    Redefining Accessibility in Design With Disabilities Advocate Emily Ackerman

    Redefining Accessibility in Design With Disabilities Advocate Emily Ackerman

    Have you ever been frustrated with how the world works? Then when you try to change it, you realize how big the problem is. Some of us would be overwhelmed by this thought, unlike our superhero guest. This week, Puno chats with Emily Ackerman, an engineering grad student and disabilities rights advocate bringing awareness to accessibility. 
    Emily’s viral tweet about a potentially life-threatening encounter with an autonomous delivery robot at the University of Pittsburgh, which was blocking a curb cut designed for people with disabilities like herself, is bringing attention to the issue. 
    This episode sheds light on how people overlook disabilities in the design process. Emily gives us helpful tips on how to combat this issue not just in design but in life. Emily also touches on this episode about her COVID research, academic journey, and being in STEM. 
    Emily's powerful message will have you asking yourself, how can I contribute to breaking down systematic and institutional barriers and have more inclusivity in my everyday life?

    So, you have a genius idea for a new business: but how, exactly, are you going to pay for it all?
    We’ve talked a lot about bootstrapping this season on Girlboss Radio, but this week, Puno dives into the world of venture capital with Aishwarya Iyer, the founder and CEO of Brightland.
    How you fund your business affects how you build your business - and how long you have to make it happen. 
    Before anybody can give you any advice about what type of funding you should look into, you need to know the answers to these three questions:

    What are you building?

    How much is it going to cost?

    How much control do you want?


    Tune in for Aishwarya’s unique perspective on venture capital after a decade in the industry.

    Unpacking #Girlboss Feminism with Hari Nef

    Unpacking #Girlboss Feminism with Hari Nef

    Yup, we’re going there. In this episode, Puno chats with Hari Nef, an actress, model, and writer who isn’t a huge fan of the term “girl boss.”
    Puno and Hari discuss the rise of #Girlboss feminism in the wake of Trumpism and the Women’s March back in 2017, and whether or not that ideology is still relevant today.
    Hari Nef was the the first openly transgender woman signed to IMG Models, starred in the Emmy-winning television series Transparent, and is currently working on writing her own television series, which you’ll hear all about in this episode! 
    Tune in for a spicy episode: in the words of Hari, “I actually took a poll on my finsta, ‘should I go on the Girilboss podcast?’ And the two options were ‘go on and be spicy’ or ‘die cool.’ And most people voted to go on and be spicy, so I'm here and I'm going to be spicy.”
