    This one is for the men | with Meredith Holley, Esq.

    "I had to stop being sexist against myself before I could really impact the behavioral sexism I was seeing in the environment." -- That's from this week's guest, attorney turned conflict resolution coach, Meredith Holley. 
    We also talked about male backlash - and offered a (hopefully) reassuring story to the men listening, about a male client of Meredith's who said something sexist and dumb, came clean about it, and experienced a more positive outcome than he ever imagined he would as a result.

    Career Defense 101: How to Stop Sexual Harassment Without Quitting Your Job, by Meredith Holley

    Leading from the Heart, with Karine Jean-Pierre

    Leading from the Heart, with Karine Jean-Pierre

    In our mission to Solve #MeToo, we must be on the lookout for people who are deeply personally empowered - and Karine Jean-Pierre is one of these people. I knew it from the way she leapt up to protect Senator Kamala Harris when, onstage in the summer of 2019, a protester charged the stage at the MoveOn.org Big Ideas forum. And both her power and her heart were on display the night we met, when I broke into tears in a very public way on her book tour. 
    We talked about heart, and courage, and the importance of taking action in these critical times we're all living through.

    Be connected and powerful, with Ai-Jen Poo

    Be connected and powerful, with Ai-Jen Poo

    My guest on today's podcast is Ai-Jen Poo. She's an award winning organizer, social innovator, author, and a leading voice in the women's movement. She's the executive director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, co-director of Caring Across Generations, cofounder of Supermajority and trustee of the Ford Foundation.
    Ai-Jen is a nationally recognized expert on elder and family care, the future of work, gender equality, immigration, narrative change, and grassroots organizing.
    She is the author of the celebrated book, The Age of Dignity: Preparing for the Elder Boom in a Changing America.
    The conversation that we had focused around a theme of integrating healing and action. Ai-Jen told us the story of recovering from her own experiences of both harassment and assault and what an important part of her healing journey it was to get into action. She also talked about how important it was to have a community of people who could hear her story and believe her story and get into action with her to help change the conditions that so many workers like herself still face on a daily basis.
    She listed for us a number of different healing resources that are available out there, whether you are a domestic worker or you're anybody who is the survivor of workplace discrimination, harassment, or assault.
