In the Market with Janet Parshall
How do you find lasting joy? On In The Market with Janet Parshall we told you about the 4 habits that can bring and keep joy in your life. A new book is justifying the lie of the gay gospel. But our guest a respected biblical counselor and former gay man himself, took us to the unchanging truth of scripture and exposed the fallacies of this deceptive message. We told you about the acceptance of drag shows in the U.S. military and the dangers that children in military families are facing as the DEI agenda is pushed in their schools. The U.S. Department of Education has issued guidelines for prayer and religious activity in public schools. We broke them down and helped parents understand the implications of these new rules on the faith lives of their children. We’ve all heard the encouragement to “be true to ourselves” and on the surface that advice sounds so right to our human hearts. But our guest reminded us that the Christian life is not self-focused but Christ-focused. He helped us see the transformative power of standing against the culture in the name of the Lord. Join Janet and Craig as they once again examine the news of the week under the microscope of God’s eternal truth.

Today we're talking about Target's pride clothing line again since news of the company's collaboration with a satanist broke. We take a look at the controversial items in the collaboration and what the artist has said about satanism and Satan. One of those messages is that "Satan respects pronouns." We explain why he's right about this – Satan is the father of chaos and lies. We look at Target's response to the backlash to its pride line, which included pulling the collection from some stores, but the company's response didn't include an apology for selling the items to begin with. We explain why this doesn't mean we've won and give a call to action: We think everyone can give up Target for at least the month of June. We also discuss Chip and Joanna Gaines' silence on this Target ordeal and explain why it's so important for these famous Christians and longtime Target collaborators to speak out against what Target has been supporting. We also give a message to those expressing animosity over the Republican primary, namely due to Governor Ron DeSantis announcing his bid for president.

This is Garrison Hardie with your CrossPolitic Daily News Brief for Wednesday, May 24th, 2023. https://www.zerohedge.com/covid-19/who-warns-unusual-surge-severe-myocarditis-babies WHO Warns Of 'Unusual' Surge in Severe Myocarditis in Babies On Tuesday, the WHO issued an alert that there had been a rise in “severe myocarditis” in newborns and infants between June 2022 and March 2023 in Wales and England. It said that this was associated with the enterovirus infection, which rarely affects the heart. A UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) spokesperson confirmed to The Epoch Times that 10 babies have been diagnosed in Wales and five have been diagnosed in England. The WHO said that “although enterovirus infections are common in neonates and young infants, the reported increase in myocarditis with severe outcomes in neonates and infants associated with enterovirus infection is unusual.” It said that in the same hospital (covering the South Wales region) over the previous six years, “only one other similar case has been identified.” WHO assessed the public health risk as low, but added that in certain situations, it “may be advisable to close child-care facilities and schools to reduce the intensity of transmission.” However, the WHO took down the alert on Wednesday. The Epoch Times understands that this could be because some of the numbers were not correct. The WHO did not respond to The Epoch Times’ request for comment. Dr. Shamez Ladhani, Consultant Paediatrician at UKHSA, told The Epoch Times by email that “given a higher than average number of cases in Wales in the autumn/winter months in very young babies, UKHSA is investigating the situation in England to see if any similar cases have been observed here and whether there are any factors driving the increase in cases.” The UKHSA did not respond to questions about ruling out any links to the effects of the COVID-19 vaccine. Public Health Wales at the start of May announced that it was investigating a cluster of severe enterovirus infections with myocarditis occurring in very young babies from the South Wales region. The cases occurred from June 2022 with a peak in November 2022 involving babies under 28 days old. Ten babies have developed myocarditis within this cluster. One baby remains in hospital, eight are being managed as outpatients, and one baby has died. Consultant pathologist and HART member Dr. Clare Craig told The Epoch Times that there’s “a massive question about whether or not these babies or the mums are vaccinated.” HART is an organisation that was set up to share concerns about policy and guidance recommendations relating to the COVID-19 pandemic. