I think if not maybe a little bit more members from the first one. I remember we did yours. End mind like in the same recording musically and so we talked a lot about representation. We talked about your experience with being a person of color and having not really realized it until. And why don't we dive in. So tell us who you are. What's your heritage.

I mean i'm looking forward to thursday. Who's rawnsley what's your heritage. Well i. it's interesting. I've always struggled with identity and i still. I think i'm on that journey. All figuring out exacting by bennie. So it's a constantly evolving. Question alonso. I suppose to the questions constantly. Ask myself that. But my mom on a portuguese possible at my dad's in indian possible fire was spreading office. The only possible and osborne bearing in the middle east by mom was born in mombasa in kenya. So i've actually never thought of myself as a minority. I think is the would that i like. I never thought of myself as a minority. And i think that's the conversation he had maybe time because i was in an entrepreneur events where there was a session on minorities and someone asked me on going to that session and i'm like no. I'm not a minority minority and then bay said in hindi because i still understand riot out. He said it in job excellent but it's very similar thing like connie see the color of skin now's life. Us should stick with that so that was fascinating when that happened. What all that changed often. Black lives matter off the some conversations about representation about somew- conversations that i'm having so i'm just a citizen of the load totally when i find interesting is that it wasn't until adulthood. That was pointed up to you which it even much more complex and layered because i grew up in mexico city came to the. Us and the united states is notorious for wanting to put you in boxes. When you arrive into the us is like oh you. Are this whatever we decide. That box is and most of my audiences in the us but habitat people like it all over the world. And so your experience makes the answer even more layered because not everyone exists within the constraint. You didn't you. Iran's lead for a long time and i didn't fit him anywhere right so that was the familiar part of everything. Like i never fitting. Why didn't fit in need. Even i spoke in the with an english accent sauce incidents the ride and i come to failure. I have an indian accent and my indian turret still acts up. Don't get me wrong. But i had changed the way i spoke primarily because i think that when someone didn't understand me they didn't know how to ask again to the only way than you ought to ask again was to make like i wasn't saying correctly in the first place and i gotta john's to like you know break that down really until now this year even in the last few months so then now more and more i'm encouraging people to pull and that's why i think clubhouses amazing and obviously i'm one of my a lot but I love clubhouse primarily because you feel all these different voices and really listen because you know in cobb. Got to listen before you speak right. It's like a token stick. So you have to listen to this person and you realize that if you pay attention just because they sound different in the english is different does not mean that they're not smart or they're not intelligent in the points that they're making bright

They're going to be different from other chapters are going to be different from working with headquarters and only experience with the organization is with that chapter and it's not a good experience. They're not going to have a good experience about organization as a whole now speaking from personal experience. I don't have a good. I have not agree. Good experiences with my local chapter in atlanta. That is well documented. They know that. However i've also worked with headquarters and those experiences have been pretty good from the most bar.

But overall i look back at that time and the things were able to accomplish and feel good about that not every i j member is going to have that opportunity to be able to kind of see the organization from those different ends..

"That are the negative parts that carry with lexi organization. What we have now is kind of a moment of zen mentioned earlier. My role and coming in here is to completely rebuild and rethink who we are and how we've operated now. What i can do is acknowledge what went on before me but i can do is acknowledge those faces in the hurt and pain in the disconnect. That has been a part of legacy. And that's what we have going forward is. What are we doing now to build for new theater. As i mentioned it was important for me in through the organization for us to have critical investment in rethinking leadership in re-equipping leadership in reinforcing what it means for us as an organization that's why it was a central tenet of our leadership training and also what this year is exposed and where we had kind of a pandemic in space. We had the public health concerns. We had the ongoing economic concerns at tied it. We have a moment of ongoing racial reckoning and in our organization like mimi legacy organization. There's an ongoing conversation of is our organization structured and equipped in a proper way. Those conversations were always needed. They were always poignant and they were always sincere but it allowed us to kind of dig into. We're we need to be as an organization. You know there's a semester before these kind of ongoing spaces that day and conversations and miscues and misunderstandings that had gone on and hadn't been addressed really intangible ways for generations. I wonder if things that and starting in the role. I've always had both in this organization inauguration a completely open door open email open. Pick up the phone policy. You know. I will take a call and text at any time. And i've been asking the questions of both current members and former members and stakeholders and really getting to understand their experience with the organization. And those those cues. Sometimes you know there are spaces in which we've seen that are just the failings of an organization going through change. You've seen those faces in there when you really get into the stories other times. They're kind of personal heartbreak that ties into the space and then the negative things that have been the off shoot of a profession that we don't have to recount all the different ways in which the profession has been limited.

