Fox News Agrees to $15M Settlement With Melissa Francis Over Pay Gap
"So Melissa Francis, a friend of a friend of mine, from back in the Fox days. She left under a weird circumstances. And she was so she filed a lawsuit and settled out of court for like what millions of dollars. I mean, what, $13 million, I've heard from 13 to $18 million because over at Fox, they were paying the men more than they were paying the women. And she says, that's not right. And sure enough, the settlement is a pretty spectacular. As a matter of fact, during the conversations, and I really can't go into great detail because of some of my issues with Fox. But I can say this, the person she negotiated the contract with allegedly told her, look, men get paid more than women and that's the way it's got to be. I'm so anyway. Fox just had to fork over a lot of cash anyway.
Canadian Parliament Member Respontds to Trudeau Attack
"BEE dot com slash hi everybody. Dot com slash prager. I think while I had prime minister Steven Harper previous prime minister of Canada on the show and I did a PragerU interview with him at one of our gala events, but I've never had a member of the Canadian parliament on the show. So let me introduce Melissa alliance. She is a member of the parliament of parliament in Canada. And she is a woman of courage, let me give you an example. February 2022, I reported this, by the way, on the show. In response to a question raised by Melissa alliance regarding the usage of emergency act the emergency act, prime minister Justin Trudeau replied to her by stating quote. Conservative Party members can stand with people who wave swastikas. She's a member of the Conservative Party. In response, Melissa Lance been stated I am a strong Jewish woman. And a member of this house, and the descendant of Holocaust survivors. I have never been made to feel less except for today when the prime minister accused me of standing with swastikas. I think he owes me an apology, I'd like an apology. So folks, even if you're not into gambling, what would you bet? That Trudeau apologized or not. Also she has been fighting. The man I consider bringing Canada to be more like Cuba than any other North American example. I wrote about that few months ago. She's been fighting his COVID dictates. And supported the Canadian trucker protest, again a member of the parliament of Canada. So Melissa lancement, you're a woman of courage, so I have a question that is nothing to do with the philosophical question because it's one that I think about a lot. Why are you courageous? That's a really that's a really good question. I think there needs to be somebody that stands up in this parliament for common sense, you know, whether it be against deployment minister that is othered in entire part of the Canadian population and in one who shows his true colors on the floor of the House of Commons or whether it's the everyday things like the nonsensical restrictions and vaccine mandates that we are still clinging to in this country. I think somebody has to be courageous and I figure that I'm already here. So here's a theory and then I'll get to the specifics of Canada in just a moment. I think I've asked this to all courageous people. And I think that people like you almost have no choice, it's almost like saying to somebody, why are you a righty or a lefty? I just am. And of course there's an element of choice on whether to be courageous. So anyway, thank God you exist. That's my bottom line. So first of all, I'm

Tiffany Justice: 'We Don't Co-Parent With the Government'
"A Tiffany, you describe what you experienced in your school board with your four years there. What is the end state? Have you managed to get to a point where, yes, they've taken control. Yes, they've intimidated parents. They've even helped to isolate individual students who weren't politically correct. Are they just trying to soak confusion or do they just want everybody to be forced to obey their ideology, whatever it is, transgenderism, social justice, what have you? I think that it's definitely orchestrated to force us to have to believe and buy into an ideology. Absolutely. And I think parents are very much seeing that. And what they're saying is that we don't co parent with the government. These are areas in our children's lives. We have fundamental rights to our children to direct their upbringing. And the government needs to get out of our houses, right? Yeah, well, we know this is a socialist concept that children don't belong to families. Right. The state owns the children. And we've heard people say this in American media recently. Melissa Harris Perry was saying it a couple of years ago. A 100%. This isn't new. But I think only recently have parents really, they're awake now, but now they're really seeing it. And I want to tell you about some of the instances happening in Florida. And why HB 1557 was so important. All right, so explain. So talk about HB. 1557. 1557 and how it became a reality. Yeah, no, absolutely. So there were a number of different important bills in Florida this year and we're working really hard to get all of that information out to our chapters. HB 1557 is the bill that was called the don't say gay bill by the media. What a ridiculous moniker to give to good solid parental rights legislation. But I think that's why they had to do it. Well, yeah, because otherwise they have to admit what it is, which is the anti grooming Bill.

