How To Speak Your Truth

Tiffany Yu is on a mission to elevate disability pride. Through the work of her social enterprise Diversability, as well as her social media platforms, speaking, and writing, Tiffany is working not just to lift the stigma about disability, but to celebrate it. In this episode, Tiffany shares her own disability origin story, and together we discuss what it would look like to go from living in a supremacist society (where a certain way of being is the “right” way to be”) to truly living the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion. And it's not as pie-in-the-sky impossible as you might think… sometimes it just involves stepping up to cut someone's steak.

This is a special, if somewhat bittersweet episode. It marks the final official podcast with our own Danny Crichton, who is off to other pastures in short order. Danny stepped in when we lost a host a few years back, and has been both a staple and a pillar of the show since. We're going to miss the ever-loving heck out of him.But the show must go on, so we spent this episode discussing issues core to our remit: The venture capital market, startups, and the interplay between each.Natasha and Danny and Alex and Chris got together for this particular Wednesday edition of Equity, the part of the week when we niche down to a single topic and discuss it at length.This time 'round we tackled the very small of whether today's pace of venture capital investment is sustainable, and whether the current structure of venture capital funds will survive. It was the right time to do so, given that:Tiger is reloading with even more capital. Danny noted that its rising asset base is a good indicator of just where things are today.Venture capital is at all-time highs. Natasha and Alex riffed through the numbers, noting just how crazy things have become.And as we were collecting our notes, Sequoia announced (after Primack scooped them) that they are revolutionizing their firm into a new sort of vehicle.We also discussed the unicorn traffic jam, which gave Alex a chance to jump atop his favorite hobby horse one more time.With more money than ever bouncing around startup-land, the question of whether the sums, and their resulting valuations, make any sense is a conversation that we are not done with. But we hope that after this short podcast, you are at least up to speed.Bon voyage, Danny. We love you. And a regular shoutout to the folks who have helped host Equity in the past: Kate Clark, Katie Roof, Matthew Lynley, and Connie Loizos.

There is a lot of talk about Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in talent acquisition, but when you dig below the surface, the amount of practical action happening doesn't live up to the promises made. A few weeks ago long time friend of the podcast Bas Van De Hatred introduced me to one of the most inspiring recruiters I've spoken to for a long time. Eugène van den Hemel helps employers recruit talent from communities that are historically underrepresented in the job market. In the last few years, he has been doing some pioneering work helping to connect refugees with employment opportunities and, in so doing, opening employers' eyes to an incredible pool of talent.

Today, I'm excited to once again be sharing a replay of one of the Coffee Talks I hosted during the 2021 NRPA Annual Conference back in September. As you may know, last week NRPA released a new resource – the Equity Language Guide. We know that words matter and that language has the power to uplift as well as marginalize – but sometimes finding the “right” words to use can be difficult. The guide serves as a glossary of terms to help park and recreation professionals develop a common language around diversity, equity and inclusion. It also provides guidance to help people become familiar with terms they may not be aware of and best practices for making your writing accessible. I highly encourage you to download the guide and consider the ways you can begin using more inclusive language. With that being said, I thought replaying my Coffee Talk with Autumn Saxton-Ross, NRPA's vice president of education and chief equity officer would be relevant for today's episode. We discussed Autumn's first year with NRPA, how she's been approaching NRPA's equity work in the field of parks and recreation, and how NRPA is continuing to center equity in all that we do. Please note this conversation was recorded prior to the release of the Equity Language Guide, so Autumn describes it as an upcoming resource – but, you can access it here now. You'll also notice that Autumn and I ask listeners to share ideas in the “discussion forum” throughout the conversation – since the discussion forums were part of the original Coffee Talk at the conference, I'd invite you to leave your ideas in the comments below, share them with me on our Open Space Radio Instagram page, or email them to me at openspace@nrpa.org. I hope you enjoy this conversation, and I hope it inspires you to continue to center equity in all that you do, as well. You'll also learn: How we can ensure that parks and recreation is accessible and inclusive for the whole How NRPA is supporting its members in achieving more equitable outcomes in their communities. Small, but impactful, ways you can begin implementing more equitable policies at your agency. What resources and opportunities NRPA members can expect in the future. How you can get involved in the conversations around developing equity-related resources for the field, and more!

