In the third part of the 'A Different Perspective' series, host Rosanna Gill shares insight she gained from the series and shares her own experience with white supremacy.

On this episode of the Growing With Purpose podcast, Paul Spiegelman talks with Mel Gravely, majority owner and CEO of TriVersity Construction. He is also the author of nine books, including his most recent, Dear White Friend. As a self-proclaimed product of Affirmative Action, from an early age Mel understood not only that his presence as a black man in professional settings was met with negative perceptions, but also that the intentionality of inclusion offered him opportunities that the systems in this country would not have naturally led to. After a successful career at IBM, earning his PhD, and starting several other companies, Mel went on to lead TriVersity Construction, which is a consistent member of the Deloitte 100 list of the largest privately owned companies. After writing eight business books relating to his PhD in entrepreneurship focused on African Americans, Mel felt compelled to contribute to the social justice movement with his book Dear White Friend (in which he intentionally left out his PhD). Through a series of letters to his white friends, Mel cites extensive research and data to support his own sentiments around race, and how our country's history and systems have led us to this point in history, but has not prepared us for it. As he says, “If we can't figure out how to talk about what we're feeling and experiencing and what we see, how can we hope to solve it?” In this episode, hear Mel tell Paul his approach to this book and what kind of impact he hopes it can have on future discussions around race. Plus, hear how Mel's parents helped prepare him to be a successful leader, and what his definition of success is for his company. Listen to Mel's story below:
Are white people being silenced by being labelled as racists? Controversial comedian Isaac Butterfield thinks so. And what about people who publicly call out racism? Are they also silenced? Sami Shah feels frustrated with all this shouting and looks for answers to cancel culture by confronting his own racism.
We hear two pieces of tape that didn't make it to the main Adrian Younge episode. Both speak to these awkward and sometimes very difficult conversations on race that we should all be having, especially in the aftermath of George Floyd and this country's race reckoning. We also speak to a promising young artist, jaythehomie, from emo-rap duo RoeShamBeaux about his thoughts on Adrian Younge's album The American Negro and the things he learnt that weren't in any history book. He also shares his own experiences with racism and the concept of double consciousness, growing up in suburban Virginia. Follow @RoeShamBeaux on twiitter, instagram, Spotify and Apple Music.

“Listen to your heart, to your gut, your inner knowing and your instinct. Look for teachers, but always know that YOU ARE the teacher.” - Leslieann Hobayan Today's episode is about how we personally interact with our educators. How do you connect with them? Is there any chemistry? It is important to be in integrity with who you are, who you want to be, who you need to be, and who you look up to. People seek more and wonder if there is more to life. We see things that can unfold right before our eyes and are curious about what lies ahead. What can we do as seekers that prevent us from falling into blind devotion to another person?

In this episode, I interview Kelly McDonald about how to create a workplace that fosters inclusion, recognizes diversity as a strength, and cover some important "how-tos" from her newly released book, It's Time to Talk about Race at Work. We also cover how to deal with "nay sayers" and "de-railers," and how to make the business case that now is the time to make diversity and inclusion a number one priority.

