Boy Moms as Boy Advocates

Boy moms make the most effective boy advocates.  That's a lesson Gemma Gaudette learned early on. Gaudette, the host of Idaho Matters on Boise State Public Radio and the mom of 2 sons, ages 13 and 9, didn't really understand the challenges boys face in the world until she had sons. Now, she believes that moms of boys need to advocate on their behalf. "If we don't stand up for our boys, no one else will," Gaudette says.  When her boys started elementary school, Gaudette realized that many adults misunderstood boys' physicality. "My one son missed a week of recess in the first grade -- in the first grade! -- for playing Tag too rough," she says. "Yet the girls who were involved did not miss recess." By second grade, her younger son -- who has ADHD -- was labeled by teachers and educators as "a bad kid," she says. That was when she realized that "boys are being put into these boxes of how they're supposed to be and how they're supposed to behave," Gaudette says, while girls are allowed more fluidity. "I'm so happy that girls are allowed this fluidity, to be rough and tumble, to be sweet, to be all of these things, and I think we're still struggling with that with our boys," she says. "We have to do a better job of allowing boys as much fluidity as girls." Boys moms are perfectly positioned to advocate for true gender equity. In this episode, Jen, Janet, & Gemma discuss: How adult misunderstanding of boys creates problems Boys' experiences in elementary school Implicit bias and gender stereotypes Double standards that harm boys & girls The societal narrative that paints boys as potential predators Why moms must speak out against implicit bias against boys Male development vs. female development Working towards gender equity for all Links we mentioned (or should have) in this episode: Raising Boys -- CBSN documentary featuring Jen & Gemma (mentioned at 2:15) Is There a "Right" Way to Talk to Your Kids About Coronavirus? -- Janet on Gemma's show, Idaho Matters ADHD with Ryan Wexelblatt the ADHD Dude - ON BOYS episode mentioned by Gemma at 2:45 Dr, Michele Borba Knows How to Help Boys Thrive -- ON BOYS episode mentioned at 37:01 Gorilla of Pain -- Gemma's son's YouTube channel.

The memorial is one part of the Center’s mission to “promote respect for human dignity and diversity through education.” A few days after the memorial was defaced, the Downtown Boise Association approached the Center with the idea to reclaim the message.

The Greater Sage-Grouse has eclipsed the Spotted Owl as perhaps the most controversial North American bird in the 21st century. These strange, wonderful birds live exclusively in the sagebrush steppe of the intermountain west. But they are in decline and protecting them has sparked fights between stakeholders across the region. Host Ashley Ahearn is a newcomer to sagebrush country, and she uses her personal journey — as an outsider trying to understand rural life — to serve as the proxy for listeners. She went from filing news stories on deadline to herding cows on horseback — and she talks about it in the show, weaving together her flailing attempts to understand country life with her quest to understand what it is about the Greater Sage-Grouse that gets so many people riled up.

This week as we remain in social-distancing and stay-at-home mode we wanted to touch base with a number of the amazing nonprofit organizations Storyfort and Treefort collaborate with. Amidst the lockdown and current state of the world our nonprofit friends have all had to pivot and rework their programming and outreach. So our team hopped on Zoom to check-in and see what's new. As well, and just as importantly, we wanted to give a further voice to nonprofits as the fundraising campaign Idaho Gives is reaching its peak. Idahogives.org generates hundreds of thousands of dollars for nonprofits in Idaho each year and in this episode we get a chance to talk with five organizations among the hundreds that Idaho Gives helps support. The Idaho Gives campaign ends on May 7, 2020. We talked with the Idaho Botanical Gardens, Lee Pesky Learning Center, Idaho Coservation League, Immigrant Justice Idaho, and Radio Boise. But, Storyfort and Treefort work with SO many other important nonprofits, The Cabin, Big Tree Arts, Treasure Valley Reads, Idaho Museum of International Diaspora, and Idaho Coalition Against Sexual and Domestic Voilence, just to mention a few. Other Treefort Nonprofit Partners: Boise Bicycle Project, B-AAMP, Snake River Alliance, Idaho Trails Association, Wasmuth Center, Boise Farmer's Market/Treasure Valley Food Coalition, Girl Scouts, Boise Rock School, Idaho Humane Society, Boise Public Library, ACLU, MING Studios, Idaho Public Television, Boise State Public Radio, Upward Inertia.Enjoy!

Sustainer giving programs provide donors an easy, automatic way to donate while also giving organizations a reliable source of income. In fact, research by the Blackbaud Institute revealed that sustained givers can increase giving to an organization by as much as 300% over two years. So, how can your organization take advantage? Today's episode, recorded live at bbcon 2019, is all about how to build and grow a successful sustainer giving program. Kristin Jackson and Bethany Taylor from Boise State Public Radio's membership team sat down with guest host Christine Newman to talk about the success they've had building and expanding their sustainer giving program. Listen in to hear the keys to their success and get insights on how other organizations can do the same.  Topics Discussed in This Episode: How Boise State Public Radio started a sustainer giving program  Experimenting with a sustainer giving program to increase success Challenges that Boise State Public Radio faced in growing the sustainer program Finding the right messaging to attract sustaining donors Is it worth branding a sustainer program? How gifts and matching funds can attract more sustainers Strategies to increase sustainer donor levels The importance of “thank you” in keeping sustaining donors Resources: Kristin Jackson Bethany Taylor Sustainers in Focus - research reports from the Blackbaud Institute Quotes:  “I just felt like – clearly it could grow to more than that.”  “That's the biggest thing is just get comfortable asking.” “If you're in the middle of a campaign, your sustainers want to help. They don't want to feel left out of your campaign.”

If you use all your energy thinking about what’s next, you may miss what’s happening right now. Gemma Gaudette, Host of Idaho Matters on Boise State Public Radio, recommends taking a moment to enjoy where you are, rather than focusing on where you’re not. When Gemma began her career, she was focused on the next move, the next raise, and the next city on her way to working in television news in a major market. Ultimately that career did not satisfy the work-life balance she sought. Her work in and out of broadcast journalism, however, led to her a perfect fit with Idaho Matters. Having lived all over Idaho, Gemma knows the different points of view and distinct cultures that exist across the state. Whether or not you agree with the differing opinions, Gemma hopes that Idaho Matters will continue to inform listeners and challenge their understanding of these topics and of one another. *** Love Shadow (Remix Safety Guide) by rocavaco (c) copyright 2015 Licensed under a Creative Commons Noncommercial Sampling Plus license. http://dig.ccmixter.org/files/rocavaco/52156 Ft: Loveshadow