Hello, and welcome to the Women Leaders podcast! I'm Patti Phillips, CEO of Women Leaders in College Sports. Today I'm sharing an uplifting conversation with Sam Rapoport, the Senior Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at the National Football League. Sam started playing football at age 12 in Canada, ultimately rising to play for Team Canada and pro tackle football teams. By the end of college, she knew she wanted to work in pro football. Sam landed an internship with the NFL by pitching herself as a quarterback who could deliver a ball 386 miles—from Montreal to New York City. Sam still recommends finding ways to stand out. In two stints with the NFL, Sam has brought significant change to the league, spearheading programming to retain, develop, and promote qualified diverse candidates into the football operations pipeline at NFL clubs and the league office. Rapoport created the Women's Careers in Football Forum in 2017, which served to inspire and connect qualified women to football operations positions in professional and college football programs. As a result, 82 female coaching, scouting, and operations candidates have been hired in the three-year period, a record number. By developing strong relationships and giving people reasons to believe in her, Sam forged a unique path in the NFL and proposed bold new initiatives. Sam tells us that sometimes, doing something new or different might not be well-received. Figuring things out and proving her credibility helped remove some of the obstacles and has created truly impactful change. Don't miss a moment of this conversation! And remember, we are Women Leaders!

On this episode of Fierce Lab, Tara talks with Keely Cat-Wells, an entrepreneur and disability advocate who founded C Talent, a talent agency that represents deaf and disabled artists, athletes, and influencers. Keely is also on Forbes 30 under 30 and the advisory board of Lady Gaga's Born This Way Foundation. In their conversation, Keely discusses taking risks, handling pushback, the issues of ableism, and her inspiration for founding C Talent. She also talks about invisible disabilities, disclosure, and her mission to eliminate section 14(c) of the Fair Labor Standards Act, which allows companies to pay people with disabilities a subminimum wage. Keely's background and founding C Talent When Keely was 17, she became disabled. After an extended hospital stay, she realized the world was no longer built with her in mind. Keely, a former dancer, began representing talent and moved to LA. At one point, she lost a job because of ableism, defined as the discrimination or prejudice against disabled people. This inspired her to found C Talent, a talent management company that represents high-profile deaf and disabled artists, athletes, and influencers, with the goal of normalizing disabled people as experts in subjects beyond disability. Taking risk Though Keely says her move to LA was a huge risk, she said she had nothing else to lose. As a result, Keely is more calculated in taking risks; when you know what you want, where you want to go, and what has happened in the past, you are better prepared for all the possible outcomes. Handling pushback Keely wishes that she initially would have been more aware that not everyone would agree with her goal of making sizable change. She's still learning how to better handle conflict and people that challenge her, including those who have made comments denying her identity by assuming she is making up her experiences of being disabled. Keely hopes that people will learn to better embrace the needs of others and be less quick to judge. C Talent is working with talent to create roles and campaigns and pitching ideas to big brands and companies. Even though some companies have a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion team, often only 2% of the team include disability in their agenda. Invisible disabilities Keely and Tara also talk about invisible disabilities and the difficulty and importance of disclosure. Keely says that disclosing an invisible disability can be a big and scary conversation, but invisible disabilities should be recognized and properly accommodated so that people can achieve their full potential. Employers should be encouraged to ask all employees about their access requirements and establish more inclusive environments. Section 14(c) from the Fair Labor Standards Act Keely is working to raise awareness and challenge section 14(c) of the Fair Labor Standards Act, which allows companies to pay disabled people a subminimum wage. She states that due to 14(c), currently 300,000 Americans are legally being paid $3 an hour or less. She aims to eliminate this policy and to achieve equity in employment.

