    #40 - The Human Story: Jane Elliott worldwide educator on racism only knows the truth and tells it well.

    #40 - The Human Story: Jane Elliott worldwide educator on racism only knows the truth and tells it well.

    Jane Elliott has been a long time fighter against racism for over 40 years! She is mostly known for her blue-eyed brown eyed exercise used to help educate people on some of the negative impacts of racism. I always find it interesting how so many who partake in her exercise cannot handle it for one hour while black people have had to face racism their entire lives. Jane is very purposeful in her approach and given the racial uproar the world is currently in it was only fitting to have her on the show. To learn more about Jane Elliott you literally just have to Youtube and Google her. Her videos are all over the internet, but here is here direct website www.janeelliott.com. You can also stay connected with us on Instagram at @iamkobitalks. Don't forget to subscribe wherever you listen on anchor.fm/purposefulstorypodcast  (Spotify Apple, Google, etc). Below are some of the resources and books that Jane Elliott recommended from the episode. Thanks for tuning in and remember to live everyday with purpose so all your actions are clear!

    We brought the technology guru  Andrew Bromfield to give some quality advice on how to get into technology as a career. The best part about it is that you don't need as much technology experience as you may think. Even being in tech myself and early in my career I would even go as far to say you can use other experiences to make you even more valuable than you know. This is a solid opportunity to learn more about technology and it's even more relevant considering the worldwide pandemic that is impacting everyone on the planet.
