Glenda Fredman

Journeying through Stories of Personal & Professional Identity.

I will invite you to travel with me as I retrace my journey over time and across continents, living and working within different discourses of identity. I will share narratives from the multi-storied contexts of my life (personal, professional and political) to reflect on my relationship with different identity discourses and different models of ‘self’. I will invite you to resonate with your own experience as we consider opportunities and constraints these discourses might create for ourselves, our world and the people with whom we work.