How to Stay in Your Lane to Support Diversity and Inclusion An interview with Dr. Joy Cox, PhD, on tapping into the strength of community and genuine relationships to understand and address systemic oppression. Curt and Katie talk with Dr. Joy about intersectionality, the harmful stories we can tell ourselves about people who are different from us, and what we can do to best support diversity and inclusion in all the spaces we inhabit. We also address why it is important to do some of this work privately (rather than working it out publicly through statements on social media). It's time to reimagine therapy and what it means to be a therapist. To support you as a whole person and a therapist, your hosts, Curt Widhalm and Katie Vernoy talk about how to approach the role of therapist in the modern age. Interview with Dr. Joy Cox, PhD Dr. Joy Cox is a body justice advocate using her skill set in research and leadership to foster social change through the promotion of fat acceptance and diversity and inclusion. With 37 years living as a fat, Black cisgendered woman and 7+ years of professional experience under her belt, Dr. Cox draws on her own experiences and skill set to amplify the voices of those most marginalized in society, bringing attention to matters of intersectionality addressing race, body size, accessibility, and “health.” Joy has been featured on several podcasts and media productions such as Food Pysch with Christy Harrison, Nalgona Positivity Pride with Gloria Lucas, Fat Women of Color with Ivy Felicia, and Huffington Post's piece, “Everything You Know About Obesity is Wrong.” She also just authored her first book, Fat Girls in Black Bodies: Creating Communities of Our Own. She is the voice of an overcomer, looking to propel others into a place of freedom designed by their desires. In this episode we talk about: What Dr. Joy is putting out into the world Intersectionality and bias, stigma How to take an intersectional approach The importance of genuine relationships in understanding others Discussing the panel discussion in the conference when addressing learning about others The harm of putting work on individuals with lived experience Why and when you should pay for expert consultation The challenge of googling to learn (when it works and when to seek expert guidance) The importance of saying no when someone is asking you to become a spokesperson The exponential impact of intersectionality of marginalized identities How intersectional identities compound to create narratives Anything that is heavily stigmatized in society – racism is not far behind it Knowledge without learning to implement Why you should find your lane and move accordingly How to identify what you can and should do to support inclusion The importance of identifying where to do the work, it doesn't have to be public Why individuals need to learn themselves, understand their heart, and identify who they are Getting it right is better than getting it fast Having the important conversations and checking in with the people who matter The unreasonable expectation to have an opinion on everything The benefits of community with each person staying in their lane Creating community that includes all people and the strength that provides Pushing back on the idea that everyone has to be able to do all of the roles We need to change how we think and we need to change how we feel to uncover more space than we knew was available for all people Our Generous Sponsors: SimplePractice Running a private practice is rewarding, but it can also be demanding.

I think we can all agree that gaslighting is the wooooorst. When you share a vulnerable or tough experience with someone and they respond in a way that makes you feel like you’re being dramatic and overreacting it really hurts. In this episode I cover the many ways that people gaslight one another, where the term comes from, why people engage in gaslighting, how to respond when someone is gaslighting you, and of course what to do if you realize that you’ve gaslighted someone else. I also share a few examples of times that I have been racially gaslighted, oof. If you need a little validation you’ll find it here. Don’t worry you’re not losing your mind, you’re being gaslighted.

The message that the patriarchy and toxic masculinity negatively impacts men and boys as well as women has gotten louder in recent years. But what does that understanding mean for mothers who want to raise feminist sons? Seattle University journalism professor Sonora Jha joined us to offer her own thoughts about this complex and important question. In a deeply personal conversation with bestselling author Ijeoma Oluo, Jha shared her journey to raise a feminist son as a single immigrant woman of color in America. A story of struggling, failing, and eventually succeeding, she offers much-needed insight and actionable advice, pulled from her book How to Raise a Feminist Son: Motherhood, Masculinity, and the Making of My Family. Jha and Oluo discussed everything from teaching consent to counteracting problematic messages from the media, family, and the culture at large, arguing that we have big work to do when it comes to our boys. Jha presented wide-ranging research, showing us all how to be better feminists and better teachers of the next generation of men. Don’t miss this crucial conversation that will resonate with feminists who hope to change the world, one kind boy at a time.

Why is talking about race within the Jewish community important? Jennifer Stern Granowitz and Erin Beser speak with Benny Witkovsky, a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Sociology at UW-Madison, for some background on how to talk about race in white Jewish learning spaces. Talking about this will inherently make people feel uncomfortable – so let’s get uncomfortable. Discussion and Reflection Questions 1. What is your experience and understanding of race? 2. Do you think it is important to speak about race in the Jewish community? Why or why not? 3. Where do you see a potential opportunity to incorporate a discussion about race with your students? 4. How can we use our Jewish identities to deepen our understanding of race and racial injustice in America today? 5. A question from Benny Witkovksy: What do we do with our history? How do we use it to bring us to action today? Resources: Anti-Racism Resources Part 1 for Families (pasyn.org)
We continue a period on the Jewish calendar called the Omer — the 49 days between Passover and Shavuot that our tradition observes through a practice of counting, day by day, week by week. We imbue these days with meaning by assigning a different theme to each week that encourages self-reflection and self-improvement for the betterment of the whole community. In that spirit, we’re doing a series of interviews featuring people who have made their life’s work an extension of their lives’ purpose.This week, we dive into the fifth theme of the Omer, hod, or humility, with Alexandra Corwin and Tani Prell — co-founders of Continued Learning Group.In this episode, Alexandra and Tani join Rabbi Lizzi Heydemann to talk about culturally sustaining pedagogy, identity, and the hard work of unpacking and unlearning white supremacy and racism. Alexandra and Tani bring personal experience as Jews of color, as well as academic and professional expertise to their work and their lives.

