Why I Dumped My Trash Can: A Very Necessary Breakup

BY ANAMARIE SHREEVES
@ VOL 30 ON AUG 21, 2016

Anamarie Shreeves became a self professed zero-waster and she excelled at it. One year of waste, of actual trash, fit inside one Bell's canning jar! But being a zero-waster is not the whole story... Why not recycle? It's great, right?? Perhaps there is more to the story...

My name is Lisa Givan and I AM A DIVERSITY TRAINER

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.

I Can Do That (and So Can You!)

BY ANYA MARCO HARRIS
@ VOL 20 ON MAY 15, 2019

In 'I Can Do That (and so can you!)', Anya Marco Harris, uses her 400 second PechaKucha for great impact. Anya draws on tales from her own life experience to convince the audience that if you have a dream idea floating around in your mind, stop in floating around in the abyss and make it a reality.

As Anya eloquently puts it, if she can achieve being a coffee queen, burlesque dancer, blogger, obtain a MA in cultural cosmology specialising in archeoastronomy and discover how the Neolithic chose to place the stones in Avebury Stone Circle (and that is just her life to date) - then so can YOU!