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/restoring-america/community-family/nebraska-governor-signs-ban-abortion-and-child-transitions Nebraska governor signs ban on abortion and child transitions Nebraska became the latest state to enact bans on abortion and child gender transitions as Gov. Jim Pillen (R-NE) signed a dual measure Monday afternoon. Nebraska 's legislature passed the measure Friday, which will prohibit abortion at 12 weeks of pregnancy and ban genital and nongenital mutilation surgeries on children. The bill also gives the state's chief medical officer, Dr. Timothy Tesmer, the authority to determine restrictions on puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones. Pillen called child gender transitions "Lucifer at its finest" at the signing ceremony. "All children deserve a chance to grow and live happy, fruitful lives," Pillen said in a press release before the signing. "This includes pre-born boys and girls, and it includes children struggling with their gender identity. These kids deserve the opportunity to grow and explore who they are and want to be, and they can do so without making irreversible decisions that should be made when they are fully grown." While the abortion ban goes into effect immediately upon Pillen's signature, the ban on transgender procedures will go into effect on Oct. 1. The abortion ban includes exceptions for rape, incest, and instances in which the life of the mother is at risk. Eighty-six percent of abortions in Nebraska occur before 12 weeks, according to state statistics. Primary sponsor state Sen. Joni Albrecht, fighting through tears, said, "I look forward to the day when every child is protected from elective abortions in our state." Nebraska joins a growing list of states that have passed abortion restrictions since the overturn of Roe v. Wade. Twenty-seven states have attempted to pass such laws, but some states have been either held up by courts or hindered by a divided government. Last week, North Carolina and South Carolina took action to restrict abortion. From Nebraska to Texas we go… https://townhall.com/tipsheet/madelineleesman/2023/05/23/texas-bans-diversity-offices-at-colleges-n2623589 Texas Moves a Step Closer to Banning Diversity Programs in Higher Education On Monday, Texas lawmakers passed a bill to end Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) programs at state colleges and universities. If the bill were to become law, it would be the second state in the nation with such legislation, following Florida. According to The Hill, the measure requires the governors of each state university to ensure that there is no DEI office at the school and that preferential treatment is not given for “diversity hires.” Rep. John Kuempel, a Republican, said that “DEI is present in some form in almost every Texas campus” and that schools “must recruit the best people in every field regardless of race and gender,” according to the Dallas Morning News. The Texas House voted 83-60 in support of S.B. 17. The legislation heads back to the Senate, where it will decide to accept or deny changes made by members of the House. Last month, when the Senate passed its version of the bill, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick described the legislation as the “strongest pushback on woke policies in higher education.” “For far too long, academia has been poisoned by woke policies and faculty seeking to indoctrinate our students. Professors did not believe we would push back on their advances, but they were wrong. Students should be taught how to think critically, not what to think," Patrick said in a statement. https://freebeacon.com/energy/majority-of-united-states-faces-elevated-risk-of-summer-power-blackouts-amid-green-energy-push/ Majority of United States Faces 'Elevated Risk' of Summer Power Blackouts Amid Green Energy Push America's increased reliance on green energy in favor of coal and gas has a majority of the United States facing an "elevated risk" of summer power blackouts, according to a leading grid reliability watchdog. The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) last week published its 2023 summer reliability assessment, which found that two-thirds of North America could face power shortages this summer during periods of extreme heat. That vulnerability, the watchdog group said, stems from America's increase in green power generation and decrease in fossil fuel power plants. While coal and natural gas plants can be turned on and off at the flip of a switch, green alternatives such as wind and solar rely on favorable weather conditions to operate at full capacity. If those conditions aren't met, power demand can outpace supply. "The system is closer to the edge," NERC director of reliability assessment and performance analysis John Moura said last week. "More needs to be done." Moura is far from the only expert sounding the alarm on America's unreliable power grid. Both state and federal officials in recent weeks have warned that high summer temperatures, combined with low nightly winds, could bring power blackouts across the country. "I'm afraid to say it, but I think the United States is heading towards a catastrophic situation," Federal Energy Regulatory Commission member Mark Christie said during a May Senate hearing. Despite those