San Francisco Voters Oust Three School Board Members in Recall Vote
"As you know, parents are rising up to take control of their kids education, or taking back control from the public sector teacher unions from the powers that have been teaching this woke orthodoxy, this radical, sexual education, mask mandates, vaccine mandates, and quietly below the radar, there was a recall effort that was launched in San Francisco to recall school board members. Last evening, San Francisco school board members, three of them were ousted in a landslide recall vote landslide. San Francisco has successfully recalled three members of the city school board. I'm reading from the post millennial dot com, after a vote Tuesday, showing that residents of San Francisco were overwhelmingly in favor of removing the progressives from their posts. And the demographic that turned out in large numbers to remove the school board members were Asian American voters. One of the main reasons were they saw the policies of the school board to be anti Asian and their right. Because CRT was starting to be used for admission policies and public comments. For example, Asian Americans were being explicitly discriminated against in admissions to schools across San Francisco. We already know that's been happening in colleges. State senator Melissa Melendez shared the results, which revealed the school board vice president Allison Collins, school board president Gabriela Lopez, and fagua, maliga would all be removed from the school board. With those in favor, compromising over 70% of the vote. So when they were actually put up on a ballot, 70% of the people in the local area wanted these school board members removed. San Francisco mayor London breed. I think she was the one that was in the nightclub where she said she was feeling the energy for not wearing a mask. She said, quote, the voters of this city have delivered a clear message that the school board most focus on the essentials of delivering a well run school system above all else. She has previously slammed the school board for being too concerned with political agendas. This is the same school board. I don't know if it's a specific school board, but it's part of the whole kind of geographic educational complex that wanted to rename the Abraham Lincoln school. Because Abraham Lincoln was a white supremacist.
The FBI, Pfizer, and Deep State-Pharma Collusion with James O' Keefe
"So James, I want to ask you about the story that broke yesterday. You guys have a tendency to break news very late in the evening. I'm sure there is a science to it or there's a reason to it. And it says DoJ documents obtained by judicial watch, Tom fitton, great guy, confirms existence of communications between the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Pfizer about your organization project veritas tell us about this James. That's right. Tom fitton that judicial watch, who's a friend of mine, he issued a foia request into the Department of Justice for all communications between The New York Times and the DoJ and Pfizer pharmaceutical and DoJ. And shockingly, a document which was came back from the Department of Justice FBI indicating they do indeed have communications between the FBI and Pfizer regarding communications regarding project veritas and myself. So we released these documents last night. I made a video about it. And the question is, why on earth is Pfizer pharmaceutical talking to the FBI about journalists or journalism, Charlie? And further, you know, the CEO of Pfizer had made a statement back in November. I think it was November 9th, where he said that he has been talking to the FBI about disinformation and dark, dark groups. He's clearly referring to groups like project veritas, even though we're not dark, where the opposite of dark. And also we to Charlie remember, we did two stories about Pfizer, one whistleblower within Pfizer Melissa mcatee and emails showing that they were hiding information. Those were the vice president of Pfizer's words, not mine, and also a scientist within Pfizer saying antibodies are stronger than their own vaccine. So I reported on this as journalists do or are supposed to do. And now we come to find out that the FBI is talking to Pfizer about
What Does Sean Spicer Think of Melissa McCarthy's SNL Impression of Him?