"Was not there to call it as you mentioned but very much so i want to touch on something that i think honestly it just came up as you were explaining this so i was mentioning how this kind of sounds like early strategic design. And then you're also saying that because of this you kind of ended up almost veering more into doing marketing strategy. Roles that you've been in these high level marketing strategy roles you've worked for the better business bureau the hr certification institute etc. And maybe this kind of speaks to an earlier point. I was saying about sort of expanding. Its definition of design. Because what you're doing back then was designed. It wasn't a hand on on paper or paintbrush canvas but you are sort of doing like organizational design or strategic design. I don't know what it would have been called back then but it's interesting. How that had you kinda more into marketing and away from maybe a traditional design discipline and i think it we bring our all of ourselves to this right and i had this experience in this deep passion for business and creating things and so that was the expression of it taking these tools and aaron in each of the organizations whether my title was director or chief marketing strategy officer. I always had the heads. Creative director design director report incident. He designed was always kind of a secret ingredient in all the work that we're doing whether it was brand or strategy spaces now and as you mentioned kind of the world is evolved to. This is the area of practice. When i was doing this. There was not that conversation right. It was what tools are you gonna do to achieve this goal. We need to build something. That hasn't been built before as i mentioned talking before i worked in online education for kids in grades k. To twelve fifteen years ago and that's incredibly relevant today in the world we live in but think about what you would have had to do to get people to commit to educating their kids alive..

"I was the first student in believe twenty to twenty five years to get into an ivy league school and so the question for me was always that not a question. Why this space. But that i needed to be a part of this experience in this narrative and have the opportunity to compete and the space. I remember thinking about schools. And i looked at a lot of schools in their noses. Simple moment where we the question of at the time. What school did the president guilty and quest to kind of be. The best was that. This was an experience that i wanted to have and so i went for it and was able to have experienced met teachers and friends as we all do and we're in college or have experienced that became transformative but one of the teachers who really kind of blew me away in my experience. He was the first african american male teacher that i had at yale and remember walking into his class and i was the only black student there. And we handed this reaction will be each other's eyes and the class was called simply design and it was taught through the else lavar. My interest was going into design from an architectural business perspective. And i came into this class and i was able to study with the late. Bob reed who was a professor at yale for about forty five years the only african american professor to have that role in the school of art and he became a dear friend and mentor and really kind of encouragement. on excellence. enforce at work right and so that was my experience and yell and that was kind of my introduction formerly to design and really shaped the way. I thought about business strategy entrepreneurship and growth. And even when i wasn't in roles that directly touch design eat inform away i dealt with the world around me. So what was your time like while you were there. I mean i know we've had you know. Also other gale designed grass that have been on the show but for you during that time period. What was it like for you. So is incredible for me because i was a kid. In the undergrad space. So i wasn't in the grad school with the focus on the faa and and spaces there. This was yale for me was an opportunity to really be able to explore my broad interests over the space in which i could do classes and business and economics but also history and culture of the space in which i can look at architecture both now in in in the past it was a space in which i got a chance to be student leader in spaces with the black student alliance with Art history program with any space in there was really formative for me. So you appreciate these experiences a lot more when you look back at it but it was an incredible space you know some of the community involvement that i had been a part of as a high school student here in dc those faint the same issues challenges and opportunities presented themselves in haven at it yet and so it was an opportunity for me to grow as a leader and as a person. So what did you end up studying while you were there did you. Study design actually studied architecture and art. History okay all right. So as you're going through the programs there you graduate from yale. What was kind of your next step. Did you want to become an architect now that that was what you were studying. I had always wanted to become a developer. Wanted to be at this nexus of politics business and.

