A podcast mini-series where I interview passionate people about the issues they care about and the actions they take to make this world a better place.
CAMIEL IRVING | EPISODE #1
Camiel describes herself as "a happy black women obsessed with big ideas." In this episode she talks to me about her passion for working with youth, her interest in ageism in the workplace, the importance of employee activism and why she thinks P&G, Unilever and Disney deserve our coins.
"It's wild to think that it is a standard mentality to dehumanize the impact of something and elevate the financial impact, as if money can spend itself."
MEKAELIA DAVIS| EPISODE #2
In this conversation Mekaelia brings her public policy expertise to the table as we discuss everything from why companies need to invest in their surrounding communities to why, despite putting the company "on pause," she thinks Starbucks is still leading the way when it comes to corporate responsibility.
"It’s not just about the philanthropy. How do we change what we do as a business so that we get better outcomes in society?”
- MEKAELIA DAVIS
EMILY YAO | EPISODE #3
In our conversation, Emily shares her passion for food and making cooking fun for kids. By day she helps companies imagine the future and in her free time she is busy building a social enterprise called CooCook that is focused on the "togetherness of cooking."
“There are so many pieces in the food system that need to be improved. I don’t think there’s one solution; companies need to be addressing different parts and do what they’re good at."
- EMILY YAO
ANGELICA COLEMAN | EPISODE #4
Angelica shares why she's passionate about diversity and inclusion, particularly in tech, and how she has used her voice to advocate for change from within. We also dig into her opinion on Uber's transformation, her issues with capitalism and the important nuances in the choices we make as consumers.
"You can't build great products for people of color if you have no people of color. And you're not going to have people of color on that product if you can't keep them inside your company."
- ANGELICA COLEMAN
FARAH DILBER| EPISODE #5
In this conversation Farah shares her rich experience in the education sector and how a mentor's advice influenced her transition into Corporate America. We talk about how individuals shape corporate culture and the increasing importance for companies to create opportunities for employees to make an impact.
“As someone who personally likes to think of herself as someone who is socially conscious and makes decisions aligned with her values, I want to work at a place that reflects that.”
