Unlocking the Power Shift with Anucha Browne
There is so much power in knowing our history and seeing others, who have come before you, unlock new pathways. In her recent speech at the unveiling of Former President Barack Obama and Former First Lady Michelle Obama's White House portraits, Michelle Obama eloquently discussed why moments like that are important for anyone who may be doubting themselves. She discusses how her own story has shaped by her experience as a Black woman, and how sharing her story can help others to see themselves in a place where they can be successful. This week's guest Anucha Browne's dynamic story has shaped her in many powerful ways while providing the fortitude and resolve to find ways to shift power. In this episode, Anucha Browne joins me for a very honest conversation about her journey as an executive with deep cross-sector experience and a legacy in women's college sports. She talks about her current role as Chief Impact Officer at Tides, where she is responsible for leading the execution and implementation of Tides' strategic initiatives. She talks about the organization's recent focus on shifting and strengthening the power of BIPOC leaders, organizations, and communities. Browne credits the passage of Title IX for giving her the opportunity to play basketball at Northwestern University, which served as a catalyst to gaining valuable leadership skills that she continues to leverage in her efforts to shift power.

Unlocking Your Inner Muse with LaNora Williams-Clark

Unlocking Your Inner Muse with LaNora Williams-Clark
For members of historically marginalized communities, there often is an incredible amount of pressure on those who are identified as possessing a lot of potential. They've done all of the right things, worked hard in school, earned multiple degrees and fulfilled a dream by securing a prestigious job perhaps as a doctor, lawyer or engineer. Yet, whose dream are they fulfilling? Knowing that so few of their peers would have an opportunity like this, do they stay in that job because of the sense of guilt they feel? In this episode, I had a riveting conversation with LaNora Williams-Clark, a creative entrepreneur who became a lawyer because a teacher planted the seed during her youth. While thriving at her law firm, she wasn't happy and it literally took a cataclysmic event to convince her to walk away and seek clarity about her true passion which led her to unlocking her inner muse.   Under the guidance of her late mentor and Constitutional Law professor, โ€œThe Father of Critical Race Theoryโ€ Derrick Bell, LaNora left the practice of law to start Muse Creative Arts Agency LLC where she supports the efforts of various writers and creators using film and theatre to tell important stories. She also has her own production company, MCa2 Productions, where she published her first book โ€œBecoming The Museโ€ and is currently working on a childrenโ€™s book series for adults based on the animated character โ€œLioness Muse.โ€     I invite you to join our conversation as LaNora and I discuss:   Significant momentsSerena and Venus Williams9/11Being braveEntrepreneursSouth Central LAPlanting the seedConnectionsBlack male teachersBeing bussedBeing seenGuiltDerrick BellThe MusePolymath     Honorable Mentions The Man Behind Critical Race Theory Harlemโ€™s Williams-Clark Winner Of Black Public Mediaโ€™s PitchBLACK Competition Becoming the Muse by LaNora Williams-Clark Tanekya Word's Art Black Women of Print Dr. Bernard Demczuk Jason Fish     Excited to hear more of what LaNora Williams-Clark has to say?

Unlocking Social Capital in Corporate America with Amelia Hardy
Aug 3 2022
Unlocking Social Capital in Corporate America with Amelia Hardy
Over the last couple of years, as major corporations publicly stated their commitment to equity & inclusion, many leaders from historically excluded & marginalized identities were asked to step into roles to help lead the change. Being at the table can be both exhilarating and exhausting. But having representation at the table is essential. In this episode, Amelia Hardy and I discuss how to show up, stand up and speak up when you have a seat at the table and the importance of authentically being part of the conversation when the glass cliff is ready to be shattered.  In todayโ€™s conversation, I delve into how Amelia is leveraging a successful career to create transformational change to shift the narrative of "business as usual" within a Fortune 100 company.  From prioritizing herself, and her family, and leaning into meaningful relationships in business, we cover a wide spectrum of how she stays on top of her field and ensures that her passion, purpose, and profession are optimally aligned while working to unlock equity and inclusion in today's corporate landscape. Amelia Hardy is the Chief Inclusion & Diversity Officer at Best Buy. Amelia has over 20 years of strategic and leadership roles at fortune 100 companies. Her career experience includes marketing strategy, brand management, business development, and product commercialization. She is significantly involved within the community and currently serves on multiple national and community boards, including the Boys and Girls Club of the Twin Cities, the Cowles Center, and Minnesota Community Care.  I invite you to join our conversation as we discuss: George FloydSelf-CompassionCompartmentalizationDiversity, Equity, and InclusionUsing your voiceRelationshipsNetworkJames BaldwinCorporate Social ResponsibilityInclusive LeadershipAdvocate for ChangeGlass CliffMeritocracyWork/Life Integration   Honorable Mentions Self-Care Practices for your Life 5 Ways to Fight Diversity Fatigue Diversity & Representation: a Corporate Perspective Ted Talks: Danger of a Single Story What makes an inclusive leader?