That's gonna build and have an impact on our profession on professionals in our community at large. Those are the types of programs that i'm interested in supporting having us build out and it's a different direction for us right to say we're looking at things are going to provide sustainable impact. So yeah we've had you here talking about a i g and how you're going to change the organization and everything but we want to know more about you the person so i know you're currently in washington. Dc is that what you're originally from. Yes i grew up here in dc and the proud thirty generation native washingtonian raising two little fork generation native washingtonian. And were you exposed a lot to kind of design and art and everything growing up. You know what we were exposed to exploring ideas and i grew up in. Dc and my dad was an in was the software engineer and minister and my mom was an educator and over the summers we would spend our time going to all the great free museums. Here we had to sony in in our backyard and gave me an opportunity to explore ideas for science and history and learning. But i was always exposed to the way things were put together. The how things were it. And so before. I even had the worst articulated design and thinking about changing things was always a part of my experience. Your dad was a software engineer. And a pastor. That's an interesting combination. It's very interesting. But my dad was a mathematician days of working on in peter science and i grew up in a family which service to community was a really a part of who we were and it was a part of every. Did so if you grow up in space in the quintessential black cultural experience my mom was a teacher. My dad was a preacher pride and in that experience in seeing leadership through service in community seeing an embrace of knowledge seeking embraced that you can change and make the world for better. So that's really a part of what shaped me as a person with shakes me as a leader as a friend as a husband and his father thinking of those things. What prompted you to go to yale. I mean you're right there in d. c. Of course there's a lot of great colleges in dc howard of course is one of them. Why yale what did you there because like any good seventeen year old. I didn't wanna stay at home. That's the practical expression of that fair enough. Yeah so my question is if you think back to near eastern time which i was growing up at the time i was going to. Dc public schools. The question for me was why not me right so i got into yale and from the high school i went to..

"What specific things are you going to bring to. Diversity inclusion and equity as it relates to the organization to its members. And i think it's an important question not just because you black. I mean you are but i mean it's an important question because this is something which has come up in a as history. I'd say perennially at least over the past thirty years there has been these little instances there's been task forces in symposia and it's cetera in in always seemed to change with whomever the executive director was a chain with rick. It changed with julie. It changed with i actually. I don't know what happened with barry. But it changed with barry. Now you're in the role. So what specific things are you going to bring to. Diversity inclusion and equity as it relates to a end to its members. Well i can say in a short word a lot from day one in coming to this role. This is something that's important to me both personally and professionally and it was one of the things that was a part of meeting accepting the role in thinking about the impact that we can and need to have so tangible things. Were doing in many ways. One of the first things i did was kind of reach out to our d. task force in talk about the fact that in the past a lot of the work that we done is an organization had been kind of centered in taskforce or small groups that are pulled together into your point which to happens a lot volunteer organizations being. Stop and start. Stop and start as personnel. Both volunteer and staff change in any one of the things. That's been important to me. Was to actually build the work that we do both for the and for design educators community into the actual functioning. Dna of the work that we're doing going forward for a so that the work extends from just beyond the task force to a real part of what we're doing so you've seen it if you get a chance to look at the content that we're doing from day one that i mentioned before our content has been more dynamic our content Spoken to diversity in ways in which we haven't done before it's also been a part of a thinking about leadership so when you think about a federated model you have a network of leaders throughout the country in all different experiences in spaces one of the things that makes our conversation today. Timely is we just finished our annual leadership retreat. And i was really encouraged in heartening to see. This was the largest gathering that we've ever had. We had over five hundred. Aig volunteer leaders come in and core part of the states was. How do we think about leadership training to reinvigorate re-equip and refocus our leadership and one of the key. Parts of our training actually dealt with anti-racism training diversity and equity. We built all of the topics into our path for training for our leaders which hadn't been something that have been done in this direction for way. These are ways in which we talked about that. We wanna equip our network in our community to be the best leaders that are required for today. When we look at the year coming forward. I work really closely with our task for shares of both the task force and our dec space. Which is our educators community. And we're working towards an agenda of some really dynamic programming and work. We're going to do for twenty twenty one for the organization but unlike pass you know. We had spaces that started up. And they've been initiatives or programs that have been in some ways orphaned on the side of law support resources and building this into the work that we do as an organization going on because my goal.

