17 | Jennifer Brown – Diversity and Inclusion
Do you know how being aware (or unaware) of diversity in our population is affecting your life? Most of the time we go through life without truly being aware of the difficulties that people in diverse groups have in their personal and professional lives, OR we are a member of a diverse group and feel like we are marginalized, unaccounted for, or misunderstood. It is ALL OF OUR responsibilities to make this world more inclusive for all people, especially if we are in positions of privilege or power. In this episode we explore what the challenges are for people in diverse populations as well as what structural changes need to occur to allow everyone to feel welcome and cherished. Our interview with Jennifer Brown teaches us: 1) What it means to be in a diverse group of the population (and what it can feel like!), 2) How leaders must shift their thoughts and actions in order to create a more inclusive environment for diverse members of a workforce, and 3) What inner shifts we all can make in order to bring more empathy and understanding to the world.

16 | Tim Stein – Trauma and Relationships
Do you know how trauma is affecting your life? Trauma is often misunderstood as exclusively being a life-threatening event that keeps someone in fear of danger for the rest of their lives. While this IS a type of trauma, there are many covert types of trauma that often go unrecognized and untreated in people’s lives. Relational trauma from our childhood can drastically affect how we attach to people as adults, and it can lead to addictions without us realizing why. In this episode we explore the different types of trauma and discuss how we can begin treating them if they are present in our lives. Our interview with Tim Stein teaches us: 1) What trauma is, 2) How we can recognize its effect on our lives, and 3) What steps we can take to begin healing that trauma and learning to have deeper intimacy in our lives.
