Favourite newsletters

Over the last few years, I’ve retreated from social media more often and embraced being more selective about what knowledge I consume and how. One of the ways I chose to slow down my consumption of others’ voices and overcome the algorithms was to subscribe to a choice selection of newsletters. This is a list of those that reliably deliver joy and knowledge to my inbox. 

I’ll add to the list if anything becomes a regular read in my life. I’ll remove listings if they no longer spark curiosity. Listings are either categorised as belonging; for all things diversity, equity, inclusion and activism or becoming; for all things wellness, thinking and personal growth.
