059: Privileged to Be Feminist with Keshet Bachan
"We don't reward anger in women. I find it really important to tell women, 'You can be a woman, and be angry at the same time.'" Keshet Bachan says she's been a "practicing feminist" for around 14 years, but the seed of gender equality has been in her soul from the start. Originally born in Israel, Keshet now focuses on Diversity@Work a mission driven consulting firm she founded in May of 2018 to drive diversity, gender equality and inclusion. "Reality requires a lot of negotiation." As her father says, Keshet has "an overdeveloped sense of justice" that has enabled her to not only see the problems of inequality, but maintain the energy to continue to fight for justice. From her work "putting outrage into practice" with giant tech companies in Silicon Valley, to her own practices of checking her privilege by ensuring she's "carving space" for other voices, Keshet is ensuring that the next generation of activists are even more "InPowered" than her own.

057: Fueling Economic Innovation in Haiti with Karl Jean-Louis
To improve the social and political contexts in Haiti, it is crucial for civil society, the business community and the population to all play their role in governance. In the right political environment, the business community can create jobs and add value to society. This is needed in Haiti now more than ever. In this episode of The Get InPowered Podcast, Judithe is joined again by Karl Jean Louis,founder of Sa se Biznis Pam. A strategic innovator with more than two decades of experience delivering complex development programs in countries experiencing transitional and post-crisis stages, such as Haiti, Burundi, Rwanda, Democratic Republic of the Congo, South Africa, and Uganda, Karl works at the intersection of the public sector, private sector, and civil society. From 2011 to 2014, in the Martelly administration, Karl was appointed as the first Executive Director of the Presidential Public Policy Unit and later Executive Director of the Council for Economic Growth and Investment, General Director of the Center for the Facilitation of Investments, and Chief of Staff of Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe. Currently, Karl is building a platform to amplify the stories of Haitian business innovators with the aim ofinfluencing the political system and improving Haiti’s socio-economic outlook. The recent political crisis in Haiti was a wake-up call for the nation’s small business community to work together. As Karl notes, “We have a fragile state, and this requires the business community and civil society to play their role and take responsibility. This means being vocal and addressing key major issues in terms of governance, playing a constructive role. What we have is a failure of the government, a failure of civil society, a failure of the state.” In this conversation, you will hear how Haitian leaders like Karl are working to shift humanitarian aid services’ perception of Haiti in order to prioritize the creation of economic opportunity for growth and political stability. Haitian entrepreneurs, innovators and business leaders are ready and actively playing their role to transform Haiti for a progressive future. Shifting Haiti’s long-term political economic condition is not something the aid community can achieve without the primary involvement of the Haitian community. This is where Sa se Biznis Pam comes in. Sa se Biznis Pamis the only network in Haiti bringing business owners from across the country to share insights on how society can transform Haiti’s economic outlook. The mandate of this network can potentially shift the paradigm to fundamentally change social economic conditions through incremental and scalable reform. As the lead innovator, collaborator and convener of Sa Se Bisnis Pam, Karl is working to leverage the influence and insight of the private sector and civil society in order to increase government accountability and propel Haiti forward. In this episode, we will hear about the Network’s 4-point Strategic Vision:1) Engage and inform the Haitian population about the network’s existence and role;2) Work with the Ministries of Commerce and Finance to increase the efficiency of their role in supporting and responding to the reform policies in place, with the aim of increasing economic growth and working with the business community accordingly;3) Invest in social programs to address the needs of the population and decrease the levels of poverty and inequality in Haiti with a focus on women and youth;4) Provide technical assistance to network members in supporting the growth and development of their business, and improve their capacity to grow. “If we do not step back to assess how volatile this environment is and step up as business leaders, then we are doomed to remain in this chronic state of political and economic instability for [perpetuity].” Join us as we continue to explore with Karl and the network of Sa Se Biznis Pam, the activities of those leading in Haiti as well as the role of diaspora in advancing Haiti’s development outlook.

055: The Full Human Context of Migration with Celina de Sola, Founder of GlassWing International
In this episode, Celina de Sola joins Judithe Registre to discuss the context of human life and the experiences of citizens migrating from Latin American countries that have been the focus of the current immigration debate in the US. Celina, the founder of GlassWing International, is from El Salvador. After spending many years traveling the world as a humanitarian relief worker as well as working as a social worker and public health specialist, Celina felt compelled to return home and make a difference in Central America. Drawing on her experiences, she saw an opportunity to combine an international perspective with a hands-on, grassroots approach to transform vulnerable communities across the region. Believing or assuming that people simply want to come to the United States misses the point that people are not going on vacation or choosing to expatriate to the US as a matter of luxury. “It is not easy to leave your home, to move to a new place where you do not speak the language, by taking a long journey to a completely unfamiliar life. This is not an exciting journey that people have decided to go on per se. People are fleeing to save their lives.” It is not simply a journey of aspiration; it is a journey of survival. People are being forced out of their homes. Celina’s work with GlassWing International focuses on the critical work being carried out with communities, young people, and institutional structures in countries of origin (El Salvador, Guatemala, Ecuador, Mexico) to anchor communities’ aspirations for peace and opportunity. As you will discover while listening to this episode, citizen safety and security is one of the greatest forms of opportunity that we can work to create. This episode will give you an appreciation not only of Celina’s work, but of the full human context of migration, enabling you to move beyond the ideological battle of immigration as it is being covered by the news. “In separating children [from families] fleeing violence, it increases the burden of risk, with an impact [that will] last for generations.” As we have seen in other contexts, such slavery and Native Americans, it becomes an intergenerational catastrophe. “The challenge of structural and systematic violence requires deep level work at the community level with families and young people while working at the national judicial level.” Therefore, the work in host countries is paramount to avert further trauma and heal communities.

