Today I'm joined by Renee Davis, Duolingo's Director of Recruiting. In this episode, we address the issues with the old method of targeting a specific subset of students, and how to stay up to date with each new generation. We dive into how to improve the graduation numbers of underrepresented student populations, and debate the merits of recruiting through TikTok! Renee's belief that a recruitment program is about what the students can gain from it has already proven its worth, with seven out of eight interns accepting their offers to come back to work, and she takes me through how she managed this impressive feat. From virtual yoga to why three-year recruitment plans are ideal, join me in a lively discussion about changing the way we find talent. Key Points From This Episode: An introduction to Renee Davis, the driving force behind Duolingo's modern recruiting operation. Why recruiting is about more than just meeting hiring goals. Tackling problems in university recruiting to impact students' lives. The challenges and rewards of going virtual. Using virtual events to improve outreach. What platforms you can use to improve your recruitment programs. How to ensure there is value for the students and not just the recruiters. The Duolingo Thrive Program: building a sense of belonging in underrepresented students. Tweetables: “Whoever you're talking to, it's all about making sure there's value for them.” — Renee Davis [0:14:32] “We are only as good as the students who are in the programs and are graduating with the degrees.” — Renee Davis [0:17:30] “The long view is getting the problem at root and trying to solve it over time versus constantly trying to build a solution at top of funnel for just in time hiring.” — Renee Davis [0:24:02] Links Mentioned in Today's Episode: Renee Davis on LinkedIn Gather Town Talk Talent to Me
In this episode, I am going to focus specifically on how Positive behavior support (PBS) can be effective for our kids. Whether it is utilizing a Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) or a Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP) or whatever type of plan your child's education program or school team puts together. The point is that it can absolutely improve your child's behavior across settings when both the family and the school team are working collaboratively together as a team. When these supports are implemented and over time, they can have lasting benefits both at school and at home. These plans when developed can include many different components. Here is what we do know, we know that proactive strategies reduce the likelihood of problem behavior and instead they prompt positive behaviors. The goal of any positive behavior support plan is that it rewards our kids by teaching them how to self-manage their own behavior over time. www.notyouraverageautismmom.com

Mike Colleran is the corporate vice president at Nissan Motor Company, a role he was appointed to in June 2020. Previously, he was the chairman of INFINITI Motor Company and was responsible for managing the brand, business operations, and all marketing/sales for INFINITI globally. What we discuss with Mike Colleran: Mike talks about the shifts that he's observed during his 30+ year career in the automotive industry. The most impactful shift being the transformation from internal combustion engines to electric vehicles. Where manufacturers once employeed mechanical engineers, there is a shift to chemical engineers. The transformation began to accelerate back in 2008, when companies moved from high over heads to more streamlined business operations. Mike explains that the highest priority for retail dealers over the next 3, 5, and 7 years needs to be delivering a world-class customer experience. In a world where fixed costs add pressure, the challenge will be delivering that incredible experience while managing fixed costs. How far ahead do automakers look to the future? Nissan has been preparing for electrification for years when it released the first iteration of the Nissan Leaf. As a retired Marine Captian, Mike shares how the marine's motto of "Semper Fi" has impacted the way he leads, builds, and trusts his team. How are automakers seeking to mitigate chip shortages from happening again in the future? Are OEMs conspiring to get rid of the dealer network? -- Like this show?

