    15 The Power Of History, Media and Representation-Asian Pacific American Heritage Month Special with Nancy Wang Yuen

    15 The Power Of History, Media and Representation-Asian Pacific American Heritage Month Special with Nancy Wang Yuen

    “There’s power in telling your story, knowing your story, and in seeing your story reflected. That’s why representation matters." - Angela Chee
    As we become more diverse and more divided, how can we move forward and thrive together?
    In honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, I’ve been watching a documentary series on PBS called "Asian Americans". It’s a groundbreaking 5-part series you can watch it online through the beginning of June.
    One of the people featured in this series is my guest today, Nancy Wang Yoon. Author of Reel Inequality: Hollywood Actors and Racism, Nancy is a pop culture expert and sociologist. She has appeared on PBS, BBC World TV, Dr. Phil, Teen Vogue, New York Times, and Los Angeles Times, among others.
    "Sharing all of the trials, the barriers, and the obstacles, and what we had to do to overcome - I think all that makes it that young people think that they can do it." - Nancy Wang Yuen
    On this show, Nancy and I talk about how knowing our history and the power of stories can shape our future. We talk about the importance of media, and how representation impacts our identities and society as a whole.
    In the last few months, there’s also been a rise in anti-Asian racism and incidents so it’s more important than ever to create a climate of unity to see our similarities and celebrate our differences. And it starts with us.
    "I think it is never too young to talk about things like racism and sexism." - Nancy Wang Yuen
    Show Notes: Why representation in media is important How Asian-Americans have been represented on TV The importance of knowing our history How media plays a role in how we live How are we going to move forward together? How Nancy perceives herself as she breaks barriers The importance of calling ourselves out around our prejudices "I try not to rely too much on the approval of others." - Nancy Wang Yuen
    3 Pieces of Advice or Action Steps: Be Humble Find Allies and Take Care of Yourself Dream Big "I don't take myself too seriously, and yet I have goals that I want to achieve that I genuinely enjoy." - Nancy Wang Yuen

    12 Christina Blacken - How To Disrupt The Status Quo, Break Through Stereotypes and Build Connection Using the Power Of Story

    “As I got older I realized how to stand my ground, respect myself, while also being able to have deeper conversations with people who are not like me - just so I can build connection and understanding." - Christina Blacken
    How will we reinvent and thrive as our current systems and beliefs are being challenged? It’s a time for deep transformation.
    The Power of The Only has always been about leaders who own their voice and their power. Leaders who serve as bridges and are able to communicate in a way that others can hear in order to create real change through abundance and not scarcity.
    Today's guest, Christina Blacken, is one of these leaders.
    Christina is the Founder and Chief Story Strategist of The New Quo and host of the Sway Them In Color podcast. She helps leaders communicate on a deeper level, sell their bold visions, build thriving diverse teams, and communicate in ways that improve their company's work culture.
    You’ve seen her work in ELLE.com, The Huffington Post, and more.
    "Every once in awhile it is good to understand the context of where somebody's bad behavior comes from." - Christina Blacken
    In this episode, Christina talks about how to see being "the only" as a superpower and not a burden, how to shift the status quo, and how all leaders can learn to be more empathetic and emotionally intelligent in order to create real change. We also talk about stereotypes and conditioning. We call out our own unconscious biases in others and ourselves, and more on today's show.
    "I would realize over time that even though they saw me as a complete only and other, that we would have more in common than we'd think.” - Christina Blacken
    Show Notes: How do we change the status quo through narrative How to bridge the gap between race, gender, religion, etc Why diversity and inclusion are different How to develop a culture of belonging? Tips for communicating and owning your voice Why storytelling can create change What questions to ask yourself to remove internal biases How to unpack your unconscious biases What your options are when a change occurs "In a lot of these conversations I try to look at the grey, which is asking people open-ended questions that force them to really consider and unpack their own beliefs." - Christina Blacken
    3 Pieces of Advice or Action Steps: Know where your boundaries lie - what part of your identity are you not willing to compromise? Ask questions and challenge people to think about things differently Have a psychologically safe place you can go "Most people at some point in time have experienced some level of adversity, some level of conflict, some level of misunderstanding. And I think that it is important to hear that from each other." - Christina Blacken
