Real Talk About Diversity with Jackie Steele
Jackie Steele is an intersectional diversity educator and advocate, feminist thought leader, political scientist, and the CEO of enjoi Diversity & Inclusion Consulting. Through Jackie’s extensive research and work around bringing new paradigms into existence, Jackie has become a champion for diversity. Diversity and inclusion have become a more commonly discussed topic in recent years. While we have made a great deal of headway, many systems remained unchanged. In this episode, Jackie offers us a look at what sparked her passion for diversity and innovation and how her work has reflected this. We also touch on democracy and why we should not give up on our governments, the false narratives around diversity and innovation, and the importance of creating safe spaces for marginalized people to flourish. True diversity and inclusion are not a quick-fix. Because of how deeply entrenched systems of oppression are, there is no silver bullet. Taking a systematic, thorough, and patient approach to change, as Jackie does, will result in meaningful and sustained shifts.

Create Your Own Version of Health with Courtney McCarthy
Owner and CEO of Loyobo FIT, Courtney McCarthy, is passionate about getting women to truly love their bodies by creating a non-judgmental and open fitness space where exploration and community are a fundamental part of the experience. Pervasive and normalized toxic diet culture, along with unattainable health and beauty standards, feeds into the self-loathing relationship we have with our bodies where we are constantly chasing impossible goals. Not only does that take us out of the present moment, but we never truly feel grateful for our bodies as they are. Despite what we are programmed to believe, we are all beautiful just as we are. Courtney's approach to health is going a long way in helping us unlearn many of the false beliefs that ultimately steal so much of our joy. If we can step into what makes us unique, we will see our power and be able to celebrate our bodies for all that they can do.

What to Take with You From 2020
Talking about 2020 is enough to make most of us want to curl up in the fetal position until the year is over. Why on earth would we want to reflect on a year that was synonymous with loss, uncertainty, and disruption? Because loss often goes hand-in-hand with beautiful and unexpected gains.In this special end-of-the-year episode, Britt talks about how this year impacted our enthusiasm and what we can take with us into 2021. As the year draws to a close, many of us are falling into the trap of thinking 2021 will automatically be better. This fragile “I’ll be happy when...” mindset not only puts pressure on us but also creates a host of unrealistic expectations. The reality is that we cannot know that a new year will signal a turning tide. So rather than putting all of our happiness eggs in one basket, we should instead use our 2020 experience as a foundation for meaningful and positive change. Take a moment to explore this idea of “hindsight is 20/20” so you don’t forget to look back and learn from your experiences before you move on.
