This week, Lucinda is joined by Julie Kratz, the Founder and Chief Engagement Officer of Next Pivot Point, created to promote diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace, to discuss the topic of allyship - supporting people who may be different to us - and why it's a crucial part of not just advancing culture in the workplace, but in society as a whole. KEY TAKEAWAYS Allyship and inclusive leadership are very similar, and are not concepts that we can simply switch off outside of the workspace. They are a state of mind and constantly active. There are nuanced differences between regions. Progression upon certain groups seems to be more advanced in different places, such as gender inclusion in Scandinavia. As leaders, we must empower those around us. Find the allies who are passionate about building awareness and give them a voice in your organisation. Making mistakes is natural. What we have to do is admit errors when they arise, apologise, and treat them as learning opportunities. BEST MOMENTS 'There's no on and off switch for allyship' 'Allyship is to support folks who are different to yourself' 'There is so much complexity to those conversations that we've given air time to' 'Instead of going to a reactive response, think about it as a learning opportunity' VALUABLE RESOURCES The HR Uprising Podcast | Apple | Spotify | Stitcher The HR Uprising LinkedIn Group How to Prioritise Self-Care (The HR Uprising) How To Be A Change Superhero - by Lucinda Carney HR Uprising Mastermind - https://hruprising.com/mastermind/ www.changesuperhero.com www.hruprising.com Julie Kratz - https://nextpivotpoint.com/who-we-are/ ABOUT THE HOST Lucinda Carney is a Business Psychologist with 15 years in Senior Corporate L&D roles and a further 10 as CEO of Actus Software where she worked closely with HR colleagues helping them to solve the same challenges across a huge range of industries.

She talks about the “hustle tours” she went on, where she traveled the nation meeting with C-suite executives for coffee, seeking to find an ally who would help her break into the industry. In this conversation, L. provides listeners with great insights into building a group of mentors and the type of information they should seek therefrom. L. is transparent about her educational journey and what she wishes she would have known before completing multiple degrees. This is an insightful take, especially for first-generation college students, on navigating college and maximizing opportunities from a degree. L. next explains how she got into climbing. Here, she highlights the barriers that exist to the sport for Black people. She provides actionable insights for how others can come alongside underrepresented people as allies in the outdoors space.

In this episode Judith Germain speaks to Kendra Lee about shared culture and white allies. They discuss the importance of allyship and who tells the stories of marginalised communities. Does the choice of different races providing allyship training the right thing or is it just appeasing the majority group. How much 'uncomfortableness' is necessary for the training to be effective. Kendra asks how much emotional labour should marginalised communities carry whilst educating others. This is a tricky conversation which attempts to share and build awareness whilst balancing the different concerns and needs of all. They discuss how to set up an Allyship Programme and Judith talks about the risk to Social Capital that white allies face. To be an ally is an act of courage. Kendra Lee is the Vice President of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at the Philadelphia Inquirer. -------- Maverick leadership is all about thinking outside the box and challenging the status quo. It's about having the courage to take risks and the confidence to lead in a way that is authentic and genuine. But amplifying your influence as a leader isn't just about having a strong vision or a big personality. It's also about having the right leadership capability and being able to execute on your ideas and plans. The consequences of not having the right level of influence as a leader can be significant.

Welcome to season 5 of the award-winning .NET Core Podcast! Check that link for proof. Hello everyone and welcome to THE .NET Core Podcast. An award-winning podcast where we reach into the core of the .NET technology stack and, with the help of the .NET community, present you with the information that you need in order to grok the many moving parts of one of the biggest cross-platform, multi-application frameworks on the planet. I am your host, Jamie "GaProgMan" Taylor. In this episode, I hosted a roundtable discussion with Ashley Burke, Karla Reffold, and Divya Mudgal about how they got into the cybersecurity industry, how you don't necessarily need a technical background or need to be a developer in order to get into it, and how there's way more to the industry than the sensationalist "person in a hoodie, typing random commands into a Linux bash prompt," than you might have realised. We talk about the fact that both Ashley and Karla are from "non-traditional" backgrounds (i.e they didn't study Computer Science or Software Engineering) and how their experience differs from Divya's experience, as she studied Computer Science. Along the way, we also discuss some of the issues that they have each faced as women in the cybersecurity industry - an industry which is traditionally very male dominated. We also discuss ways that we can help our colleagues who identify as female. This is a slight departure from our standard topic of .NET, and more into both cybersecurity and the gender divide in our industry. I ask that you listen to what these highly skilled colleagues of ours have to say, and think about what your key takeaways from this conversation are. For instance, some of my favourite takeaways from this were: Karla saying that sometimes, "it's just a case of getting out of the way." Divya saying it shouldn't be about "male vs female", and that we should combine each other's skills and experience to create a greater team. Ashley saying that gender bias can present itself in some of the most subtle ways, and that we should stop teaching those gender biases I also really appreciated having my viewpoint and a specific long-held understanding (one which I thought would help, but actually might have hurt) challenged and changed throughout this discussion. Let me know (via the contact page) what your key takeaways where.