warnings, President Joe Biden has moved forward with plans to accelerate U.S. coal plant retirements. With nearly half of America's coal power already set to disappear by 2030, Biden's Environmental Protection Agency earlier this month unveiled new standards that force coal and gas power plants to slash their carbon emissions by a whopping 90 percent between 2035 and 2040. In order to meet the near-impossible standards, those plants will have to spend big on infrastructure upgrades—costs that may prompt the plants to shut down rather than comply. "Coal is more than five times as dependable as wind and more than twice as dependable as solar when electricity demand is greatest," America's Power CEO Michelle Bloodworth said in a statement, "yet bad public policy and EPA regulations are forcing the closure of coal plants." In addition to his far-reaching fossil fuel regulations, Biden has spent hundreds of billions of dollars on tax breaks and subsidies aimed at increasing electric car use. And in April, Biden's Environmental Protection Agency announced a new rule that imposes strict tailpipe emission limits on vehicles sold—so strict that it effectively forces automakers to ensure that two-thirds of the cars they sell are electric by 2032. Those moves could also put strain on the nation's power grid. As more Americans plug in their cars instead of filling them up with gasoline, grids across the country will need to put out more power to keep up. The issue has already plagued some U.S. states—in September, for example, California urged electric car drivers to stop charging their vehicles due to power grid strain. Still, the ordeal did not stop state officials from moving full steam ahead with plans to outlaw gas-powered vehicles and eradicate fossil fuel power plants. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/house/mccarthy-warns-nowhere-near-deal-on-debt-ceiling McCarthy warns White House and GOP ‘nowhere near a deal’ on debt ceiling House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) warned Republican lawmakers that his team is “nowhere near a deal” with the White House on the debt ceiling, ramping up pressure on President Joe Biden just nine days before the default deadline. In a closed-door meeting with GOP lawmakers on Tuesday, McCarthy told members a compromise on the debt ceiling was still far off, reiterating his position that he would not increase spending or raise the debt ceiling without conditions. Republicans emerged from the meeting wary of negotiators’ progress, telling reporters the talks are not going well so far. As part of the negotiations, the White House proposed late last week to limit next year’s spending to 2023 levels — an idea that was rejected by Republicans, who wish to return to 2022 levels. McHenry and Rep. Garret Graves (R-LA), the top negotiators for McCarthy, emphasized that stance on Tuesday by calling on the White House to agree to cut spending. Meanwhile, some Republicans remain skeptical of Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen’s warnings that the country could default on its payments as soon as June 1, calling that date a manufactured deadline set by the Biden administration to accelerate a deal. Gaetz argued the United States is not at risk of missing its payments, noting the country has strong revenue that will continue coming in over the next few weeks. Instead, the Florida Republican said Yellen should appear before Congress to present “receipts and deposits” that prove the country is on track to default. McCarthy’s warning comes after the speaker met with Biden on Monday evening, marking the third meeting the two have held since restarting negotiations earlier this month. McCarthy called the meeting “productive” but noted the two are still far apart on finalizing a deal. Now for the rundown… https://thepostmillennial.com/breaking-suspect-in-custody-after-allegedly-crashing-u-haul-truck-into-barriers-near-white-house?utm_campaign=64487 On Monday night, the driver of a U-Haul truck was taken into custody after allegedly slamming into security barriers near the White House. According to Secret Service spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi, the truck crashed on the northern side of Lafayette Square at around 10 pm. Guglielmi said in a statement, "Shortly before 10:00 p.m. Monday, Secret Service Uniformed Division officers detained the driver of a box truck after the vehicle collided with security barriers on the north side of Lafayette Square at 16th Street." He added that there were no injuries to any Secret Service or White House personnel and that the crash is under investigation but that the preliminary investigation reveals the driver may have intentionally crashed into the barriers. https://thepostmillennial.com/uc-berkeley-holds-segregated-graduation-ceremony-for-black-students-only?utm_campaign=64487 The University of California Berkeley hosted a black-only graduation ceremony for its non-white students at Zellerbach Hall on Saturday. In March, UC Berkeley’s African American Studies Department announced they would be holding their annual “Black Graduation” ceremony for students in May. According to