This week, Simone and Sam discuss the enormous pressure students and their families are facing after exams results were issued last week.  More on this to come on the Northern Power Futures podcast

There is grim news about the British economy and the future of the jobs market and we want to hear from YOU about how you’re being affected. Do get in touch:

New research shows that black women who have natural hairstyles are less likely to be offered a job interview than white woman, or black women with straightened hair.  Have you had experience of this?  How can we continue to strive for equality? How can we do better?

We also discuss how important even the smallest amount of self-care can be as we continue to navigate really challenging times.

This week’s Life Lessons come from the ever-inspiring Scouse Scientist Holly Ellis.

Tell us your stories of work and life or share your life lessons!
