The One With Jane Finette
I’m so, so excited to introduce you to my next guest, Jane Finette!Jane is the Founder and Executive Director of The Coaching Fellowship, a  nonprofit organization dedicated to the development of young women leaders in  social change. A leadership expert and Certified Professional Co-Active Coach  (CPCC), Jane has dedicated her life to achieving equality for women — empowering them to create impact and build the world of tomorrow, today.  A 2020 Women Forward Gold Award winner from the Business Council for Peace,  Jane’s passion, expertise, and two decades of experience is anchored at the  intersection of technology and human potential. At her core, she empowers  individuals and communities to solve the world's largest, most persistent, and  perennial problems. Jane is the author of Unlocked  which is both a referendum on women's inequality and a toolkit for leveling the playing field for women and girls. According to the World Economic Forum,  women lost 36 years of progress in 2020 alone, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  That's an entire generation lost.  We are living in a world where women still need to fight for access to capital,  voice, opportunity, skills, and more. Yet, once unlocked, women hold the key to  realizing the true potential of our global society. Author Jane Finette’s debut  book, Unlocked - How Empowered Women Empower Women, is a collection of  real-world short stories that highlight impactful accounts of incredible female  leaders working to propel women and girls forward. Part inspiration, part  practical guide, Unlockeddemonstrates how these pioneers are creating  lasting change, and how you can apply their trailblazing lessons to your own life. Finette’s expert insights show that, although the problems and challenges can  seem insurmountable, positive global change is fueled every day by women  everywhere. Unlocked was written to encourage and empower women to take  action into their own hands, and to reach gender equality in their lifetimes. When we lift another woman, we all rise!   You can reach Jane Finette in the following locations:  Website:   Twitter:   LinkedIn:     To purchase Jane’s Book Unlocked: Website:   Amazon:

The One With Desiree B. Stephens
I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am for you to meet my next guest, the wonderfully authentic Desiree B. Stephens! This is a longer episode and you’re going to hang on every word. We are talking about racial inequity, decolonization, systems of oppression, and the willingness to have necessary and important conversations around diversity, equity and inclusion. Desiree is also a celebrity (she’ll kill me for this) on TikTok and has created a huge following where she is disrupting and agitating people and their beliefs to bring people to a higher sense of  understanding and healing. You’re absolutely going to LOVE the wisdom, history, and hard-hitting truths that she’s dropping. Desiree  B. Stephens is a decolonization spiritual counselor who creates communities that support the unfolding and unlearning of how we became who we are as a society. It is her goal to create true intersectional spaces that allow each of us to see the humanity in each other and create liberation from oppressive systems. Desiree does this work through paradigm shifts, and creating new systems. She focuses on serving and helping others by working with the systems and processes that already exist and aiding her clients in creating new systems and thought patterns that will get you into a space of creating and manifesting what they desire.  Sit back and get ready to stop and rewind parts of this discussion—her wisdom and insight will touch your soul.    You can reach Desiree  at the following locations: Website:  TikTok:   IG:   Facebook:   Podcast:    Clubhouse:  You can join Jen and Desiree live every Thursday night at 7PM EST when they hold a room called “Let’s Have The Conversation: Black Folx, White Folx, Let’s Chat” (previously called “Hard Conversations” which is referenced in this episode) The HERstory Collaborative Podcast  Listen to the podcast, here, or you can choose your favorite podcast platform:  ApplePandoraSpotifyStitcheriHeart RadioAmazon MusicTuneIn + AlexaPodcast AddictPodchaserPocket CastsDeezerListen NotesPlayer FMPodcast IndexOvercastCastroCastboxPodfriend  Please subscribe to the show while you’re at it, so that you’ll be alerted to every episode that drops weekly!