"Remember Melissa McCarthy from Saturday Night Live? Yeah. Remember, she would do an impersonation of Sean Spicer. Do you remember how fun that was? Well, guess what? I got the actual guy, Sean Spicer, Sean Spicer. Welcome to the program. Congratulations on the new book called radical nation, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris's dangerous plan for America. Great to see you. Good to see you. For a second, I actually thought you might have Melissa. I was ready to ask a question. I was going to say, but you're the real thing. Who wants the actress when we can get the guy spicy himself, okay? It's kind of funny because Saturday Night Live rarely does stuff that is to my mind. I mean, if they were making fun of me, maybe I wouldn't see their way. But it struck me as a tremendously affectionate homage. Like there was just something about it that I don't know if you ever talked about that publicly. But there's something about the way she did it that made me whether I knew you or not, like you because of because of what she did. Did you did you feel that or were you just annoyed? So the first one that they did, I thought was like, not only funny, but let's be honest. It was kind of well deserved. I had a tough week. And made a few missteps. And so I thought it was like, okay, that's a little bit of a jab. You gotta laugh at yourself. And so well deserved. The subsequent ones I thought were really starting to get personal. And while they definitely had a hint of humor in them, I thought that they were more like mean spirited than funny. Actually, that's interesting, 'cause I may be missed those. I may be missed those. I mean, I'm not even kidding. I'm not even kidding. The super soaker one got all the attention, and then I don't look. I don't remember, since they weren't making fun of me. I don't know the
'Science and the Mind of the Maker' Author Melissa Cain Travis on the 'Maker Thesis'
"I am talking to the author of science and the mind of the maker with the conversation between faith and science reveals about God Melissa Cain Travis. We were just going to talk about something. You just mentioned it Melissa, tell us again. So the central thesis of my book science in the mind of the maker is something that I call them makers thesis. And this goes beyond the idea that science gives us evidence that points towards an intelligent creator. What I mean when I say the maker thesis is that when we look at diverse branches of the natural sciences, we actually see marks of rationality in all of these different areas of science. But in addition to that and corresponding to it quite beautifully, is the fact that we have inquisitive higher intelligent life on Planet Earth whose rationality is attuned in just the right way to be able to detect the rationality in. Okay, now I hate to break it to you, but that might make sense to you. And it might even make sense to me, but that's not easy what you just said, because I remember Hugh Ross, who introduced me to a lot of this stuff, when he was talking about this, I think it was on this program, like 5 years ago or something. I remember thinking like, that's a complex idea. So let's break this down. When you even talk about something that rationality, I think a lot of people go like, what do you mean exactly by rationality? I think it's a deep philosophical issue, isn't it? Like when you're saying that if I look at the world of science, the idea that it is somehow understandable is itself so taken for granted. It seems so innate to me that it's hard for me to step outside and marvel at it. Does that make sense to you? Yeah, it totally does. So back in the mid 20th century physicist by the name of Eugene wigner. Wrote an essay that has since become quite famous. Now, it's important to understand that wigner was not a theist in any sense of the word. We could probably best describe him as a happy agnostic. But he wrote this essay, it's freely available to read online. And the title of the essay is the unreasonable effectiveness of mathematics in the natural sciences. And what he did was he explored something that Albert Einstein had remarked about repeatedly, but just had not elaborated on. And that was the mathematical comprehensibility of the
Author Melissa Cain Travis and Eric Discuss How Life Came Into Being
"I'm talking to Melissa Kane Travis. She's the author of science and the mind of the maker with the conversation between faith and science reveals about God. Let's get specific Melissa. There are a lot of exciting chapters in here. I never know where to go first because I like it all, right? But the idea of how life came into being from non life. I don't remember if you deal with that in a whole chapter if you just touch on that in the book. But what they call a biogenesis. Do you talk about that? I do. There's a chapter in there that talks about the problem posed for naturalistic origin of life theories. When we consider the specified complexity found in the DNA molecule. And for the listeners who are familiar with doctor Stephen Meyer, who you mentioned earlier, he's written an entire book on that, right? Signature in the cell. So I drew on Myers work for that chapter. Well, it's interesting because I came to it a little bit through Stephen Meyers, but also through doctor James tour, who's also down there in Houston at rice university. And what I always find funny is the fact that we never talk about this. about it. But if you go up to your average person and say, okay, life appears on earth, single celled form 4 billion years ago. How did that happen? I think most people just go what do you mean? I don't know. How did it happen? It's like you would think that that would be the most basic question. Science. Okay, science. The most basic questions. There's life. We are life. How did life come into being? And it seems like the more we know about the complexity of DNA, the complexity of single cell, the more we know that we have no idea how life came into being. But that's a pretty big thing to admit. So nobody's really been very public about it, at least on the non Christian side of the
