I give keynotes, trainings and advise companies, NGOs, governments, schools, universities and start-ups on all topics related to intersectionality, social justice, diversity and inclusion.

Emilia Roig's goal is to advance social justice by tackling inequalities, discrimination, implicit bias and diversity based on gender, race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, age, nationality and all other grounds of discrimination simultaneously, instead of focussing on one at the detriment of the others. This intersectional approach is what makes any collaboration with Emilia Roig unique.

The Book

WHY WE MATTER. Das Ende der Unterdrückung.

To be released in German on February 15th.

The book will be translated into French and English very soon! 

Aufbau Verlag, 15. Februar 2021

Emilia Roig exposes patterns of systemic oppression and calls for radical solidarity. She shows, also based on her own family history, in which racism and Black Pride, trauma and Ausschwitz, homophobia and queerness, patriarchy and feminism collide, how racism intersects with other types of discrimination. Whether on the street, at the university, or in the courtroom, Emilia Roig creates a new awareness of how conditions we consider "normal" have evolved historically, and that our world could be a very different one.

More Information

WHY WE MATTER can be purchased at your local bookstore (the best choice!), from Aufbau Verlag itself, or from Thalia, Bücher.de, Hugendubel, and Amazon.

...and many more!

Our minds and hearts were very truly stimulated by Emilia’s input! We really appreciate their expertise and practical suggestions on how to make our working environment less unjust. 

Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), Cultural Diversity Initiative

A big thank you to Emilia Roig for giving our team so much insight, food for thought and motivation to act. The remote workshop encouraged us to push for new habits in our daily work: acting more pro-actively anti-discriminatory, challenging our own point of view and being more aware of systems of power.