Unlocking Sisterhood & Entrepreneurship with Beverly Oden and Mia Jackson
There is something magical when Black women come together in sisterhood. True Sisters can talk in every way possible. From sharing wins to being transparent through the hard times, there is NOTHING like your Sister friends. In this episode, I am in conversation with two of dear friends, Beverly Oden and Mia Jackson. This is not the first time we are speaking on a podcast together. All three of us were a part of the podcast Game Changers Live, where our tagline was a "new view from the sidelines." We have had many changes since the last episode dropped in 2014 but one thing has remained: the love and respect we each have for each other...even if we all can't agree upon a favorite Lakers player! Mia Jackson is a marketing, communications and brand acceleration leader. Beverly Oden was heard in Episode 2: Unlocking Your Authentic Voice so if you did not have a chance to listen, please do (after you listen to this episode). Beverly's journey consists of her being an Olympic athlete, counselor, entrepreneur, author, journalist, and producer of Beyond the Glory. I invite you to join our conversation as we discuss: How to ask for help Entrepreneurship Perfectionism Law of Diminishing Returns Money Stories Control Trusting ourselves Capitol Loyalty Self Compassion Respite Asking for help Support Honorable Mentions How Perfectionism Can Impact Panic and Anxiety Effective Leadership What, Exactly, Is Business Development?

Unlocking the Judiciary System with Monica F. Wiley

Unlocking the Judiciary System with Monica F. Wiley
At the time of this episode dropping, being a woman of color has me at strife with our current judicial system. Between the overturning of Roe v. Wade and the killing of another unarmed brother by a police department, the news can feel unbearable. Our Country needs change. The best way to enact that change is to be a part of the system. That is why in this episode, I am proud to speak to Judge Monica F. Wiley, the second African American female appointed to the San Francisco Superior Court bench about how she unlocked the club to the justice system. Judge Wiley has been a San Francisco Superior Court judge since 2009.  She was appointed by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.  During her tenure she has presided in civil, criminal and family law departments in both trial and calendar courtrooms.  Judge Wiley has also served as a member of the Courtโ€™s Executive Committee, the Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee, the Civil Grand Jury Committee, the Personnel Committee and the Events/Collegiality Committee.  She currently presides over a family law calendar department.  Judge Wiley also serves on the California Center for Judicial Education and Research (CJER) as classroom faculty for newly appointed judges in the State of California. I invite you to join our conversation as Judge Wiley and I discuss: Justice system Jury of your peers Speak into existence Perseverance Role models Leaving a legacy Mentorship Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson Judges Sentencing guidelines Local politics Madeleine Albright Finding an outlet CASA/GAL program Honorable Mentions Put Down Your Cape: Solving the Black Superwoman Syndrome National Museum of African American History & Culture PHYSICAL ATTRACTIVENESS BIAS IN THE LEGAL SYSTEM Cross Country Challenge Excited to hear more of what Judge Wiley has to say?

Unlocking Self Love through Storytelling with Julie Lythcott-Haims

Unlocking Self Love through Storytelling with Julie Lythcott-Haims
In 7th grade, I was invited by my teacher to join a creative writing group. I respectfully declined. Then, during a parent/teacher conference, that 7th grade teacher told my mom I declined. In all of my mom's wisdom, we had a discussion about it and encouraged me to reconsider. I still said no. For me, it felt like an unsafe club because there were no stories I could related too as a young black girl. In this episode, I would love to introduce you to Julie Lythcott-Haims. Julie is no stranger to telling a great story. Not only does she share how her writing was rejected for decades but she also shares her journey on how writing allowed her to find the most important love. The love she had for herself. Julie Lythcott-Haims is an American writer, speaker and human. She has written three non-fiction books: How to Raise an Adult; Real American, a memoir; and Your Turn: How to Be an Adult. She served as dean of freshmen and undergraduate advising at Stanford University. I invite you to join our conversation as Julie and I discuss: Self acceptance Societal Rejection Privilege Mindfulness Internalized oppression Race in books Inclusion NY Times Best Seller Showing up Affordable housing Mental Health Honorable Mentions The controversy over the new immigration novel American Dirt, explained 5 Simple Mindfulness Practices for Daily Life Faces of Power: 80% Are White, Even as U.S. Becomes More Diverse More candidates explore run for Palo Alto City Council Julie For Palo Alto City Council Let's Talk Excited to hear more of what Julie has to say?

Unlocking Being Invited to the Table with Shawntera Hardy
When many think of golf, they think of Tiger Woods or The Masters. Some even think of the movie Happy Gilmore! However, when I thought of golf, I thought of many business opportunities coming to fruition. It is on the golf course where many deals have been brokered. I can tell you, golf is not only a game that I have come to fall in love with but I have also been enjoying brokering and finding those business opportunities. My hope, through this podcast, is to amplify these opportunities that other Black women must take advantage of as well. For this reason, it is perfect that I am speaking to Shawntera Hardy and all of the opportunities she has created for herself from everything from being a Commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development to staying at Sir Richard Branson's Island!

Unlocking the Real Stories of Black History with Dr. Michele Goodwin
In today's current climate, there are so many pressures. Pressures when it comes to our reproductive systems and the conversations the government is having about it. Pressure when it comes to the push to succeed. Pressures for black women reclaiming our space. With all of these pressures, we look to our ancestors and wonder how did they handle all of the atrocities they experienced and still have dignity and grace for their fellow man. My guest can speak on this perfectly. In this episode, I am so pleased to speak with Dr. Michele Goodwin. Dr. Michele Bratcher Goodwin is a global thought leader and advisor.  She is the host of the popular podcast, On the Issues with Michele Goodwin, at Ms. magazine.
