Corporate “Caring" & Inconsistent Political Contributions
The topic this week is accountability around consistent behavior by corporations in their public stances around social issues and their corporate giving. Or, how can you say to your customers and followers that you are all about diversity and BLM, and then give money to a person running for attorney general who is definitely not about that at all? And, why don’t people use the power of their purse in supporting goods and services who put their money in support of that which we support? Here’s a stat that will make you press play. Only 10% of Americans will actually spend according to their beliefs. Lesa Ukman, who has been tracking company giving sponsorship returns for years. She ends with the three things we can do to better put our money where our mouths are.

One of the Groundbreaking OBGYN's on Abortions in the '70s (with Thomas Kerenyi)
Today, on #WhatSheSaid, the podcast of Her Circle News, our editor-in-chief, Christine Merser, interviews Dr. Thomas Kerenyi, the former head of the OB/GYN department at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. Dr. Kerenyi was one of the first doctors to perform abortions in New York City clinics in 1970, when New York State made abortion legal, before the United States Supreme Court’s 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade. He had much to say about those times, and about his mentor, Alan Guttmacher, the late president of Planned Parenthood and head of Mount Sinai’s OB/GYN team, who taught Dr. Kerenyi that, “Every pregnancy should be a planned one.” Don’t miss this walk down memory lane and warning about today’s challenges that continue to promt the review of abortion laws. “Women will always get abortions,” Dr. Kerenyi states. “It’s a question of whether they have the right to do it safely.”

Restorative Practices, Trauma Informed Practices, in Education and Beyond (with Maya Baker)
Maya Baker, principal of the Bayshore School in California’s Bay Area, speaks with our managing editor, Christine Merser, on groundbreaking educational methods in areas such as “warm demander” teaching, restorative practices in education, relationship-focused education, culturally relevant and responsive teaching practices, and working through trauma in the classroom. We could have spent hours and hours with her, listening to her patient answers to our questions, such as, “What is a child’s personal responsibility for his or her behavior?” Don’t miss this podcast if you care about education and want to understand how to provide each and every child with the best possible learning environment. For your reference, here are some of the resources she mentions in the podcast: “Fostering Resilient Learners” by Kristin Souers and Pete Hall is the book I was referencing and reading while in New York. Zaretta Hammond authored the book “Culturally Responsive Teaching and the Brain.” I didn’t mention her in this podcast, but she is absolutely instrumental to understanding the neuroscience behind culturally relevant and responsive teaching practices. Https://www.cultofpedagogy.com/culturally-responsive-misconceptions/> is a very useful blog in which her work is explored in fine detail. Ross W. Greene, Ph.D. is the author of “Lost at School” and the ALSUP I spoke of — Assessment of Lagging Skills and Unsolved Problems. Here is the URL for TREE, www.thecclc.org., an amazing program in Maine that I visited and workshopped with last spring. They are doing incredible work involving trauma-informed practices, and it’s through that program I acquired the rubric I shared with you. I am proud that my school will be working with them this year.
