ROAR – Fostering the Spirit of Inclusion and Diversity with Dr. Raymona H. Lawrence
In this episode, Mary Sullivan, co-founder of Sweet but Fearless, talks with Dr. Raymona H. Lawrence about her framework called ROAR, about recruiting, onboarding, activities, and retention in the world of diversity and inclusion. Often, companies recruit for diversity but onboard for confirmatory. Recognizing the challenge of fostering a sense of belonging, asking questions can help build an inclusive environment that values diversity. “How does this system work for you?” “How do you best work? Are you task-oriented or more free spirit?” Understanding the needs and strengths of the individuals at your organization you can adapt your strategies and activities to ensure a continually inclusive and supportive environment. Dr. Lawrence provides actionable steps to help your ROAR. Dr. Raymona H. Lawrence is the Founder and CEO of Dr. Raymona H Lawrence Coaching, LLC-A Software/Systems As a Service (SAAS) Agency.

Lots of Clothes but Nothing to Wear? With Personal Style Coach, Angela Foster (S8:Epi 176)
In this episode, Mary Sullivan, co-founder of Sweet but Fearless, talks with Angela Foster, Petite Style Coach, about how clothing choices extend beyond mere fabric; it acts as a non-verbal communication tool, broadcasting defining traits to onlookers. Strategically curating a wardrobe ensures that personal style authentically communicates what you want others to see you as. The adage that people form 11 impressions within the initial 7 seconds underscores the significance of style decisions. This mindful approach to fashion transcends the superficial, forging a connection between attire and personal narrative. Aligning one's style with the desired brand image you want becomes pivotal, a visual manifestation of career aspirations. Clothing can influence how you feel about yourself and instill confidence in your self-perception. Angela Foster has over two decades of executive experience in the fashion and beauty industry, specializing in empowering high-achieving petite women to exude confidence by curating a wardrobe tailored to their unique needs. Angela’s expertise has been featured in Real Simple and Best Life, inside of leadership coaching programs, and on podcasts including Wingnut Social and Liz on Biz.   MORE ABOUT ANGELA:Website: Angela Style Coach  Social links: LinkedIn: Angela Foster Instagram: Angela Style Coach Facebook: Angela Foster Style Coach Pinterest: Angela Foster YouTube: Angela Style Coach MORE ABOUT SWEET BUT FEARLESS: Website - Sweet but Fearless LinkedIn - Sweet but Fearless