President Biden's January 2021 Executive Order, Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad, emphasizes the urgency of taking action to build climate resiliency and specifically calls for the inclusion of nature-based solutions. Combined with the $1 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act approved by the US Senate in August, 2021, which describes major infrastructure projects to be undertaken, these represent an unprecedented opportunity to incorporate Engineering With Nature approaches into infrastructure policy and projects. Our guests are Todd Bridges, Senior Research Scientist for Environmental Science with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and National Lead for EWN; Sarah Murdock, Director of US Climate Resilience and Water Policy at The Nature Conservancy; Justin Ehrenwerth, President and CEO of The Water Institute of the Gulf; and Mindy Simmons, Senior Policy Advisor, Aquatic Ecosystem Restoration Business Line Manager at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The evolution of infrastructure policy can be seen, in part, through our experience with storms. As Todd notes, “following Hurricane Katrina, our collective focus was risk reduction. After Hurricane Sandy, the focus expanded to include resilience. Those events, separated by several years, intensified the dialogue, in a positive way, on engineering with nature and nature-based solutions.” Work done by The Nature Conservancy (TNC) in Cape May, New Jersey before Hurricane Sandy demonstrates the importance of natural infrastructure to storm risk reduction. Working with USACE, an ecosystem restoration project was undertaken that included holistic dune restoration, hydrologic improvements, and habitat restoration. According to Sarah, “before the project there was a history of flooding of the communities behind the preserve area. After Sandy, the dune restoration stood up and those communities only experienced negligible flooding.” The Water Institute of the Gulf (TWIG) was founded in response to Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Justin describes the opportunity for incorporating natural and nature-based solutions “to create a blended approach that addresses the need for built infrastructure, married with natural infrastructure. For example, levees and flood walls blended with barrier islands and marsh to create a multiple lines of defense strategy that ultimately yields not only economic benefits through the protection of property and businesses and communities, but also social and environmental benefits.” Significant hurricane and storm events have clearly shaped policy at the federal level, but as Mindy notes, the Corps has been implementing engineering with nature solutions for over a century, describing the Yolo Bypass, designed by the Corps in the 1930s that helps divert flood water near Sacramento, California, while also providing valuable fish and wildlife habitat. From Mindy's perspective, “hurricanes over the past century have brought a lot of attention to the Corps' capabilities and Congress has provided direction through Water Resource Development Acts (WRDA) requiring the Corps to explicitly consider natural and nature-based solutions for flood risk management, hurricane and storm damage reduction and ecosystem restoration.” The benefits of employing natural and nature- based infrastructure is significant. Our guests believe that expanded value can be “unlocked” by including nature-based solutions, or natural infrastructure, as an integrated part of infrastructure investment. According to Sarah, “if we equate nature as a form of infrastructure, we can unlock the trillions of dollars that this world spends and invests in more traditional infrastructure and really think equally of nature as delivering a lot of the services that are essential.” Measuring those benefits is the focus of our discussion in Episode 2. As Todd says, “Our ability to describe, define substantiate the benefits and the costs related to nature is really the key to opening up a treasure box of natural value that all people can benefit from.” Related Links: EWN Website ERDC Website Todd Bridges at LinkedIn Todd Bridges at EWN Sarah Murdock at LinkedIn The Nature Conservancy Justin Ehrenwerth at LinkedIn Justin Ehrenwerth at The Water Institute of the Gulf The Water Institute of the Gulf Mindy Simmons at LinkedIn USACE Ecosystem Management and Restoration Research Program EWN Podcast S1E6: Assessing the Value of Natural and Nature-Based Features in Coastal Storm and Flood Risk Reduction Executive Order No. 14008, Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act

Debbie Mrzaek, President of The Sales Company, is Tom Fox's guest on this week's episode of the Innovation in Compliance Podcast. She has spent her career helping individuals and companies around the world as a sales consultant helping them develop good customer relationships. Debbie joins Tom to talk about sales processes and what compliance professionals can learn from sales personnel. Active Listening and Communication: The Key To Success in Sales Active listening is the key to success in sales, as the sales process is all about communication. Knowing when to speak and when to be quiet is vital, Debbie stresses: “If you're talking more than 60% of the time, shut up. You're not learning anything; you're not getting any new information.” Learning to ask open-ended questions and allowing the other person to do most of the talking will go a long way. Anyone can learn the skills of a salesman, and you don't have to be extroverted or a social butterfly to be successful in sales. All you need to do is be able to carry conversations and have genuine care for your clients. A Proper Sales Forecast A proper sales forecast isn't one that's done only once a year, but rather every day. Done this way, it drives the sales process further and also improves time management. Sales professionals can see at any point where they did well or where they went wrong. “Tackling the numbers, really understanding what they are, keeping up with them every single day, and knowing where you stand...and where you have shortcomings [can help immensely],” Debbie says. Tom adds that assessing your risk, and assessing them annually, as well as monitoring them and then adjusting your risk strategy where needed is also important. Relationships are Key The traditional sales model has the sales professional go out and acquire the potential client then turn them over to the inside sales customer. This approach, Debbie remarks, has its flaws because the relationship the sales professional built with the client ends up being tossed over to a stranger. Relationships are a key part about sales. “We want to establish relationships where people can come back to us again and again,” Debbie says. She talks about the third sales model which she calls the flexible sales process. In this model, the sales professional acquires the client but gets to maintain the relationship whilst working closely with the inside customer service people. Everyone in the sales department is working together as opposed to individual silos with poor communication. Improving Your Sales Model For individuals established in business, improving the sales model will follow the lines of assessing what's already been done in the sales department. It involves asking yourself questions like how long it took to close an opportunity with a client and whether or not that client has bought from you more than once. Sales personnel can then use that information when they're forecasting what they want to do in the future. Tom remarks that these concepts are applicable for in-house compliance professionals as well. The Impact of COVID-19 and What's Next The pandemic has impacted the approach to sales, Debbie tells Tom. Going forward, people will decide how they want to connect and communicate with sales professionals, whether in-person, virtually, or a hybrid of both. Debbie stresses that sales professionals have to have conversations with each prospect about this because they need to know what their clients want. Sales in the future will continue to see more innovation with respect to technology and the availability of data. Salespeople are going to learn how to use data like AI. She also believes that these kinds of technologies will be more user-friendly in the coming years. *Check out Smarsh Advance, which will be held on November 9th.