Start my own enterprise to next level and so professional organizations. When they're at their best they provide a community of support around that they five multiple pathways. They provide access to resources whether they're human financial mentorship or and. I think that we have opportunities to build and be better across the board. What we've been doing what i've been doing. The last seven eight months is really looking at that infrastructure to. How do we deliver on that. And we've been building out in really you know actual ways whether you look at our portfolio review or the way we've repurposing restructured our contents or the support. We have reinforcing what we're doing with design educators throughout our organization. They're really just the tip of our iceberg for what we hope to do going into twenty twenty one to bill stronger better more relevant professional design association. These are great things to hear. Be completely honest. I love to hear that. Because i could see how especially with the fact there are student groups and then professional chapters and even in the different chapters. There's different kind of initiatives and stuff like the way that i see or would like to see. Ai is that it's a part of your design journey every step of the way. It's there for you. It's there for you as a student. It's there for you as an entrepreneur. It's there for you in house. It's even there for you if you've gotten to like you know mid career senior level like is part of your journey all along those those different stops in your career. It's almost like maria in the conversations. That i was having when we talked about our goal and objective thinking about our programming our digital website in space where i said i want any designer anyone connected to design community to come to our experience a come to our site and find themselves find doing today or the space in which they aspire to go to a we want this to be a reflection of this more comprehensive more open and accessible design profession right and so these are things we're going to do in it's it's anchored with the tactical resources it's with. How do i as you mentioned before. How do i thrive at what i'm doing today. How do i make the case in plan for where i wanna be tomorrow all connected to this professional journey that we call design now.

My goal is not to just have a speak soul by itself and not have something that's reinforced by our membership in the design community. Right we want to have that that inter connectivity but yes. I agree wholeheartedly that there's that you know we have a place in. That's where we should be elevating in terms of advocating for a variety of issues and concerns that impact our profession. And so what we're looking. What rebuilding restricting that through our engagement directly with members and research in background building that the organization over years has not been built to do that.

Ai has kind of felt at times to be mostly reactive and not proactive. It may be responding to things that happened but not necessarily getting out in front of issues is something that's kind of knew that you're planning on kind of implementing within the organization. It's interesting to frame it like that. It's so much a part of how i think. The role of a professional association should be that. You haven't even thought about it as as a break from from what your actions on before but really a pathway for what we need to be right there to be in. We're not you know established and set up today but that will evolve to that we can take leading positions on things that impact our profession. I that's unique role and important responsibility of a professional association. Now it's not an easy road and you want to work in concert with stakeholders with your members of industry to make sure that you're advocating for the right positions in spaces but you know that role Being able to speak for positive change for the entire profession is something that a professional association should do. We.