How 'Science and the Mind of the Maker' Author Melissa Cain Travis Got Into the World of Christian Apologetics
"Melissa Cain Travis, she's an assistant Professor of Christian apologetics at Houston baptist university among other things. And she came out with a book just a couple of years ago called science and the mind of the maker, what the conversation between faith and science reveals about God. A lot of the stuff that I'm excited about, she is also excited about. I said, we've got to get her on the program. So Melissa, Kane Travis, welcome. Thank you. I'm glad to be with you. Well, so how did you get into this world? Because what I always am amazed by is how many people just don't know anything about this. When I talk to Christians who seem to have a reasonable faith, they seem to, but they themselves have never heard of a lot of this. So I was excited when I saw your book because you've more than just heard about it. You've written about it. How did you find your way into this subject? Let's start there. Well, it's a long and convoluted story that we probably don't have time to tell in its entirety. But to make a very long story short, my background isn't biotechnology. My undergraduate degrees in general biology and after undergrad I decided to enter the field of BioTech while I figured out what I wanted to do in terms of graduate education. And for 5 years, I found myself repeatedly sitting up at a lab bench doing my work and having a conversation with the scientists that worked alongside me in my lab and finding myself at a loss for answers to big questions that they asked me because they knew that I was a devoted Christian, but I was also deeply interested in the natural sciences. And I call it my embarrassing series of events that eventually led me to start digging deeper and finally discovering this crazy term apologetics that I'd never heard in my entire life. So I started doing self study and after a few years I found myself in the graduate program in science and religion at viola university. And it was there that I was exposed to all the wonderful authors who have become my intellectual
Nick Cannon Looses Infant Son
"Nick Cannon, who I make a lot of fun of, lost his baby, zen. He had some absolutely devastating news, he said it on his talk show. He broke down a bit. Well, explaining to everybody that is 7th kid, zen, who's 5 months old, died from a brain tumor. He had this baby with a beautiful model named Melissa Scott. And the kid was dealing with health issues from the start. Nick said, you know, I felt like he had a nasal problem, a little bit of a cough. He had a big head, but I thought it was just a cannon head, 'cause all my kids have big heads and I'm watching him talk about this on TV. And the segment began with him showing the picture of the day, apparently that's what he does. I don't watch Nick Cannon's show, that's what he does. The picture of the day was his baby. And everybody in the audience is so thrilled to see the baby. They have no idea the news that's about to come. And Nick then goes on to say that when the kid was two months old, he developed what they thought was a scientist issue and they noticed his head was bigger like I said. And the doctor said the fluid had started to build up and the kids had and they discovered a tumor and they had to go do immediate surgery. And Nick kind of broke down and he said that the little baby took a turn for the worse on Thanksgiving and the tumor in his brain grew really quickly. And he went to go spend time in California for the last weekend with his son. Now his show is taped in New York. We went back to California. And this past Sunday, he said, I needed, I felt like I needed to take my son to the beach. I wanted to be near the ocean. And that's where he held his kid for the last time. I'm getting choked up. I don't like this guy, Nick Cannon. I mean, I should not. I shouldn't dislike him, but he gets on my nerves. He's a fucking Hollywood asshole, but I made a lot of fun of him over the years impregnating every girl he meets, trying to get a harem wearing that turbine wears. Always complaining of racism at every job he's got. I just find him a pain in the ass. And he went, he wanted to see a sunrise. With that child, and just think about that image of him holding that baby on the beach to see his

It Used to Be Controversial to Say 'Your Kids Don't Belong to You'