Last week I told you Corey and I were going to start being more vocal about our convictions on the show, and here we are.Today we are sharing a conversation I had with Natasha Smith. Natasha works with a ministry called save the storks, and she just co-wrote a book with Brittany Smith called unplanned grace.First, I want to say that while I loved our conversation, I feel like I didn't completely do it justice this week as I was interviewing solo and also right in the heat of our whole family being down with illness which is also why Corey wasn't part of the conversation. I had already rescheduled once, and was too excited to cancel a second time, but with that being said I feel like my tone sometimes didn't completely match my thoughts and so I just wanted to point that out.That being said, Natasha was so full of amazing insight and you can tell her heart is just so in this pro- life space. There were a couple things I wanted to touch on that I didn't get to so I want to address them below.So why do I feel the need to share about unplanned pregnancy?

Miguel spoke to Dr. Tracie Canada (@tracie_canada) this week, a socio-cultural anthropologist and assistant professor at Notre Dame (Department of Anthropology and Africana Studies). Dr. Canada's ethnographic research uses sport to theorize race, kinship and care, gender, and the performing body. Her work focuses on the lived experiences of Black football players. Dr. Canada is currently working on her first book, “Tackling the Everyday: Race, Family, and Nation in Big-Time College Football.” First, Miguel asked Dr. Canada about her two recent articles, “The NFL's Racist ‘Race Norming' Is an Afterlife of Slavery” and “Brotherhood and Anti-Blackness in College Football.” Next, Dr. Canada explained the practice of race-norming and how the NFL used it against former players impacted by brain trauma during their playing career. Additionally, Miguel and Dr. Tracy Canada discuss the lawsuit by former NFL players Kevin Henry and Najeh Davenport against the NFL, who accused the NFL of “explicitly and deliberately” discriminating against them and black players filing dementia-related claims. Dr. Canada also explained how race-norming is an afterlife of slavery, and Miguel and Dr. Canada discussed how injuries and concussions are structurally crucial to the NFL as a business. Lastly, as one cultural anthropologist to another, Miguel asked Dr. Canada why Miami Dolphins rookie WR Jaylen Waddle's draft-day press conference caught her attention and the difference between football teammates and football brothers. Note: Originally recorded on September 2, 2021. Next, Miguel gives you his Molotov MVPs for episode 27, former NFL running back Najeh Davenport and former NFL linebacker Kevin Henry. Finally, Miguel ends the podcast with another Chicana/o Sports History segment. This week, he highlights the 2021 NFL Hall of Fame Inductee and the first Mexican/Chicano and Latino Head Coach to win a Super Bowl, Raiders legendary Head Coach Tom Flores!

Today, we are talking with Jennie Monness (@momommies), mom, early childhood educator, RIE specialist, parenting coach, and co-founder of Union Square Play. Jennie sits down with us to cover some very big topics that happen every day whether we realize it or not – comparison, jealousy, and lying. We ask Jennie for specific examples about how to notice when these things are happening, what to do and say, and how we can help our kids get out of the pattern of comparing by asking questions. We look at our own mindsets around constantly wanting to fix things for our kids and why we should rethink the little white lies we tell if we expect our kids to keep it honest. We promise you will relate to and learn so much from this episode – the convo made us rethink how we can stop jealousy and comparison in its tracks as opposed to keeping up with it.

