Today's episode is with Calgary writer, journalist and truth teller Tomi Ajele. Tomi shares with us the importance of slow journalism, creating your own blueprint and treating stories with care. Tomi speaks to the intent of the media collective, Afros In Tha City, saying, "We don't want to give you a soundbite. We don't want to give you a quick pitch. We just want to show up and tell our truth." She also speaks to the creation process, "We don't even know what failure looks like because we don't even know what we want to become. It was just us putting our truth out there; it didn't feel like it needed to look a certain way."
In today's episode, I speak with sustainability leader, mother, and activist Nagwan Al-Guneid about her life-long passion for politics and her vision for the future of energy. We discuss the importance of empathy, conversations and coming together in order to create a just energy plan. Nagwan states, "I believe energy transformation is about having conversations in diverse settings with diverse perspectives. It involves everybody."
In today's episode, recovering hustle culture disciple Miche Priest walks us through the process of getting unstuck. She provides three steps we can take to finding solutions: widening the lens (not hyper focusing on two binaries), getting missing data, addressing the risks/fears holding us back.
Why we need to dream—and dream big—especially during challenging times. I share my thoughts on why we must dream our own dreams and not what society expects us to dream. I tell a story involving a spreadsheet (because spreadsheets are beautiful) about how taking ownership of my dreams is something that I still struggle with to this day.
Today, I speak with proud introvert and gentle disrupter, Shahzia Noorally. Shahzia shares her story of showing up authentically in her career and unapologetically taking up space. Shahzia is the host of the Colour Gap Podcast, which I listen to and love, and speaks to how this has been an outlet to share her experiences and offer unconventional career strategy and advice for women of colour.