the announcement, “The Department of African American Studies plans on hosting our annual Black Graduation ceremony, which is open to all majors and degree programs across the campus." https://twitter.com/i/status/1660362211636969473 - Play Video https://redstate.com/mike_miller/2023/05/22/super-woke-target-partners-on-its-new-gay-pride-line-with-designer-who-insists-satan-loves-you-n749804 So let’s check them off. By “them,” I mean just the latest corporations to put their “woke” beliefs ahead of customer loyalty, profits, and shareholders: Disney, Nike, Bud Light, BlackRock, Ford, and Miller Lite. The complete list is long — and it just got longer with the addition of the super-woke Target Corporation. Target has partnered with UK-based Satanist designer Abprallen on its new “Pride” collection, which features a “Cure Transphobia” sweatshirt, which bears the message “Cure transphobia, not trans people,” and other related items. Did I mention that Abprallen insists “Satan loves you,” “Satan respects pronouns,” and other uplifting [sarc] trash for your shopping pleasure? As reported by Breitbart, Abprallen mixes its affinity for satanism with its pro-LGBT activism, boasting on its Instagram page: “Satan loves you and respects who you are; you’re important and valuable in this world and you deserve to treat yourself with love and respect.”

Entertaining, funny, and really educational. Loved it.Another fan focuses on this segment:Listening to Chris talk about goat porn and golden showers on Ted Cruz almost made me pee my pants! Absolutely hilarious.A listener dissents:I had to stop listening once it became clear that you and Chris seem to be of the opinion that the legacy media share equally with the 30-year-old disinformation industry in cleaving the American voters into hateful camps. While you did recognize that Rush was a pioneer in taking advantage of the abrogation of the Fairness Doctrine to voice his BS, you also blithely acknowledged that he was “talented entertainer.” Let's face facts: Adolph was full of hateful bile that led to the eventual destruction of Germany along with millions of innocents but the guy was really entertaining. The legacy media, for all of its faults and biases, is not equivalent to the collective disinformation industry. Wokeness does not equal lies, character assassination, conspiracy mongering, calls for the overthrow of the “deep state,” civil war, summary execution of suspected drug dealers, ad nauseam. Criticize the legacy media all you want, but don't equate them with Fox and its many copycats as part of the critique. Whataboutism is tiresome and lazy.If you want my view of the different kinds of media bias at play — and why the right is worse — this piece is a good overview. I make many distinctions. From a baseball fan:Are my ears playing tricks on me or did I just hear Chris Stirewalt attribute “Hit ‘em where they ain't” to Pee Wee Reese? If I did hear this, it's the worst piece of fake news this 72-year-old guy has heard on the Dishcast. Apparently that quote by Willie Keeler is commonly misattributed to Reese. Here's one more clip from the Stirewalt pod — on why the cult of Trump is so strong:Staying on the topic of Trump, a reader dissents:I was not planning to send you a second scathing email in two weeks, but here we are. Your latest column on Trump was surreal. “Guys, a wildfire is about to burn down all these houses. This is bad! But you must admit, the fire is beautiful! Look at the gracefully leaping orange-golden flames. Such flair and energy! It speaks to something deep inside me, I remember sitting by a campfire as a kid …“But yes, the fire is bad, so we must fight it using this beat-up old fire truck. God, I hate the truck! It's ugly and rusty, the paint is peeling, the engine makes a weird grinding noise, there's a coffee stain on the driver's seat. The truck is boring, just sitting there like a lump. No entertainment value at all! In a direct contrast between the fire and the truck, there will surely be some people who simply favor the shiny and pretty over the dull and old!“Anyway, uh, we ought to stop the fire before it burns down all these houses, so let's get inside this crappy truck, which I hate, and go fight the fire… even though the fire is lovely and exciting and fun to look at…” (you gaze into the flames, their reflection dancing in your eyes)I wan to insert that gif of Cher slapping Nick Cage's face in Moonstruck and yelling, “Snap out of it!” Yes, the fire truck certainly is beat-up and rusty, and I too wish for a newer and better model. But if you value the houses, and you recognize that they will burn unless enough people act, the right thing to say is, “Guys, let's get in the truck and go put out the f**king fire!”My core political objective right now is avoiding a second Trump term. How much clearer can I get? My concern with the loony left is both substantive on the issues, but also rooted in my view that they are empowering Trump, not weakening him. Another reader quotes me:“Trump is more likely than not returning to the White House as of now.” No offense, but have you not been paying attention for the last two years?