In 1945, warehouses in Birmingham, England, were brimming with unsent postal mail intended for U.S. soldiers at the frontlines. At the same time, African American organizations pressed the War Department to create more opportunities for African American Women's Army Corps members to serve. Tackling two issues at once, the War Department started recruiting African American women and formed the 6888th Central Postal Directory Battalion. The job was expected to take six months. The "Six Triple Eight" did it in three.Retired Air Force Major Fannie Griffin McClendon was one of these women to take up the monumental task of ensuring soldiers on the frontlines received mail sent to them by their loved ones, regardless of rain, sleet, “buzz bombs,” racism, and sexism. Indeed, throughout her time in the 6888th Battalion and later as a commander with Strategic Air Command, she faced and overcame many instances of racism and sexism thrown at her. This ranged from men who refused to serve under her because she was a woman. Focusing on her vital duties to the country, McClendon knocked down barriers and shattered glass ceilings at every corner of her military career.Even as a centenarian, McClendon remembered stories from her days in the military like the back of her hand. Stories she discussed in this episode of Borne the Battle include: What life was like for her while serving abroad in Europe during WWII The casualties the 6888th suffered while in France Becoming a commander in the Air Force Surrounded by the stench and sight of death, soldiers on the frontlines depended on members of the 6888th, like McClendon, to deliver them letters written by their loved ones back home. Despite the importance of their role, the 6888th, like many other segregated units from WWII, received little recognition after the war.The 6888th only recently started gaining popular recognition, with a documentary on it released in 2019.In 2021, the Senate passed the “Six Triple Eight” Congressional Gold Medal Act of 2021, an act awarding congressional gold medals to members of the 6888th for their “pioneering military service, devotion to duty, and contributions to the morale of personnel stationed in the European theater.”While formal recognition for her service was long overdue, McClendon seemed not to mind too much. Rather, she focused on the many opportunities the military gave her and the spectacular life it allowed her to live.Borne the Battle Veteran of the Week: Marine Veteran Zane Jones Additional Links: Even at the age of 100, McClendon went out of her way to get vaccinated for COVID-19.

I am honored to be interviewing Robyn O'Brien today! Robyn is a globally recognized voice in the food industry and has been called “food's Erin Brockovich” by The New York Times. Her TEDx talk (based on her book, The Unhealthy Truth) exposes the shortcomings of our food system and has been viewed millions of times. It has influenced policy, legislation, and product formulation. For the last fifteen years, Robyn has advised CEOs and executives at multinational CPG companies, startups, and farm organizations. Robyn is the co-founder and managing director at rePlant Capital, a financial services firm ambitiously determined to reverse climate change through the deployment of a series of proprietary funds focused on U.S. farmers and their transition to regenerative and organic agriculture. It can be hard for those who want to make real change in our broken systems to initiate change or know where to begin. Robyn O'Brien doesn't just make noise about problems. She builds solutions and encourages her audiences to participate by identifying their skills and experiences to leverage them as entry points for systems change. In Robyn's story, capital is an entry point for catalytic change. If biodiversity is resiliency on the farm, Robyn deeply believes that diversity is resiliency in governance. In this episode, Robyn explains how rePlant Capital is pioneering climate solutions by tackling soil health through a model of agricultural financing that no one else is providing. She also speaks to the importance of diverse governance and leadership in addressing these existential food, health, and climate issues. I am very grateful to Robyn for writing her book because it has profoundly impacted the trajectory of everything I am doing right now! Stay tuned for more! IN THIS EPISODE YOU WILL LEARN: Robyn shares her background. Robyn's motivation for investigating how our food gets produced. The additives in our food that drive allergies and food sensitivities. Some of the shocking facts that Robyn discovered about food allergies and American children. How Robyn realized that she had to use love and gratitude rather than fear when sharing her knowledge. The issues with the American food industry. Robyn talks about rePlant Capital. The difference between the conventional farm-debt industry and regenerative farming practices. Why we should never be afraid of starting small. The differences between various types of soil composition. Why water security is as critical as food security and national security. The importance of diversity. What you need to be concerned about regarding GMOs. Why we are seeing an escalated rate of allergies in our children. The importance of transparency in the food industry.