"Now Melissa Harris Perry is not a name that you might know, but Melissa Harris Perry was someone that I knew of, quite well. Because she used to be on MSNBC all the time, she was considered to be the more radical voice on cable television for years. Another Marxist. I even seen her very much recently she was fired from MSNBC. She was joy read before joy Reid. And honestly, a little bit more articulate than joy Reid. Let me tell you. Just kind of the ability to make arguments really quickly. I don't really know what happened to Melissa Harris Perry. Perhaps she was too radical for her own good. She said things out loud that she shouldn't have said I think she has her own political consulting firm. She was fired in 2016, three years after this particular clip, surface. I remember when this clip came out, people used to get fired for saying this. People used to have to retreat for saying this very clip. This used to be considered controversial this used to be considered something that not worth commenting, where she said, remember your kids don't belong to you. Now she's a professor and a political commentator. And now this viewpoint is held by the progressive collectivist status Democrat left it's just that she happened to say it out loud. Play cut 45. We have never invested as much in public education as we should have because we've always had kind of a private notion of children. Your kid is yours and totally your responsibility. We haven't had a very collective notion of these are our children. So part of it is we have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families and recognize the kids belong to whole communities. Once it's everybody's responsibility and not just the households, then we start making better investments. We have to realize the kids are a community object, not that it's part of your nuclear family, of course not. Now, interestingly enough, she's now an employee of national public radio so your tax dollars are paying for Melissa Harris
Selling Action in Poker Tournaments
"Well the first question is quite easy in just goes back to what you were saying. You start it's taking probably between twenty two thousand seventeen. But i wonder if you can each remember. The first time are sold at auction at your feelings were about doing so is there any doubt was something he just flew into confidence. The first time i ever sold action. I do remember it was for my i d. I wasn't really ruled. Free petits at the time but one of the top poker players in our run me up and said he was interested in buying a big piece indie potato so i ended up setting fifty percent of myself and turning it into rosary modest by international. It was more common the time but it was fairly new back then. Seemed to be most What that was a poker player looking to have a sweat. Apart from the fact that he was playing the event himself it was very ad hoc like that people have already any idea of what the correct markups should be. So yeah. I think that was two thousand nine. Roughly yeah when i look back i would say that it was definitely an online event and it was probably relatively small cleaning things where you know you might satellite into. Ns tops or w coup or something like that online. And then it's sorta seemed prudent to maybe twelve and then maybe salad trumka's well. I remember the first proper Was twelve and a half percent to a couple of friends. When i qualified for the full series in two thousand and nine i had my way from the twenty five dollars. Satellite to a to k package and in my mind that was trying to cover the cost to go to the live events. I thought it'd be smart. 'cause i wasn't old at the time i was right in growing your mode when it used to play forty five months and this was for chefs and yeah went very well and i ended up having to my friends. grams for those small pieces was a fifteen hundred events. I think i only settled about two hundred bucks worth but the pin a good purchase by them. I didn't begrudge it to them. Because they were kind of people who i used to do. A lot of swapping with back when i lived in the states and played

I'm okay once i leave here so you have all these different people. You have to figure out a way to need all their needs because once you the goal of any organization is retention right. You want to keep people good people working for you. Because that's what makes you successful really really interesting. Hadn't even thought about that. This is why. I love these conversations because there's so many great ideas that are that are surfaced here. I love the idea of meeting your employees where they are regardless of of the life stage. Because they're going to need and want different things. And what a fantastic way to do that by listening to their employees and rewarding doing you know thinking about rewards and recognition in a way that matches. What your employees want and need versus. Just sort of a blanket one-size-fits-all which we know is goes against the whole idea of inclusivity. Anyway that's fantastic. I while sorry. I'm just really it's got me thinking right and so now i'm kind of sputtering but that's a really really melissa and think of me you know this about me. Think of me right. i'm genetics. I'm a single mom right and i also have with my parents so i'm salvage generation so for me. If i was to have a job i would require. I would love a job. That would give me that flexibility to be able to go pick up my son if he falls at school. I don't want to be judged because hey oh my goodness there goes rachel again. Something happened with her son. Or oh no. She's working from home again because something happened to her that i want to be able to bring my whole south to work. This is who i am. I am a single mom and with my parents. I'm the sandwich generation. I'm