Hello all!Soo this episode is HEAVY. I will give that disclaimer ahead of time. In this episode I will share my thoughts on the ongoing conversations surrounding race and justice. My hope is that you will listen the whole way through with an open heart and mind. The recipe that I mentioned in this episode: https://www.avantgardevegan.com/recipes/korean-shroom-burger/Facebook: www.facebook.com/groups/472784687505331/Instagram: @uncommonthoughts21YouTube: Uncommon Thoughts Podcast
Key Points From This Episode: - Get to know today's guest, Evan You. - Hear what Evan’s other project, Vite, is all about and the various features it has. - The biggest change with Vite 2 is that it is now framework agnostic. - What inspired the change to make Vite 2 more framework agnostic and the benefits of the shift. - The difference between working on Vue and building a new framework-agnostic build tool. - Balancing high configurability and being overly opinionated; Vite sits somewhere in between. - How Evan keeps his finger on the pulse of other frameworks and how he's changed Vue accordingly. - Insights into Vite's new plugin system and what inspired it. - The decision-making behind drawing inspiration from Rollup's plugin. - Evan’s thoughts about Vite and Rollup plugins and what this means in the context of Vue. - Some of the ideas Evan hopes to bring back to Vue after working on Vite. - Challenges come with wide adoption, but Evan is still grateful for the active community and what they are creating. - Changes that have happened with VitePress; Evan's experience. - The current VuePress landscape and why Evan does not want VitePress to replace it. - Plans to make Vite the default way of doing things on Vue CLI; Evan weighs in. - The challenge Evan has when switching between Vue and Vite. - What Vite's development process looked like; Evan had to learn lots along the way! - When you are working on something new, with not much precedent, it is never going to be a straightforward process - You have to try to put yourself in other developers’ shoes to understand the range of issues that exist. - Plans for a Vite RFC process and what is in the pipeline on that front. - The pre-bundling changes that have happened with Vite 2 have contributed to better speed. - Deciding what to bundle: insights into Evan's thinking. - Asking the controversial question: when is Vite 2 going to be released? - Evan's thoughts on using only Composition AI and not Vuex. - Music Evan listens to while coding and where to find him online. - Alex's pick for the week: Fruity Pebbles Crisps, both delicious and horrifying! - Evan's pick for the week: Curse of the Dead Gods and Hades. - Tessa's pick for the week: So You Want to Talk About Race, Birdy the Mighty Recode, and her electronic soap dispenser. - Following up from previous picks we have talked about. Tweetables: - “The biggest change with Vite 2 is that it's now framework agnostic, so it's not just Vue specific, it works equally well for most of the other frameworks people want to use.” — @youyuxi [0:02:56] - “With Vite, because it's a new thing, I can be as opinionated as I want. it's a new area of exploration, where I’m not confined to the existing decisions we've made.” — @youyuxi [0:08:21] - “Compared to Vue, the workload on Vite is still somewhat OK. If we build up more community members to help triage the issues, can contribute PRs, and maybe even build up some maintainers to handle the daily patch releases, that would be a good place for me, so that I can just overlook the higher-level decisions and only tune into specific decisions when I need to.” — @youyuxi [0:40:18] - “This whole process is a constant discovering new ideas, trying it out, realizing it doesn't work, and then trying something else. it's never going to be a straight-line process.” — @youyuxi [0:44:03] Resources mentioned: - Evan You (https://evanyou.me/) - Evan You on LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/in/evanyou) - Evan You on GitHub (https://github.com/yyx990803) - Evan You on Twitter (https://twitter.com/youyuxi?ref_src=twsrc%255Egoogle%257Ctwcamp%255Eserp%257Ctwgr%255Eauthor) - Ionic Vue (https://ionicframework.com/docs/vue/overview) - Jason Miller (https://www.linkedin.com/in/developit) - webpack (https://webpack.js.org/) - VuePress (https://vuepress.vuejs.org/) - Vue CLI (https://cli.vuejs.org/) - ALGTR (https://www.instagram.com/lexieliu_/?hl=en) - New Fruity Pebbles Crisps (https://www.simplemost.com/new-fruity-pebbles-crisps-are-big-potato-chips/) - Curse of the Dead Gods (https://www.focus-home.com/games/curse-of-the-dead-gods) - Hades (https://store.steampowered.com/app/1145360/Hades/) - So You Want to Talk About Race (https://bookshop.org/books/so-you-want-to-talk-about-race/9781580058827) - Minor Feelings (https://bookshop.org/books/minor-feelings-an-asian-american-reckoning/9781984820365) - Tetsuwan Birdy Decode (https://myanimelist.net/anime/3974/Tetsuwan_Birdy_Decode) - Panel de Pon (https://panepon.fandom.com/wiki/Panel_de_Pon_(SFC)) - SoSplush (https://www.etsy.com/shop/SoSplush) - Enjoy the Vue on Twitter (https://twitter.com/enjoythevuecast?lang=en) - Enjoy the Vue (https://enjoythevue.io/) Special Guest: Evan You.