Leading With Empathy & Allyship
In Episode 111, Pabel Martinez, Founder and CEO of Plurawl, joins Melinda in a discussion on redefining professionalism so people can bring their authentic selves to the workplace. They explore how biases around professionalism move individuals to mask their identities and “code-switch”' to assimilate into another culture. They look into the difference between uncomfortable and unprofessional and how we can mitigate the impact of biases around professionalism. They also discuss how managers can promote authenticity at work by building trust in teams and leading honest conversations. About Pabel Martinez (he/him)Pabel Martinez is a native New Yorker, storyteller, and former Tech executive.Throughout his career, Pabel struggled balancing two jobs…Tech Employee and Actor. As an Actor, he would focus on assimilation because he was trained to believe that many parts of his identity were unprofessional.Pabel would dedicate days out of the week to study “white popular American culture” and memorize scripts he would later use for work conversations. He knew that talking about Bad Bunny and shows like Insecure, would not make him relatable. Instead, he would binge-watch seasons of Riverdale since it would help him build relationships with colleagues and senior leaders.The assimilation became overwhelming, and it was at the expense of his identity & mental health.As a result, Pabel's mission in life became redefining professionalism by empowering authenticity. In 2020, he launched Plurawl to bring this mission to life.Find Leading With Empathy & Allyship useful?

In this episode of the Embracing Only Podcast with Archita Fritz and Olivia Cream, Regina Jackson of Race2Dinner helps us deconstruct what being a true ally is. She leads off with how her work alongside Sair Rao is not steeped in niceness because being nice has not stopped racism. Thorugh her work and lived experiences over the last 72 years she is on a mission to change the status quo she co-founded Race2Dinner with Saira Roa. They took the experiences from these dinners and developed a documentary with film maker Patty Ivins called Deconstructing Karen. In the words of the filmaker's themselves “It is a provocative documentary, white women experience RADICAL HONESTY ABOUT RACISM…their daily role in upholding it, their conditioning to ignore it and the essential part they can play in tearing down the systems that are killing black and brown people every single day.” How does this translate into the workplace? It provides thought provoking questions to consider if you call yourself an Ally at work It challenges you to start with yourself in deconstructing your beliefs and triggers first It leaves us with key messages to ACT as there is urgency in having honest discussion however uncomfortable that make us feel. Only then can we seek to make the impact we seek within the Employee Resource Groups (ERG's) or diverse teams we are leading in organizations. Finally, a recognition that is a constant journey of learning, recognition and evolution If you are ready to join in on this journey to deconstruct your own racism we encourage you to engage in the following way. Purchase their book “White Women: Everything You Already Know About Your Own Racism and How to Do Better”.

As part of the Strategic Partnership and Policy team, she aims to create connections between the disability community and accessible technology through collaboration with organizations and the Microsoft ecosystem. Recently, she launched the Accessibility Nonprofit Tech Accelerator, aimed to support disability nonprofits with access to resources, grants, and software to accelerate their mission.Diagnosed with a rare neurological disease at the age of 2, she has had a lifelong journey of advocacy and applies her lived experience navigating the world as a wheelchair user to better support the disability community as a whole and the organizations that serve them.

Dr. Priya Lalvani began working with previously institutionalized adults with disabilities in her early twenties.. she later gave birth to her now 20 year old daughter with Down syndrome. She's been thinking pretty deeply about disability rights for many years and today she's invited us to do the same. We're questioning some common practices that might actually be rooted in ableism.. Why do we use the term “fully included?” Why don't we teach about disability in the classroom? What does it mean to be an advocate vs an ally? There is SO much to dive into here, friends. We hope you join us for this important conversation about ableism, disability rights, body normativity, dehumanization, a brief note on ABA.. and so much more.

From competing in the olympic trials to authoring a novel (with a second on the way), Teri Miles really has done it all. On this episode, she is here to share some of the wisdom she has gathered through her experiences. As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, Teri shares the importance of advocacy, reflections on both positive and negative experiences in healthcare, and how best to be a good ally as a medical student. One of Teri's goals is “to serve others with joy,” and that is absolutely apparent throughout this episode.Show Notes:Hiding in Plain SightAn excerpt from the preface:"This paper is one way I find gives me some 'self-therapy,' by probing my past to help resurface pain points that have been left dormant, to deal with them and dust them off… to put all things into perspective. Although, like many, there are many elements of my youth and past I would never want to repeat, but also that I would never trade—they make me who I am today.”About the Miles in Front Foundation:“The Miles in Front Foundation will serve the entire LGBTQ+ community in a different way than traditional public agencies focus being placed on LGBTQ+ adults over age 24 who have been shunned or forced into the streets to fend for themselves amidst the indifference, violence and hatred that put them there in the first place. Local agency support typically does not address adults caught in the crossfire of family, employers, religious practices, and home.”Resources:True Colors United
Anti-oppression work requires great introspection and learning of self and habits. According to Brenda Herrera Moreno, the role that we have to play in combating oppression is equivalent to the life journey of getting to know ourselves better. In our conversation today, Brenda explains how white supremacy invisibilizes and intentionally creates distance from the systems it exploits and extracts. The journey is for people to see the paradigms that shape language, humor, and interpersonal relationships. As we look deeper, we can see that these are the same paradigms that inform policies, institutions and regulations. Once we see them, then we have the opportunity to find alternatives or antidotes. Brenda is the founder of ‘In.Visible Paradigms', an anti-oppression organization committed to informing and transforming white allies in order to deepen their commitment to the ‘work', community and movement of anti-oppression. Listen to hear us talk about The ‘Great Unlearnings' that white participants experience when they start down this path What do we mean when we say ‘the work' Inherited ideologies that show up in everyday language The importance of spaces where white people can be held accountable Safety, comfort zones, reactivity Events that make white people jump into this work, without necessarily understanding the context of the movement they're apart of Analyzing power and privilege in comfort zones Windows of tolerance (how much we can handle before nervous system is activated) How ‘love' and ‘hate' are shaped systematically and historically.
