Crossroads in Therapy Podcast
In this podcast, we will look at therapy through the lens of intersectionality in terms of gender, race, caste, sexuality, disability, religion, and more. Each episode features one or more experts experienced in tackling mental health challenges faced by marginalised identities. Through this podcast, we hope to bring greater attention to how identity both drives unique mental health needs and requires special approaches in therapy.

The xSDG Podcast
xSDG focusses on intersectional inclusion and diversity within development and impact programs that work on the UN Sustainable Development Goals. At Belongg, we believe that intersectional thinking linked to identities of gender, caste, disability, race, religion and more, are an important determinant of people’s access to crucial services, and need to be much more deeply integrated in the overall development ecosystem. Failure to do so neglects important realities of how people have significantly different experiences on account of their identity, in ways that inhibit their growth and the achievement of the SDGs. On the xSDG podcast, we bring to you conversations with experts who are focused on making development more intersectionally inclusive. Listen in to understand key issues and ideas for impact.
