"Treat everyone the same and you will see that diversity and inclusion will be the new normal." Be ardent about change!

Brown Girl Thinking

Marketing expert, wife, mother, immigrant, and a firm believer in diversity, equality, inclusion, and empathy. I am the sum of more than half a century of life experience. I invite you to walk in my shoes and see the world from my perspective.

Of Indian descent, born in a Dutch colony in South America, I am #DesiNotDesi. I am born Dutch, but I am not... I am not white, I am not black, and I am so proud of the (dark) brown skin I am in.

I invite you to walk in my shoes and see the world from my perspective. I will talk about  Diversity, Equality and Inclusion. These values matter, so I am sharing my life lessons with you. It is my way of processing things, and maybe, just maybe, it is helpful to you.


Hopefully, my stories will give you a different perspective and food for thought. So here are the thoughts of a 50-something brown woman with little patience for people without manners. And yes, I do believe that a world where equality is the norm is possible!

Feel free to reach out and share your opinion. I believe in constructive feedback. Constructive is the operative word. In the end, we are in it together, so let's reach out with kindness. Your feedback will then always be appreciated.

Let the posts
come to you.
