same goals at work?


  • The importance of doing the work! Why leaders must be proactive in combatting systemic issues and ensuring they pay people for their knowledge.