"Really what we've come and over the last six to eight months we've had a really aggressive agenda to find ways that we can rebuild in in chain some of the trajectory that we have here is a legacy organization often when you have a legacy organization. There are things that you've just done because you've always done them right. Bad doesn't mean they're all focused. It doesn't mean you're not welding attention but these are things that you've continually done. The challenges the profession. The world in our lives evolve around that until your legacy organization. You can always kind of fall into a trap in which this is the way we've always done it as i mentioned to colleague before one of the things. That's going to hallmark of my background and professional spaces that organizations. Don't bring me in to do the same thing. They've always been doing right. That's with my background and experience in both startup and reengineering and thinking oh dynamic ways of going forward the mir choice of bringing me in as an executive leader signals from the board in your organization. We're going to do things differently. And so with the design profession. It's an incredible moment because you think about the energy and passion as part of our professional community now think about applying that to the challenges and opportunities that we face now. It's a space in which. I can only be hopeful. It's station which. I can only be excited when i see the skill the passion and the opportunity designers one of the things. That's been really important for me to think about it. When i've had conversations with designers all throughout our community they all speak to these moments in which they had this magic and they fell in love with no matter where their relationships are. Today the organization has always been this moment. One of my goals is to bring back that magic for everyone now. What's interesting thing about. Aig i think starts with the name. It's the institute for graphic arts so from the onset it really focused on one type of design visual design. of course now. there's product designed as experienced design..

"More to get to stay with us. We are. Of course, continuing to monitor the breaking news out of Jinya tech where eleven are dead mass shooting six in the hospital. The shooter has lost his life as well. We don't have many detail on the co worker appears to enter the Virginia Beach municipal facility and began firing. Police were there fairly quickly, but eleven people dead six hospitalized tonight in the latest mass shooting here in this country. I'm joined now, chairman of the house homeland security committee, congressman Bennie Thompson, who is a democrat from Mississippi and let me start on this topic. I surf, that's okay. The Democrats have passed two pieces of gun control legislation out of the house with their house majority in the first few months that they had control. What's your reaction watching this unfold in Virginia tonight with I vote is, you know, all of us have a deep sympathy for the families in those individuals impact. But on a moral note the access to gun. The continue easy access to guns is a problem in this country. The fact that people would certain illnesses Milton assist can still get guns background checks not enforced. And so he narrows, and obviously, individuals who, who have Milian is's can get guns. On the other hand, we don't as a country provide the services for those individuals who have this, and that is a challenge for us. And I think something congress is going to have to step forward to an address. There's two piece of legislation not mistaken that come out of the house on background checks, one sort of closing the loopholes the other extending the time in which those background checks processed d think Mitch McConnell, should take those up in the Senate. Well, you know, Mitch McConnell should do a lot on the Senate. We do. I work on a house. But the cost loophole Bill, which would close loophole that occur. They would also help. But again, we need to full it phone mental health in this country. Mitch McConnell has basically say he's not going to do anything. We can't even get disaster. Americans passed in this country. So. Just by I would just note there that the Senate did pass a disaster relief funding problem right now is the Republicans who keep objecting unanimous consent to through in your house. Well, you flew, correct? But they held it up on the Senate longer than normal. Right. We'd normally do I work on the house side? But there's so many legislative initiatives, that die in the Senate that brings me to another initiative in the house that may very well die in the Senate, which has been the topic at the front of mines, I think of a many this week for the House, Democratic caucus and that is the matter of impeachment speaker, Nancy Pelosi on Jimmy Kimmel last night. Once again, articulating her vision of y it doesn't make sense to begin a formal impeachment inquiry. Why it makes sense to go slowly and carefully in, in her mind. You're a member of leadership. You're a chair of a committee, and you have come out believe this week if I'm not mistaken in favor of beginning of formal impeachment inquiry, what, what changed your mind? How'd you get there? Well very easy. I've been in my district over week. I've traveled to about eighteen counties over seven hundred miles. I've talked to a lot of people and to the person everybody said for the you all going to do about President Trump. They not sometime. Call him another name, but clearly, they are disappointed in his leadership. Some of them will even tell me Chris. You know, I don't even want my children grandchildren to what the president on TV and mold. He doesn't fit the standard as Americans that president shoot. So I've heard enough and I up until I came home this weekend. I had resisted. Moving fall what? But, you know, I represent this district and I listened to the people and I heard them congressman I gotta tell you, that is really interesting to me for this reason some of the conventional wisdom, that I think has been communicated, and I think is, is believed by many people in your caucus and leadership is that impeachment is a Esa teric concern, or it's a obsession of people that are political junkies, but not real people living their lives..

