    Ensuring an Equitable Return to the Workplace After COVID-19 with Heather Odendaal

    Ensuring an Equitable Return to the Workplace After COVID-19 with Heather Odendaal

    In this exciting episode of the Holistic Wealth podcast with Keisha Blair, our very special guest is Heather Odendaal. Heather is the Co-founder of WNORTH Connect, based in Whistler, British Columbia. Heather is an accomplished entrepreneur, brand builder and an acclaimed event producer in Western Canada. Heather has worked on some of Canada's largest and most influential events including the Whistler Film Festival, Crankworx Mountain Bike Festival and the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics. Ensuring an equitable return to the workforce after COVID-19, will be one of the key challenges faced by employers. According to Heather Odendaal on the Holistic Wealth podcast:

    “One of the things, as a remote employee that I experienced, and I hope that this is a flaw that is fixed in the next few years or even months is as a remote employee, I always felt like I was being treated differently and I wasn't being considered for certain opportunities. I was left out of important conversations…. What I would like to see is a more equitable spread of how those remote employees or those hybrid employees get treated when it comes to promotion, when it comes to opportunities for advancement, women and women of color, people of color, people with disabilities, all minorities, will be more likely to select remote work and hybrid environments than non-minorities. And, so we're going to see a fundamental shift in the makeup of who is going to be remote and who is going to be in the office”.

    In 2014, Heather Odendaal and her team recognized critical business challenges many professional mid-career women face, who lacked fundamental organizational support, often resulting in leaving the corporate workforce. To address the issue, Heather and her husband, Mike Odendaal, created the WNORTH conference. Specifically focused on elevating more mid-management women to senior leadership roles, the WNORTH organization has since challenged the status quo, provided support, and driven change within the corporate environment.

    WNORTH has worked with companies including Aritzia, HSBC, AstraZeneca, and more, on developing retention strategies for high-potential leaders in their organizations. Through these partnerships, WNORTH has strengthened and expanded on the internal support for women in the workforce – supporting an overwhelmingly underserved community of women – especially minority groups, including women of colour, and indigenous women.

Javacia discussed the importance of good health care for Black and minority women and how she uses her voice to advocate through partners like the Tigerlily Foundation.

    How To Cope With Social Anxiety and Trauma (Including Money Blocks)

    How To Cope With Social Anxiety and Trauma (Including Money Blocks)

    In this exciting episode, our very special guest is Rebecca Wiener McGregor, a consulting hypnotist, certified by the National Guild of Hypnotists, creator of the Whole Life Happy Method of hypnosis, breakthrough-maker coach, and mentor since 2004. She’s created a spiritual practice that blends hypnosis, mindfulness, breathwork, meditation, gratitude, along with neuro-linguistic programming, neuroscience, to create Whole Life Happy for her clients. She has experienced social anxiety herself and helps others overcome trauma, including money blocks.

    According to Rebecca on the Holistic Wealth podcast: “what I've learned from my career is that when we have something happen and we have a series of pathways. That way of thinking and then the brain responds with the activity of the mind and the thinking that happens. So we begin to create beliefs based on what we think in those experiences and I help clients deal with a lot of physical and sexual abuse.

    And they begin to have the feeling that they’re not worth anything because of this trauma. And they begin to have these thoughts over and over that are related to that experience. And those create pathways in our brain. And when we heal neutralize the experiences and start to recreate new pathways, because we can recreate new pathways”.

    Rebecca’s work really resonated with my viral article entitled “My Husband Died At Age 34. Here Are 40 Life Lessons I Learned From It” (by Keisha Blair)and I discussed my new upcoming book that focuses on overcoming disruption, that’s now available for pre-order.

    How This 27-year-old multimillionaire tycoon is helping women and girls get educated (Even While Coping with Chronic Fatigue and Pain)

    In this exciting episode, our very special guest is the amazing Nyla Khan. Nyla is the co-founder and executive director of Kids World Nurseries, a UAE-based network of Montessori schools that focus on child-centered education. She also co-founded Mirai Partners, a learning and development organization. In 2018 Forbes Middle East recognized her as one of the top second-generation Indian leaders in the Arab world. Khan’s work aims to close the gap between the current state of education in the UAE, where high-quality schools remain accessible only to those who can afford them, and what it could be. Instead of profit-driven, exclusive schooling, she envisions a world where affordable education is available to all children.

    Nyla’s main focus is Mirai Partners, a strategic learning and leadership consultancy that works closely with businesses, education leaders, and governments. Founded in 2018, the firm has brought the latest educational technology to rural and remote communities. One of Mirai’s first clients is Lexplore, a reading assessment startup based on research from the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden. The system uses eye-tracking and artificial intelligence to accurately measure a child’s reading level in only two minutes. It can more easily identify students at risk for dyslexia and other reading difficulties for early intervention. Nyla and her co-founder, Christine Nasserghodsi, have brought Lexplore to schools in Ghana, Nigeria, and Ethiopia. They have also created educational content for adults, such as digital learning solutions for corporate clients and leadership development programs for schools in India. Nyla also discussed the importance of health and well-being for entrepreneurs – especially those dealing with chronic fatigue and pain. Nyla discussed how she copes with Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Fibromyalgia, as a successful entrepreneur, and the benefits of a holistic perspective to health and well-being. We discussed the importance of the concept of the Art of Recovery from Disruption, the title of Keisha Blair’s new book (available now for pre-order), especially during and COVID-19.

As one of only five Latina women in the U.S. to helm an international magazine, BELLA CEO and editor-in-chief, Vanessa Coppes, brings the full depth of her diverse background as an immigrant to running her magazine as well as her media company. Born and raised in the Dominican Republic, at the age of 13, Coppes had a clear vision of working in the magazine business in New York City but pursued the more predictable path of becoming a teacher. After graduating college and attending design school there, she taught for several years and loved it, but knew her future held more.

    BELLA is an American luxury lifestyle and fashion magazine. Distributed nationally, BELLA covers topics like fashion, beauty, health, philanthropy, arts and culture, cuisine, travel, celebrity and entertainment. Vanessa’s journey and success story is one that embraces authenticity and determination. In this episode, we discussed Vanessa's journey as an immigrant from the Dominican Republic to New York City and starting her very own business and going through post-partum depression. Mental health is a topic that’s very important to Vanessa, and as Vanessa stated in the interview: “I talk about it (mental health) as often as I possibly can, because I'm here to show people that you can overcome it and you can manage it and you can, continue to live a happy life, regardless of, whatever mental health aspect you may be plowing through. I've struggled with depression since the age of 13. So it wasn't anything new to me after I had post-partum depression”.