doing the best that i can accommodate me the best way you can you know and another thing to think about generational intelligence for example. The baby boomers the men. They don't quite understand why these young men want paternal leave because they never took paternally. You get what i'm saying. Everybody in the same company but the younger men want to take time off when their wives or significant others have babies where they have a baby. So it's making sure that everything everybody is able to bring their best selves to work. You know so. They can do the best job few so. There's so many things to consider. And what i'm finding and what's exciting to me is. We're all learning from each other. you know. well i'm gonna. I'm gonna pause it there because i think we unite kid carry on this conversation forever. But i think you've given us some really really exceptional things to think about the first. Is you know that change is inevitable and thriving his a choice and for organizations that are looking in thinking about how are they going to thrive amidst the changing nature of the workforce and as you know as employees enter different stages of their life. I think the thing that you really really is sticking out to me is thinking about the different needs of your employees and how you can meet them at these different spots in their life and the idea that you know one group of employees may want one thing at another main want the other and that's okay and that that is also equitable in terms of meeting people where they are and what's going to best support them. I think the the other thing that you just mentioned around learning from each other and that transfer of knowledge through that reciprocal mentoring is a really really interesting piece. That you brought up. I think an that is really interesting because you you only transfer sort of this social cultural knowledge but the institutional knowledge as well that you have you potentially lose as your employees start to retire so there's a whole bunch of benefits around but intergenerational reciprocal mentoring so i wanna thank you so much rachel for sharing.

Just as one of my favorite underused strategies so happy to dive right in for those of you haven't met the founder and wire where i help business owners wash their own podcasts and unskilled them up and with pinterest. This is a strategy bloggers have been using for years and as podcast host. Obviously we all kind of look to other podcasters to see what we're up to. But i also think it's march look at youtubers at bloggers at social media folks just to see. What strategies can we borrow for them to use for our podcasts and so one of the biggest ones for me is pinterest. so impinge started. I would say it was round. She thousand eight or nine ish. I think people were using it mostly for recipes and even still today people kind of associate pinterest with only recipes but truthfully every single topic is on interest nowadays and the biggest difference between interests and say other social platforms is that pinterest is actually a search engine so people go to pinterest. There's a search bar on the top. They search or something that they're looking for and they see a whole series of pins and those pins answer their the question and when you click on a pen it looks like an image but it takes you to somebody's website so for us it would go back to one of our podcast episodes and to me. That's what's so different about pinterest. Compared to socials is just the fact that people go there with the intent of finding those answers and instagram. I mean i'm just going to be on my feet scrolling through all the puppies that are coming up. I'm not necessarily trying to leave instagram. Nor do they really want you to so just just that alone.

"So that being the case why not leverage diversity and inclusion to make more money there are some people that approaches work from a soleus social justice perspective that this is exclusively about social justice. And i look at it a little differently. I see the social justice peace as the benefit that comes from it. it's the after effect. We need to have a social justice lens attached to the work absolutely because we need to be looking at an ultimately ensure that. We're we're succeeding at what we're always trying to increasing the number of women in leadership increasing representation of people of color etcetera so we can't take our eyes off the prize but that doesn't mean that we have to shy away from the idea that this can be good for business and in fact i think for particularly for for profit companies. It's important to look at it through that lens because ultimately that's what matters is how much money your company makes and if you can make more money by having a diverse workforce having a diverse customer base being more inclusive employer or supplier fantastic. Everyone benefits from that well. There's also the a redistribution of wealth as well right. So i mean so if you're looking at this through the social justice lens if you're supporting businesses if your supporting a diverse vendors you're putting money into companies and communities that have been disproportionately affected for looking at race or for putting money into lgbtq plus organizations right these are. This is a great way that you can still achieve your social justice objectives but you're also making an impact monetarily which is also essential.