She is the author of Staying in the Game: The Playbook for Beating Workplace Sexual Harassment. 6. Her book offers guidance on navigating workplace sexual harassment. 7. Sexual harassment in the workplace is not just a women's issue; men can also be impacted.8. She offers tools and strategies for individuals to navigate and combat workplace harassment.9. Lawrence emphasizes the importance of having difficult conversations to break down barriers and improve communication. 10. She provides information on her consulting firm, Jennifer Brown Consulting, and how individuals can learn more about her and her work.Adrienne says we should all be aware that “There may have been things that occurred historically that our parents' generation, grandparents or even hundreds of years before had created that situation. And the legacy lives on today. I'm not responsible for that, but I am responsible for this relationship.”Given the essential nature of interpersonal relationships in the workplace, she says that understanding “you're not going to have all the answers, you're not going to see the landmines—but that's okay. When you step in it, there is an opportunity there to mend that relationship, to grow and to exercise greater self-awareness.”Too often, she says, people think of diversity too simply as being exclusively about race. She sees DEI as a broad umbrella covering a range of “isms,” including sexism, homophobia and transphobia. She sees sobriety status, religion and neurotype as also needing representation. “It's all of the little things about each one of us that makes us unique.”She sees The Walking Dead as a model for valuing diversity. Every member of the core cast had a unique skill that, combined with the others, allowed the group to fend off the zombies successfully. Earlier in her career, Adrienne took an on-air position with ESPN. After surviving sexual harassment there, she wrote Staying in the Game: The Playbook for Beating Workplace Sexual Harassment. “The book is the first of its kind guide, largely for employees to help people understand and navigate this form of bullying,” she says.Adrienne uses her superpower, her ability to have difficult conversations with people, to help her in her work.How to Develop the Ability to Have Difficult Conversations As a Superpower“One of the things I do is executive coaching and mediation,” Adrienne says. “Sometimes you might have people who are great at what they do, but when they come together, they clash, which is often the case when you have type A personalities, people who are go-getters.”She offers guidance for resolving conflicts and having difficult conversations.To ease conflict, it's essential to remove yourself from the equation. Centering yourself and worrying about how others perceive you can hinder progress. Instead, focus on the goal and recognize that other people's responses are not necessarily about you. By de-centering yourself, you can approach the situation with more power and effectiveness. Ask yourself, “What is my focus here?” and consider different dynamics to reach your goal. This mindset will allow you to do your best work.By following Adrienne's example and advice, you can develop the ability to have difficult conversations that enable you to resolve conflicts and grow as a human being, enabling you to do more good in the world.Guest-Provided ProfileAdrienne Lawrence (she/her):Vice President, Jennifer Brown ConsultingAbout Jennifer Brown Consulting: Workplace InclusionWebsite: www.jenniferbrownconsulting.comTwitter Handle: @jbcinclusionCompany Facebook Page:Other URL: www.adriennejlawrence.comBiographical Information: As an impactful workplace equity educator and devoted inclusion advocate, Adrienne Lawrence does more than just talk.

As we try to save legions of indoctrinated youth, we can demonstrate that there is genuine hope that can liberate them from their learned doctrine of despair. There are things more precious than safety. Loyalty is better than logic. Hope is better than despair. Creation is better than destruction. Freedom is better than Utopia. Life is better than death. Most of all, as we are each our own worst problem, every step towards fixing our lives start with us, ourselves. If we each are responsible for the mess we might have made of our life, we are capable of changing our ways. We are each rarely doomed by anything stronger than our own despair.Would you like to share your thoughts with Ralph?

