We dive into: How Chloe was a driving factor into getting the Paralympians competing at the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics the same pay for winning medals as the other Olympic athletes.    The reason behind creating ‘The Female Athlete Project' and why it is such a game-changer in the world of sport.   Challenging the misconception around women's sports and shedding light on their achievements and gaining mainstream media exposure.    How Chloe managed to stay at the top of her game in each sporting code and receiving huge praise and accolades after each sporting transition. If you are an aspiring young athlete who is striving to make the next level then Chloe will give you the inspiration to do so. This episode is about the journey to becoming a professional athlete and gives you advice on how to handle pressure and adversity along the way.    This podcast is extremely relevant in the sporting world because women's sports have typically had a back seat in terms of media coverage.

Promoting Diversity and Inclusiveness in the Wellness Space with Maygen Nicholson Yoga and meditation are crucial tools we use in an increasingly busy and stressful world. But, did you know some people are being excluded in these spaces? The 2SLGBTQIA+ community has long withstood discrimination in society, and the wellness space is no exemption. It's already difficult to manage stress, what more for those who are marginalized. In today's episode, Maygen Nicholson breaks down how we can promote diversity and inclusiveness  in the wellness spaces and everywhere you go. The first step is understanding. Furthermore, it is a lifelong process that involves continuously educating ourselves and learning from others. The journey will be uncomfortable, but that is part of the work that we need to do. If you want to learn how to create safe spaces for the non-gender-conforming people in your community, this episode is for you!      Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode: Understand why it's crucial to honor people's identities. Learn how you can embrace diversity and inclusiveness. Know how to educate yourself and others on the topic. Resources Check out the incredible work of theTrans Yoga Project!

Episode Highlights Honoring Pronouns and Names Affirming someone in their identity drastically decreases mental health risks. Misgendering others can cause them to have gender dysphoria, a state of psychological distress. Doing this also equates to gaslighting the person you are misgendering. Practice asking how people want to be called. The Need for Diversity and Inclusiveness in Healing Spaces Maygen used to hold queer and trans-only yoga classes. Most of their attendees only felt comfortable practicing yoga with them. Yoga and meditation are important tools for the marginalized. Yet, many queer and trans people experience harm and discrimination in these wellness spaces. The main issue is a lack of understanding. So, it's everybody's responsibility to learn and do better. Even the origin of yoga accepts and honors gender-nonconforming people, so why isn't our modern practice able to do the same? Educating Ourselves We all need to educate ourselves on the matter. It is not a gender non-conforming person's job to teach you. You will always have a blind spot, so it's crucial to keep learning from others and your mistakes. The first step is dismantling your biases around gender, and then learning about what you don't know. Promoting diversity and inclusivity is less about knowing the right language and more about making other people feel seen and heard. Divestment and Support There are still a lot of important conversations to have. For instance, the number of black trans people being murdered is increasing every year. It's not possible to cancel people with immense privilege. What you can do instead is to divest or pull away from them. It's exhausting for people in the community to constantly speak about their marginalization. As an ally, you can show your support for diversity and inclusiveness by talking to the people in your life. Embracing Diversity and Inclusiveness We have to graduate from tokenism and confront our biases within ourselves. Even if you come from a place of privilege, there are still ways the dominant culture inhibits you from being who you truly are. It's going to take a while before spaces created by cis white people become safe for everyone. In the meantime, you can create these spaces yourself. Hire people from the community to create a more diverse workspace. Advocating for diversity and inclusiveness will benefit you too, as it will make your space richer. Taking Action Ideas are not helpful if they only live in your head. You need to put your knowledge into action. Different identities have long existed before colonization. As such, promoting diversity and inclusiveness is also a process of reclamation. 5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode [09:53] “I think that that's the biggest problem. It's like so because you don't want to offend, you just don't say anything. That's not the point either.” [17:41] “It's every person's responsibility to do the work, whether or not you have somebody in your life. It's also really important to know that it is not a trans or non-binary or gender nonconforming person's job to educate you.” [19:17] “The first step is dismantling all your biases around gender or learning what you don't know about it.” [20:24] ”Let go of any need to assume in the first place, that we look at somebody and we just know who they are.” [36:44] “Since the beginning of time, these identities have existed and a multitude of cultures all over the world. So this is a reclamation process.” About Maygen Maygen Nicholson is an LGBTQIA+ Inclusion and Validation Educator, Changemaker, Truthteller, and Wellness Leader.

Jane McAlevey is a fierce advocate for winning social change through organising. Her organising method, grounded in decades of experience, mentorship, and the battles of many movements across US history, is that workers and people need to lead their own change. She specialises in teaching how you can support people to do this.  For unionists, her work is well known - and this episode is a joyous journey into how she came to this approach, and how that approach works. For others in the climate movement or racial justice movements - this is a useful introduction to what Jane means by organising, how it is different to mobilising and some of its crucial features.  If you are interested in Jane's work, she has published three books and a free online book of case studies that can all be downloaded here - https://janemcalevey.com/.

Born and raised in Watsonville, I bring more than 30 years of nonprofit experience to my work  as the executive director of the Community Action Board (CAB) of Santa Cruz County, Inc.  (CAB). I stand on the values of equity, humility, and service to lead the agency to expand  services, strengthen community engagement, become culturally reflective, and experience  significant fiscal growth.  As a public speaker on local, statewide and national platforms, I strive to amplify the voices of  immigrants, Latinx families, and those impacted by poverty. Grounded in my mother's dichos  (teachings), I advocate for services that cultivate a sense of belonging. El dicho, “Cada quien pone su granito de arena” (every person contributes their little grain of sand), has fueled me to  build networks and teams that focus on cultural respect and make a difference in the lives of  others. Among the organizations where I have held leadership or board roles are Janus of  Santa Cruz, Mexican American Community Services Agency, CALCapa Community Action  Association, Conflict Resolution Center, Workforce Investment Board, Mercantile Mexicana,  Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds, Moreland Notre Dame, and Barrios Unidos. I hold a dual BA degree in psychology and Chicano studies from Scripps College in Claremont,  California, with extensive leadership development including the Bank of America National  Leadership program, United Way Leadership for Community Transformation, and the Stanford  University Graduate School of Business School's Nonprofit Management Institute, and the  Gilroy Leadership Program. In 2018, I was the recipient of the prestigious UC-Santa Cruz Tony  Hill Memorial Award for my work in social justice. Most recently, I was honored for making a  difference in our community's pandemic response in an article, “21 for ‘21” by Lookout Santa  Cruz.  It is with deep gratitude that I share my accomplishments and invite you to explore, listen, and  learn from the voices that surround you— and decide where your little grain of sand would make  the most profound difference.María Elena de la Garza  Note: the correct phone for the Day Worker Center is (831) 475-9675

Today's guest, Deke Copenhaver served the city of Augusta as its mayor for nine years.

Boundaries, relationships, and self-care for leaders   WHO IS DEKE COPENHAVER? When Deke Copenhaver took over as mayor of his hometown of Augusta, Georgia, the city's politics were broken and riven along racial lines. Half of the city commissioners were white, half were African American. Neither group trusted the other, so nothing got done. And who was it that paid the price for all of the political posturings? The citizens of Augusta. As Deke saw it, something fundamental about leadership needed to change. So, when the opportunity arrived in 2005, Deke knew he had to run for office. Against all reasonable odds, Deke and a band of enthusiastic twenty- and thirty-somethings who knew little about running a political campaign won the election. He had his first commissioners meeting as mayor on December 20th, 2005, and began the work of being a Changemaker.   CONNECT WITH US!