Welcome back to the Creative Capital Podcast with Josh Ferrari! In this episode, I welcome Alessandra Thompson! Alessandra Thompson is a 25-year-old real estate investor and large multifamily underwriter. From her experience in selling solar panels door-to-door to being a Senior Manager at a tech and marketing startup, she quickly realized that she needed to take control of her freedom. She recently closed on her FIRST deal - a 36 unit multifamily property in Little Rock, Arkansas. Her mission is to continue to scale her portfolio. She lives by the saying, “success lies on the other side of fear" and truly believes life begins when we step outside of our comfort zones. In this episode, Alessandra tells us her story of taking the leap of faith - getting away from her 9 to 5 job to pursue the real estate industry - with the aims of attaining financial and time freedom. In her journey, she shared how she quickly scaled up, the ways to find the right mentors, and how she developed the mindset transition to prepare herself for success. Join us and listen in!

A summary of the episode Closing words Key Quotes: “All those little mistakes that you've made, that you wish you never made, they really helped formulate you, grow you, and mold you into what you are today and what you will be in the future.” - Josh Ferrari “I enjoy the chaos, I've realized that if it were going smoothly, I would like it to go smoothly. But I'm also getting so many learning lessons just by having these bumps in the road. And so when this does happen, for the next property, I'm more aware of what to do, and I have the knowledge to back myself up.” - Alessandra Thompson “I think that taking risks and pushing yourself to do things that you maybe aren't comfortable with is the key to success. Because each time you do that you unlock a new part of yourself that you didn't realize was within you, and you don't even know where else that could lead.” - Alessandra Thompson Resources Mentioned: What Every Real Estate Investor Needs to Know About Cash Flow by Frank Gallinelli Connect with Alessandra via her email, Instagram, and LinkedIn!

Deidre (Dee) Woods who currently lives in London sheds light on the stark disparities that exist in the community she serves. As a food and farming action-ist Dee advocates for good food for all and a just, equitable food system, challenging the systemic barriers that impact marginalized communities and food producers.

Through policy action and decolonizing research and farming methods, Dee is committed to helping families struggling economically, often people of color, including immigrants and refugees. Of Trinidadian heritage, Dee talks about how her experiences of growing up on her father's farm in Trinidad made her passionate about food, farming and connecting to the land.

It's the goal of today's guest to make the impossible, not impossible. Mick Ebeling believes that we can overcome any obstacle; with engineering, technology, willpower the right people and a lot of elbow grease. Mick is the founder of Not Impossible, an award-winning social innovation lab and production company that was founded on the principle of technology for the sake of humanity. Not Impossible takes on the challenge of an individual in need, they find a solution and then scales it to help people everywhere. Mick's resumé of awards recognition for his innovative work is too long to list. Chances are if there's an award for innovation, he's won it. I'm pretty sure if there was a photo of someone next to the words innovator and positive changemaker in the dictionary, you would find Mick. He embodies those words in every way possible, and to say you will be inspired by his story and his work is an understatement.

These teams transform people's lives by addressing human absurdities and fixing design flaws in the world around us. To that end, they create never-been-built solutions that respect people's humanity, enable their independence, and enrich their experience in the world. The Not Impossible Foundation is a corporate foundation (501c3) that supports the efforts of others that are doing their part to make the impossible, not impossible. About Mick Recently named by Fortune Magazine as one of the Top 50 World's Greatest Leaders , a recipient of the Muhammad Ali Humanitarian of the Year Award and listed as one of the world's most influential creative people by The Creativity 50's, Mick Ebeling has sparked a movement of pragmatic, inspirational innovation. As a career producer and filmmaker and now founder and CEO of Not Impossible, Ebeling harvests the power of technology and story to change the world. Ebeling founded Not Impossible, a multiple award-winning social innovation lab and production company, on the premise that nothing is impossible. His mantra of "commit, then figure it out" allows him to convene a disparate team of hackers, doers, makers and thinkers to create devices that better the world by bringing accessibility for all. Working with a wide array of Fortune 500 companies, Ebeling not only pushes the bar on innovation, he also shares the emotionally resonating story of doing so. Ebeling's book, Not Impossible: The Art and Joy of Doing What Couldn't Be Done, recounts the life experiences that led to the founding of Not Impossible. Published in a multitude of languages, the book was hailed as "a unique and inspiring tale of brave abandon" by Nicholas Negroponte. Named one of Wired's 'Agents of Change', a two-time SXSW innovation of the year award winner, a two-time Tribeca Disruptor innovation winner, a fellow with The Nantucket Project, and recipient of every major creative and advertising award, Ebeling is on a mission to provide "Technology for the Sake of Humanity."