Regardless of where you fall on the political spectrum, activism and DEI work are actually extensions of one another. For us at #TeamIIP, we know that historically excluded or marginalized groups simply *can't* check their identities at the door when entering a professional workplace. To those we've spoken with and worked alongside, DEI is not just about fighting for equal opportunities in the workplace — it's about their lives and their livelihood. But that doesn't mean that implementing DEI policies (such as inclusive language) at work isn't without its complications. One one side, we've witnessed facing pushback over the years from those who think that the use of inclusive language is tone policing. On the other end of the spectrum, we've witnessed those who all too freely shame someone for their mistakes (sometimes fellow DEI practitioners) when the audience fails to meet an ever-evolving standard for inclusive language. Inspired by our 2020 episode with Michelle MiJung Kim, we revisit the idea of inclusive language three years on and discuss: What inclusive language is, what it is not, and who it ultimately benefits How implementing inclusive language can be done with intentionality (without gate-keeping or shaming others in the process) Why it's less about saying the “right thing” and more about respecting the nuances of identity that language brings Our take on how to guide inclusive language in 2023 for more equitable workplaces In This Episode: [7:41] The origin and evolution of the word “woke”. [12:42] What is inclusive language and why does it matter? [15:36] How are people responding to inclusive language guidelines? [31:49] How to be more inclusive in day-to-day communication.

On today's episode of the "Helping Families Be Happy" podcast, host, Ashley Marie Mireles, Director of Sales and Marketing for Families Publishing, author, and DEI leader. Today Ashley is going to talk to Heidi Poelman, author of Women in Science Who Changed the World and other Courageous People books. Episode Highlights: 01:02: Today Ashley and Heidi are going to discuss the creation of women in science teaching the world. 01:46: Science is so interesting and so fun, and we have kind of an issue in our country where a lot of the times we give girls the message that science and mathematics and technology are more masculine subjects, more subjects for boys, says Heidi. 03:01: Heidi talks about a few amazing women that she came across while doing research for her book. 03:50: Heidi mentions Janaki Amal, who is an Indian scientist who did a lot to create a plant that could grow sugar in India because, before that time, they couldn't. 04:00: Wang Zhenyi learned more about lunar eclipses and what a cool girl at the time, people thought that lunar eclipses were the cause of angry gods, but she thought otherwise. She learned that the moon, the earth, and the sun all interacted to create something. 05:06: As per Heidi it is really upsetting to see some of the very strong and knowledgeable women getting noticed. 07:01: Heidi talks about her inspiration and from where she gets it. 07:33: Heidi talks about the first female president of the New York Cancer Society, and she was also the 1st woman and only African American on the board. 08:30: One of the big takeaways that we are getting from here is that children and just people, in general, need good examples to look up as long as you have someone inspiring you or you have something inspiring you, you can keep moving forward. 09:12: As part of the series, the first book that Heidi wrote was just a book about a few people that she loved and looked up to who did courageous things, and who wanted to make a difference in the world. 11:04: Heidi shares how she loves quotes and she also shares a quote that she wrote before the podcast. 12:25: Heidi explains why she mentioned Marie Curie in her book. 13:43: Heidi's goal is to teach young girls about perseverance and curiosity and just wonder and discovery and problem-solving, and just remind them that the things that they do make a difference and that even one person can be part of making the world a better place. 3 Key Points: Heidi shares why in her book she has featured women that aren't normally featured in kids' books, women from around the world, and women who maybe people haven't heard of before. Heidi shares how she wanted to inspire young girls from a very early age. Heidi talks about her series of books and the idea behind writing those. Tweetable Quotes: "It's not necessarily the names and the facts, but this idea that curiosity and questions and problem-solving are all these really great values that we want to show to these young girls. How many times we talk to our little girls about, hey, let's go outside and just study bugs, or have you ever asked hey, do you know that there was a woman behind sending the first man to orbit the earth in space?" – Heidi "Jane Wright was fairly young she saw that cancer was a problem, and so she set her mind on doing something. So she just started researching. She decided that she wanted to be a doctor." - Heidi "I worked on a book about animals, famous animals who have made a difference and just had fun stories." – Heid "It's an important and fun time to work with young kids and to tell them stories of real heroes and not just knowing their names and what they did, but knowing what we can learn from them." - Heidi Resources Mentioned Helping Families Be Happy Podcast Apple Familius.com Heidi Poelman Ashley Marie Mireles: LinkedIn Podcast Editing

Last year, Floyd Lee Locums led a program for 300 days of community service in 300 days with their employees.

