Olanike Ayomide-Mensah is the founder of Mosaic Consulting which works with organisations to achieve greater workplace equity through diversity and inclusion strategies that nurture a true mosaic of talent. Having grown up between Nigeria and America, and now living in Ghana, West Africa, Olanike has lived and worked at the intersection of difference herself and experienced first hand how power drives the human impulse to fear what is different or unknown. Her heightened awareness of unfairness means she was often the first person to start the conversation around equity and formulated an approach to DEI that starts by looking at how workplace systems are contributing to inequity. In this episode she shares what organisations and leaders can do to create more equity - from recruitment to belonging and career development.

Depuis le festival Rio Loco, leçon de musique highlife avec Emmanuel Ofori, le bassiste et leader du groupe Santrofi, un combo ghanéen composé de huit musiciens hors pair, bien décidés à donner un nouveau souffle à la musique de leurs illustres pairs (E.T Mensah et Ebo Taylor en tête). Attention, groove surpuissant ! Le Ghana, ce pays d'Afrique de l'Ouest situé au bord du golfe de Guinée, entre le Togo et la Côte d'Ivoire, fut le premier état d'Afrique subsaharienne à se libérer du joug colonial. C'était en 1957, sous la houlette du président Kwame Nkrumah. Une musique, le highlife, un mélange de traditions musicales locales matinées de calypso et de jazz, accompagna cette époque. Et c'est le musicien E.T. Mensah qui en fut le pionnier. Aujourd'hui, le groupe Santrofi, qui doit son nom à un oiseau mythologique au chant puissant, a décidé de lui donner un nouveau souffle. Histoire de rappeler à la jeune génération que le highlife a été un élément primordial dans la construction de la musique moderne africaine qui inspira notamment l'afrobeat du voisin nigérian Fela Kuti. Résultat : avant même la sortie de leur premier album, Alewa, en 2020, ses huit musiciens hors pair avaient déjà enflammé les plus grands festivals d'Europe à coups de riffs enivrants, de percussions surpuissantes et d'une généreuse section de cuivres portée par d'irrésistibles harmonies vocales. Alors que le vent d'autan, ce vent typique du sud-ouest de la France, s'est levé et que les groupes du soir balancent non loin sur la grande scène du festival Rio Loco, le bassiste et leader du groupe Santrofi, Emmanuel Ofori, nous attend attablé en bord de Garonne, à l'ombre des arbres. Mon objectif : lui soutirer la recette de cette véritable machine à danser ! SessionLab par Hortense Volle : une conversation en toute intimité et en audio 3D (son spatialisé). Un podcast à écouter, de préférence, au casque.

Hillary Mensah is here to talk about overcoming being bullied as a child, her experience of being a black woman, losing her Father, turning that pain into beauty and becoming a lawyer, and eventually a future congresswoman. We talk about having faith over fear in life. She says that wearing independence as a badge of honor strips femininity and ability to ask for help and be vulnerable. Therefore, Hillary competes in beauty pageants for Miss Massachusetts USA to take back her femininity while pursuing her career in law. We chat about feminine and masculine energy while dating and open up about how our past relationships really shaped us into who we are today.

On today's episode of the As Told By Nomads podcast, Tayo is joined by Akua Nyame-Mensah, a certified executive and leadership coach who helps leaders best focus their time and energy. From Burkina Faso and Ghana to the United States, Akua grew up on 4 continents and developed quite the distinctive world view as a result. Coming into her own identity and studying the diverse range of blackness, she not only began to value introspection, but also to reckon with her deep love for varying perspectives and their great importance. Nyame-Mensah made use of her multicultural background and this desire and ability to empathize through her work as a leadership coach, and today she talks about just that. Coach Akua acknowledges that people learn differently and focuses intensely on how she can best communicate her expertise, find new definitions for success, and embrace diversity. Most importantly though, Akua has used her difference as a coach to make a difference, and she continues to encourage others to embrace theirs every day.

In Nana Mensah's beautifully realized feature film debut, QUEEN OF GLORY, Sarah Obeng (Nana Mensah), a doctoral student at Columbia University, a doctoral student at Columbia University, is weeks away from following her very married boyfriend to Ohio when her mother dies suddenly. Her inheritance? A small, but beloved, Christian bookstore in the Pelham Parkway section of the Bronx where she was raised in the tight-knit Ghanian immigrant community. Tasked with planning a culturally respectful funeral befitting the family matriarch, Sarah must juggle the expectations of her loving yet demanding family while navigating the reappearance of her estranged father all while grappling with what to do with the bookstore. Aided by an only-in-New York ensemble of Eastern European neighbors, feisty African aunties and a no-nonsense ex-con co-worker, Sarah faces her new responsibilities while figuring out how to remain true to herself. Director / writer / lead actor Nana Mensah joins us for a conversation on her belated decision to tackle her multi-hyphenated roles in making the film, spotlighting Ghanian culture and assembling a very talented cast of actors able to do justice to the poignant portrayals that lift Queen of Glory into the realm of something truly special.