In this episode, Judithe Registre responds to and reflects on the message of Joy Donnell, from Episode 53.

053: How Creativity Cures Frustration with Joy Donnell
Stop living as if “here” has no value. “Here” is also a direction, and sometimes it’s the most valuable direction that you have.” - Joy Donnell. In this episode, Joy Donnell joins Judithe Registre to highlight creative ways to harness and use the energy and emotion we are all generating naturally through the obstacles and adversaries we encounter every day. Despair is natural to us; you just don’t need to let the despair overtake you. - Joy Donnell Joy is a strategist, activist, and entrepreneur driven by purpose. Her PR expertise touches all of her work as she brings her unique insights to content strategy, content creation, and luxury fashion and luxury lifestyle branding. When she isn’t behind the camera creating fashion editorials and fashion films as a producer or director, she steps in front of the camera as a model and sustainable luxury advocate. The idea of luxury as a state of mind is something Joy advocates as necessary to cultivate as we creatively engage all of our emotions: anger, frustration, love, and shame. Joy challenges us to engage with ourselves and the journey of our emotion to create beauty in our communities and in the world in general. This powerful awareness can lead to social change and social engagement. This is especially important in a world where we are consuming more information than ever before, As Joy puts it, “true luxury is the absence of angst.” In today’s world, “media has become a basic human need.” In other words, how we process and respond to the slew of information we are consuming and producing has never been more critical. If we accept media as a basic human need in our current world, we have to start asking ourselves different questions and demanding more well-rounded narratives. Joy Donnell is currently CEO of Parajin Media Corp and Editor-in-Chief of its flagship luxury lifestyle publication, Vanichi. She also serves as an advisor for The Geekie Awards, the Creative Visions Foundation, and Charles and Company luxury tea Give more oxygen to the knowledge than you give to the noise. - Joy Donnell Connect with Joy and learn more about her and her work via social media and her website details below: FB: @joydonnellofficial IG: @doitinpublic Twitter: @doitinpublic Vanichi FB, Twitter, IG: @vanichimagazin

051: The Promise of the Next Generation Leaders with Macy and Karen (the mother–daughter duo)
“Kids can make a difference in how they understand the world.” [And parents can support kids and not force their understanding of the world on them.] Give the children more freedom to understand the world on their terms.”-Macy Macy and Karen join Judithe for a conversation after the March for Our Lives in Washington, DC. Macy is an 11-year-old student with a passion for life, fun, and both social justice and equality. Karen leads a strategic program advancing opportunities for young people globally. As a mom to two of our most promising young people, and given her work with an international development and relief organization, she has to stay ahead of the curve. Thankfully, her daughter’s leadership and clarity of purpose keep Karen focused on what is important—that is, to harness the power and leadership of her daughter (and son) while helping them grow with the moral integrity necessary to be thriving adults. This episode is focused on the generation of young people, like Macy, whose mission and purpose for equality have no age limit for understanding what it takes and what is fair and just. The nature of an interconnected world combined with social media mean parents cannot merely be gatekeepers, they must also be a guide through these changing times. The need for adults to support young people in rising to their leadership roles means the nature of parenting has expanded to not just be a nurturer and provider, but also serve as a coach. It is a huge responsibility and special privilege to be a parent given the speed and pace of the change. “Using her voice for good and problem solving take time. The role of a parent is to support that. I have enjoyed working with Macy in how to be a peace-maker and be a strong advocate for yourself and for your friends.” Karen What young people are you supporting to rise to leadership?

050: Humanity in Aid
Recorded live in Haiti, Judithe Registre responds and ruminates on the discussion with Mary Ann Clements last week. "When I hear people say, 'These things happen as they happen in any other sector,' I think, 'Should they?'" Racism, sexism, and discrimination are not acceptable in any context, but in the context of social justice and humanitarian work, those actions can be even more harmful and insidious. In light of recent scandals in Haiti, Judithe considers the response to these issues and a path towards a more diverse, just, and supportive organizational framework and mindset that can bring our personal standards and values to the organizations, nations, and individuals we serve.

047: “Black Panther” and the Historical Contributions of Africa with Mvemba Dizolele
We spend this episode considering and reassessing the contributions that Africa (and the Congo specifically) have made to the global “village” with Mvemba Dizolele, a writer, foreign policy analyst, and independent journalist who is also the author of the forthcoming biography: Mobutu: the Rise and Fall of the Leopard King (Random House UK). In the wake of “Black Panther”’s mainstream success globally, many are asking questions like “What would Africa look like without colonization?” “What would the Western world look like without slavery?”, but as Mvemba discusses with Judithe, there are members of the African diaspora that didn’t grow up in the context of colonization and do see the contributions and importance of Africa in the development of the modern industrialized world. “We don’t reclaim them (these stories) to be in a fight with the West. But we reclaim them to put things back where they belong!” - Mvemba Dizolele