Winfluence - The Influence Marketing Podcast
Without question the last 2-3 years have lit a fire under businesses, brands, governments and individuals with regard to how to think of and interact with diversity. In fact, the acronym of the early 2020s has to be D-E-I … Diversity, Equity and Inclusivity. While that refers to far more than just race, a good portion of the conversation around DEI circles around people of color. In the influence marketing space, that conversation has driven progress around the pay gap from white to black or brown creators, representation in influence marketing campaigns and sensitivities for businesses and brands to ensure they are not just checking a box, but changing behaviors. Without question, the conversations have led to progress. And that's a very good thing. As an aside, if you don't think progress in this category of our world is a good thing, I'd rather you didn't listen to this podcast. Still, there's much more progress to be made. I've made it a point to come back to the topic of diversity, equity and inclusivity, the conversations around race and how we can collaborate and cooperate more than not. Why? Because these conversations are what will continue to move us forward as an industry, a community and a species. Monique Russell happened upon me recently. She's a dynamic speaker, trainer and communications guru who hosts a podcast of her own that focuses on diversity and inclusion and understanding black cultures. Her perspective is that it is incumbent upon us all – regardless of color or race – to do our own diversity, equity and inclusivity work to build unity. The show is called Bridge 2 U. It is now a member of the Marketing Podcast Network and a sister show to Winfluence in that regard. As such, I asked my new podcast partner of sorts to join us on the show. Today we're going to talk to Monique Russell about communications, including the practice of influence marketing and marketing overall, through the lens of diversity. And you know me … I'm just dumb enough to ask the hard questions in hopes we land at an answer that bridges those gaps. This episode of Winfluence is presented by CIPIO.ai where you can create a consistent flow of authentic user-generated content to fuel paid, earned, shared and owned campaigns that set your content marketing on fire! One of the main methods of doing that is by shifting your influencer marketing focus to a Community Influence Marketing one. That's where you discover the influential voices in your own community of customers, fans and followers, and partner with them to create authentic content that recommends your brand. Download CIPIO.ai's new ebook called The Marketer's Guide to Community Influence Marketing. It's a step-by-step manual that shows you how to do it. The result is a more cost-efficient way to engage creators and drive word-of-mouth marketing while capturing better-performing content for your paid and owned social media efforts.

“America is a melting pot” gets said a lot. But that implies that we're all melting down our differences and becoming the same thing. Instead, we might think of America as a salad: many different cultures, all existing together in the same bowl. Our diversity is our strength, and that's what we're celebrating today.Our Troublemaker of the day is Erika Marquardt, a high school student in Ohio who helped plan her school's diversity event called “Many Cultures, One Bison.” Erika shares why it was important to her to celebrate diversity, what the response was like from the adults in her community, and why it's important to start these discussions at home. Just like adults taking DEI trainings at their workplaces, the work doesn't begin and end on one day; it's a mindset and a lifetime of learning.After that, Rachel sits down with Liz Sohyeon Kleinrock, an anti-racism and anti-bias educator. She and Rachel chat about some misconceptions about DEI trainings, what it really means to be an ally, and how her own personal experiences and identities have shaped her work. They also talk about AAPI Heritage Month and celebrate some amazing Asian-American women in history. To learn more about Liz's work, you can visit her website at teachandtransform.org.Finally, Amanda, Rachel and Jasmine raise a glass to community events, Sherrod Brown, and The Renew Democracy Initiative in this episode's “Toast to Joy.”It's hard to believe, but we've recorded almost 100 episodes of The Suburban Women Problem. So to celebrate, we're hosting a live virtual event with our very first guest, rockstar historian Heather Cox Richardson! The event will be happening on Monday May 15th and you can purchase tickets here.For a transcript of this episode, please email email@example.com.