There is a pop psychology theory about left brain and right brain dominance from the 1980s. Supposedly those with strong right brains are the analyzers and those with dominant left brains are the artists. In this scenario, it is a rare person who is lucky enough to have both sides of their brain work harmoniously; their logical and scientific right brain plays nicely with the creative and imaginative left brain. Our guest this week, debut novelist Christina Consolino would be one of those people. Christina grew up creating stories but also loved to read biographies of famous female scientists like the first female physicians in the United States; the Blackwell sisters. She loves to read fiction but decided to make a career in science by pursuing a PHD in physiology and teaching it at the college level. Like a lot of writers, the characters she created in her head wanted to come out; when they got louder, she knew it was time to embrace the life of a full-time author. Christina's first book which came out in March is called Rewrite the Stars. It is the story of a military veteran's PTSD and the havoc it has wrought on his marriage. The reader gets both his version of events, as well as those of his estranged wife, Sadie. Christina talks to us about how her experience as an editor gave her confidence to write her novel, what disease her veteran character originally had instead of PTSD through 3 drafts until she decided it just didn't serve her story well, and what name she calls her favorite teaching skeleton. Books Mentioned in this Episode: 1- Rewrite the Stars by Christina Consolino 2- The Value Tales series 3- A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith 4- The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett 5- The Sisters Blackwell by Janice Nimura 6- Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare 7- The Fault in Our Stars by John Green 8- Washington Black by Esi Edugyan (audiobook) 9- So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo 10- She Wouldn't Change a Thing by Sarah Adlakha 11- Sophie's Choice by William Styron 12- How the Penguins Saved Veronica by Hazel Prior 13- A Polar Affair by Lloyd Spencer Davis 14- A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman 15- Where'd You Go Bernadette? by Maria Semple Online magazines mentioned-- 1- Literary Mama Movies mentioned-- 1- Write Before Christmas

If you are a clinician, researcher, or editor working in genetics, you are probably aware of the toxic history of our field with regard to race. And (JAMA editors aside, apparently) you are probably aware that this is not just a historical problem, but something affecting medical practice today. How do we move forward in a fashion that is not racist – or, better yet, anti-racist?
After ripping its punctuation to shreds in Episode 17, the girls have decided to revisit their previous Summary & Review of The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Shwab (Episode 17). In this episode, Paris and Falyn must reckon with their own ignorance in a transparent dialogue that proves we truly are all “learning new things all the time.” They also make a bunch of fart jokes, discuss Falyn’s epic past as a Poetry Out Loud Champion, and Paris’s tragic childhood. *We recommend listening to Episode 17 of Fantasy Time for additional context* - Enjoying the show?

This week's podcast features our recent discussion about race and the evolving role of investors addressing racial inequality. We're resurfacing this conversation because even as Black History Month comes to an end, the hard work to increase diversity in the markets continues.We brought together four professionals to share their expertise on the topic: Lisa Lambert, head of National Grid Partners and former head of the Intel Diversity Fund; Barry Eggers, a founding partner at Lightspeed Venture Partners and current chairman of the National Venture Capital Association; Angela Matheny, director of the diverse asset-manager program at Crewcial Partners; and Cynthia Muller, head of mission-driven investment with the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.Our guests discussed why it's so important from business and equality perspectives for investors to prioritize diversity and inclusion goals in both their own teams and in their portfolios.
