    A Conversation About Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

    A Conversation About Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

    In this episode, we examine diversity, equity, and inclusion. While we understand that this may be a sensitive or uncomfortable for some, DEI is an important factor in creating an inclusive, positive world. We will discuss how those in the DEI space have found their passion for the work that they do. We will also discuss how anyone can contribute to accessibility and inclusivity. Whether you have experience in this space or whether you are brand new, we highly encourage everyone to listen and reflect on the points discussed here.

    The NABS Now team loves to create episodes about meaningful ways to use your brain; however, this month, we want to give you some tips on how to let your brain rest and recover. It’s no secret that finals are quickly approaching (insert cringe here,) but in between the cramming and coffee sessions, it’s important to take care of yourself. In this episode, we explore why self-care is so important and how to integrate it into our busy lives. Stick around until the end of this episode, and you will have the chance to take part in a mindfulness activity that will leave you feeling calm and ready to conquer anything!

    Wisdom & Willpower - Celebrating Womens’ Empowerment

    In celebration of Womens’ History Month, the NABS Now team created an episode focused on female leaders in the Federation. From humorous to emotionally inspiring, this episode is all about what it means to be a woman in countless realms. We talked with women about discovering empowerment, using their voices, and identifying those who have come before us, blazing a trail for future leaders to follow. Whether you are a member of our national student division, an elected officer at any level, or simply a Federation friend, this episode can teach you a thing or two about finding your own sense of empowerment and even a few new ways to empower others.

    Thank you to special guests Ever Lee Hairston, Jennifer Bazer, and Samantha Flax.