Not only is DEI hiring creating bureaucracy bloat in higher education country-wide, it is beginning to fundamentally alter our institutions. One place where the erosion of excellence is already apparent? Our legal institutions – just last year, 12 Federal Judges boycotted hiring clerks from Yale Law School (some of the crème de la crème of legal education) due to the aspiring lawyers' inability to practice good faith, unbiased law. And no wonder: The Federalist Society at Stanford Law School hosted Judge Kyle Duncan of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals – he was shouted down by a group of students. Our guest Ilya Shapiro was nearly fired for tweeting about Biden's Supreme Court nominations. We are, as a nation, beginning to forget… this is a representative democracy. We are not governed by a mob. Free speech is a foundational tenet of the Constitution that defines this country and its institutions. College sophomoric groupthink on social issues is one thing; but the next generation of Supreme Court prosecutors already radicalized enough that they are being barred by current sitting judges? That's quite another problem. Ilya Shapiro is a senior fellow and director of constitutional studies at the Manhattan Institute. Previously he was executive director and senior lecturer at the Georgetown Center for the Constitution, and before that a vice president of the Cato Institute, director of Cato's Robert A. Levy Center for Constitutional Studies, and publisher of the Cato Supreme Court Review. Shapiro is the author of Supreme Disorder: Judicial Nominations and the Politics of America's Highest Court.Download the transcript here.

Relatable with Allie Beth Stuckey
Today we're joined by Leonydus Johnson, political commentator and author of "Raising Victims: The Pernicious Rise of Critical Race Theory," to discuss where our country is headed when it comes to how we deal with race. We discuss his accidental fall into the political sphere after realizing the lies of the Left. We talk about why people who claim to be apolitical tend to vote leftward and explain why the ideas of the Left in theory sound so appealing to the unengaged person. We also discuss the rise of BLM and social justice bullying and the real definition of critical race theory and DEI. And Leonydus shares his definition of color-blindness and explains his argument for moving to a post-racial society. --- Timecodes: (00:55) Accidentally falling into politics (03:46) Why do apolitical people lean to the left (05:30) Obama and the shift of mainstream opinion / BLM (18:10) Critical race theory (28:20) Reasons for disparities (35:06) Equality of opportunity / equity (46:44) Colorblindness --- Today's Sponsors: A'Del — go to adelnaturalcosmetics.com and enter promo code "ALLIE" for 25% off your first order!

We're coming around the bend and heading into summer, but, before that, we've got too many episodes to count without using all of your fingers. Special guests Dr. Claudia Dozier and Dr. Sarah Lechago will be joining us to talk about applications of synchronous reinforcement and research on diversity, equity, and inclusion coming out of the BADIE Lab. In between those discussions we look at a variety of angles on mand training and explore some behavior assessments we didn't know existed. Finally, we get very skeptical about the world in our latest book club reviewing Calling Bullshit. All this and a puppy joins the show for better ratings.

Oklahoma is taking a lead on school choice programs and resisting far-left ideology in classrooms across the state. “It is amazing how aggressive the Biden administration is with this radical agenda towards our schools,” Ryan Walters, Oklahoma's state superintendent of public instruction, says. When he came into office, Walters says he told staffers there, “We're not doing diversity, equity, and inclusion. We're not doing that here."The leftist agenda in schools has gone well beyond DEI instruction, and now the Biden administration is considering changing the definition of sex in Title IX to include gender identity and sexual orientation, opening the door wide for biological boys and men to compete in girls and women's sports and to use their restrooms and locker rooms. “We've already submitted comment to the Biden administration and told them, 'We're suing you if you move down this road,'” Walters said. Walters joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to explain the ways Oklahoma is fighting against the Left's efforts to influence the next generation in the classroom and to discuss the state's aggressive action to implement school choice programs.