President, President Trump And Congressman Bennie Thompson discussed on Westwood One Daily News Flash Briefing

"President Trump's recent tweets about freshman democratic congresswoman Ilhan Omar's getting a lot of pushback correspondent, Linda Kenyon, has that story began with his speech delivered Bundy congresswoman to the council on American Islamic relations or care in her speech. The Minnesota democrat referred to fellow Muslims losing civil liberties after the nine eleven attacks because quoting here. Some people did something, that's all the speech. She gave. And I saw nothing wrong with congressman Bennie Thompson is the chairman of the house homeland security committee. He tells ABC's this week President Trump took this as an opportunity to attack congresswoman ohm. When he re tweeted a video edited to imply that Omar was being dismissive of the nine eleven attacks. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders saw loud wrong with Omar speech. And I think that it's a good thing that the president is calling her out for those comments. Also, speaking on ABC's this week Sanders said she didn't understand why Democrats were in calling her out to they look the other way where presentative Thompson says the president is going too far. If I look at what the president says on a daily basis, we criticize him almost by the hour. The president's tweet containing that video is being described as an incitement to violence, Sarah Sanders dismisses that assessment, the president is wishing no ill will and certainly not violence towards anyone. But the president is absolutely. And should be calling out the congresswoman for her not only one time, but history of antisemitic comments house voted earlier this session to condemn anti-semitism and a host of other issues after Omar made some comments that were viewed as antisemitic tropes Sanders. Said that vote didn't go far enough. They do these water down pushbacks that frankly, they feel like give them enough cover Thompson SIS. Speaking out is one thing, we're a nation of laws democracy, free speech is here. But Thompson says the president's re tweet of that video viewed more than nine million times is quite another matter, especially if it leads to violence. That's why house speaker Nancy Pelosi. Hold on Trump to take down the video targeting. The congresswoman a video Pelosi described as disrespectful and dangerous. In her statement Pelosi says following the president's tweet, I spoke with the sergeant at arms to ensure that capitol police are conducting a security assessment to safeguard congresswoman, Omar her family and her

U.S. faces 'crisis' at southern border, Nielsen says

"Security secretary Kristen Nielsen says a legal immigration has prompted humanitarian crisis at the southern border in a house hearing yesterday. Nielsen warned that illegal immigration is spiraling out of control. And she said border officials are on track to apprehend nine hundred thousand undocumented immigrants this year alone. And she also defended President Trump's efforts to build that massive border wall. During the hearing Mississippi democrat Bennie Thompson accused Nielsen of evading questions about migrant kids being detained in cages, she replied, we don't use cages for children, California Democrat net. Baragan again said that she has witnessed asylum seekers being turned away from a US port of entry despite Nielsen's claim that the US doesn't do that. Also challenged the Trump administration the democrat in the net. Baragan also charge. The Trump administration. Migrant family separation policy. Nielsen said that there's no such policy. And baragan called that comment. Outrageous. That's when Representative Kathleen rice jumped in and ripped the secretary on Twitter. This is ally lying to congress under oath is a felony the last person who did that is going to prison. So they sparred back and forth yesterday, but pretty clear that the homeland security secretary Kristen Nielsen is firmly behind the president's effort to build that massive border wall.

Dems Dismiss Trump's Shutdown-Ending DACA Deal as a 'Non-Starter'

"President Trump's proposed deal on Saturday. Doesn't seem to have made any headway with Democrats. Vice President Mike Pence spoke on Fox News, President Trump did here was he he set the table for a deal. Mississippi democratic congressman Bennie Thompson on ABC's. This week says Democrats objections are more about how the president is characterizing the idea of a physical barrier on the southern border. I don't think Democrats are opposed to any physical barriers is just the president constantly evolves. His description of the wall just as he indicated Mexico's gonna pay for whatever was there. Thompson is on the house homeland security committee.
