BY ANNAL VYAS
@ VOL 9 ON NOV 03, 2017

At 40, something I realized that a series of brief "diversity immersion experiences" defined not only what I do but who I am. Encounters since childhood that have been centered around self-awareness, difference, bias, value and mindset determine the narrative we create surrounding every aspect of our life. I share my journey and expound on how it led me to my current career. My name is Lisa and I AM A DIVERSITY TRAINER.

The Power of Empowerment

BY JANICE CHAPMAN
@ VOL 1 ON MAY 20, 2018

The power of empowerment vs giving your power away. E.g. Whether you give your power to the psychic that says you should go to law school and so you start studying for your LSATs, or whether you give your power to the spider in your bathroom by not relieving your bladder. In every decision I make in life I ask myself, am I giving my power away or am I owning it? Sometimes you don't even realize you've given power away until you get it back - and it feels so good when you get it back! Especially in the instance where I finally relieved my bladder.