Jill Savitt, CEO for the National Center of Civil and Human Rights, joins the Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio podcast to discuss the center's exhibits and the importance of advocating for civil and human rights. Savitt joins hosts Carol Morgan and Todd Schnick for the Around Atlanta segment. Savitt, involved with the museum for the last 10 years, became the CEO of the center two years ago. Before there was a physical building to house the center, Savitt curated the human rights gallery, an exhibit on the top floor that showcases human rights around the globe. “It's such a delight to be able to come to Atlanta for this role. I love it. It's a fantastic city,” said Savitt. "Our museum is really a backbone because [Atlanta] is the birthplace of civil rights and the hometown of Dr. King. We bring all of that storytelling to life in our museum.” The center is both a museum and a civil rights institution that centers around three stories. The first is the story of the U.S. civil rights movement titled “Rolls Down Like Water,” highlighting the narratives of those that many know as well as unknown heroes. “Spark of Conviction,” the human rights gallery, links the civil rights movements of the fifties and sixties to the nonviolent human rights movements throughout the world in an immersive and dynamic experience. From large-scale world events such as the fall of the Berlin Wall to Tiananmen Square, the exhibit introduces viewers to the world's human rights defenders taking up the cause of human dignity within their own societies. Through several dynamic installations, the experience defines human rights, its origins and how they are enforced. There are also exhibits that focus on the greatest champions of human rights as well as some of the biggest perpetrators of human rights abuse, many of whom got away with their crimes. The museum's third permanent exhibit centers around the papers and artifacts of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Named “Voice to the Voiceless,” the gallery is a sacred place to many and offers non-scholars a space to see the papers, handwriting and personal effects of Dr. King. The papers are rotated and showcased based on a particular theme and the current one, “Beloved Community,” allows visitors to see the famed leader's papers discussing the importance of community. Outside of the facility, the center hosts programs for schools K-12 to teach human rights history as well as a program for law enforcement that focuses on the history of human rights, law enforcement's role in history and its responsibility to keep democratic societies healthy. There is also a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Training Program offered to workforces looking to become more inclusive. There are also smaller programs that focus on LGBTQ+ rights and human trafficking. Savitt said, “Our overarching concern, our mantra, is to help people tap their own power to protect their rights and the world around them.” Equal Dignity at Work consists of seven different modules designed for workplaces to breach crucial topics, including workplace bias, industry trends, diversity and inclusion. The brave conversations allow participants to recognize prejudices and discuss them. The programs do not touch on recruitment, pipelining or nurturing talent but focus on connecting history to the present moment and breaking down barriers. In the United States, the current political atmosphere makes it hard for many to discuss opposing views without leading to a larger argument. These brave conversations promote grace and acknowledge that while people may say unintentionally hurtful things, educating participants on rephrasing questions to keep topics open and calm is beneficial for exposing others to opposing arguments and educating in a healthy and respectful manner. “Workplaces are some of the most integrated places we have and are the perfect places to practice pluralism. It's the place to talk to people who are different than you,

When do white folks learn they're white? And how do they start to understand the scope of benefits that whiteness affords them? For Jessie Daniels, these uncomfortable questions are only the beginning.Jessie Daniels is a Faculty Associate at the Harvard Berkman Klein Center, a research associate at the Oxford Internet Institute, and a professor of Sociology, Critical Social Psychology, and Africana Studies at Hunter College and The Graduate Center at CUNY. She is a world-renowned expert on Internet manifestations of racism, and her latest book Nice White Ladies: The Truth about White Supremacy, Our Role in It, and How We Can Help Dismantle It is available now from Seal Press.I imagine there are people who are going to read this book and throw it against the wall. And that's okay. But I would just encourage you to pick it up again, after you've thrown it against the wall the first time, and keep reading and sit with the discomfort and also ask yourself, why are you uncomfortable? I would argue that, to the extent that white people are uncomfortable hearing what I have to say, and white women in particular, is because we're holding on to whiteness in some way. We want that to not be a problem. We want that to mean that we're innocent, that we're beautiful, that we're better than other people. And it just doesn't mean that. Let's let go of that idea of whiteness. —Jessie Daniels, author, Nice White LadiesWe talk about:How feminism and white supremacy often coexist and how “gender-only feminism” always ignores raceWhite women's complicity in slavery and its lasting effectsThe “meme-ification” of the Karen archetype and the real dangers they poseThe path Jessie took to discovering her own whitenessHow to divest from the culture of whitenessThe power, and necessity, of sitting in discomfortPlus: in this week's You've Got This, Sara discusses how white women hold onto whiteness in the workplace, and the hidden meaning in terms like “professionalism,” "culture fit,” and "niceness.” For more on reckoning with whiteness in your workplace, head on over to https://www.activevoicehq.com/podcast.Links:Jessie Daniels' websiteNice White LadiesRacism ReviewThey Were Her Property by Stephanie Jones-RogersCuster Died for Your Sins by Vine Deloria, Jr.The Red Record by Ida B.