You're probably paying more attention to black history month this year than ever before. But how do you owner black history month. If you're not black. What happens march i. How do we move beyond performative ally ship at the personal level and actively engage in antiracism and equity work that is needed to transform our lives and our workplaces. Now some of you might know. I have a phd in black history and my research focused specifically on the history of black student activism and blocked protests in the early twentieth century. And because of my background. I often get questions from friends and colleagues who are interested in knowing more about black history anti-racism in the ways they can be more engaged as allies. So in this episode. We're going to explore the roots of black history month beginning with its origins in the us and its later adoption in canada. Dan we'll look at some of the concrete ways you personally engage with black history month this february and beyond in nineteen twenty six when carter g. woodson a block historian. I proposed the idea of dedicating a week to celebrating black history and culture. This was a radical idea. In jim crow america were life was literally separated into black and white american history. Books were absent of any of the achievement of black americans. Woodson's call for a celebration of black history and black culture was part of a larger movement at the time among black students in black scholars to have the achievements of black americans included in the teachings. Schools and colleges woods originally chose the second week february to celebrate what was then called negro history week because it encompassed the birthdays of frederick douglas. And abraham lincoln and most black americans were already celebrating these birthdays at the time. Now negro history week continued until the mid nineteen sixties when at the height of the modern civil rights movement. There's a push by activists to extend negro history week into a month long celebration and in nineteen seventy-six president gerald ford decreed black history month to be a national observance the roots of black history month in canada. Go back to nineteen seventy eight. When dr daniel g hill and wilson oh brooks who were the founders of the ontario black history society presented a position to the city of toronto to have february proclaimed as black history month..

Unfortunately the reality of the market is when recruiters of all types are screening resumes. It typically becomes an exercise in exclusion not inclusion so disheartening.

Our goal is to leave you with the tools. You need to drive change in your own life both personally and professionally one. Welcome everyone back to part two of our special two part addition of just one q or these two episodes. We've been talking about a very pressing topic mental health with winter quickly approaching pandemic fatigue creeping in and the prolonged effects of remote work taking their toll. We thought it was a good time for us to blow the lid off of the shame that can surround mental health and take a proactive. Look at how we can best prepare for the months ahead. In the last episode we took a look at how the workplace has changed as a result of the covid nineteen pandemic what mental health professionals are looking out for and how coaching or counseling. Support your mental wellbeing. And what the difference between the two are today. We're going to continue our conversation and dig deeper into this topic so for today's burning q. How can employers and people leaders blow the lid off of the shame of mental health to best support their employees to answer today's question. I'm joined again by rachel. Hi rachel thanks so much for coming back. Rachel is a therapist. Certified professional coach certified t. e. dr therapist instructor and supervisor and she runs red. Maple coaching and counseling. So rachel for today's burning q. How can employers in leaders blow the shame of mental health in the workplace to best support their employees. Such a good question and it's such a big one. And i think obviously a few different things first of all shame of any kind whether it's mental health or anything. Shame about secrets right. It's about getting quiet and finding sort of that. We don't have language to talk about things in an open way. That's what feeds shame no matter what the topic is and for the in the topic of mental. How really what this is about. Is.

"We need that more now. In pandemic than ever before because uncertainty is higher is anxiety is higher that the bomb to anxiety and uncertainty that we experience in our is one of the key. Things is keeping solid connections around ourselves. We know that you know people who are you know. We look look at it. This people who are at the top of their game piece performers in any industry are generally surrounded by highly highly supportive relationships. Get there by themselves right. Yeah so that supportiveness that you know all the things that come with that empathy talking in an open way being able to validate one another's experiences all that kind of stuff. We need that more in the face of their than we ever did Stressors are higher but yet the ways in which we get that have lower so this is part of the problem. This is which i think really innovative workplaces designing around right now. So red maple is coaching and counseling. And i know that you work with a lot of leaders and you're in the corporate space. Maybe you can tell us about how you're working with some of those top performers and what you're seeing that's out there and maybe give us for those of us who don't know what's the difference between coaching counselor. Yeah for sure. So we go back to the continuum. Here's how we think about it. Traditionally counseling services are really suited for that zero to minus three crowd. It's people that are trained to do counselling work that are trained to do. Psychotherapy were trained in a model which around symptom management causation and effect. Were really trained in classification of how we think about these kinds of things depression anxiety. Adhd that's her lens. In that world the coaching world is really zero to plus three is of interest ranks. It's about brand development. It's about at the top of scale leadership and culture and contribution and so you can imagine the things that go wrong. We put people in the wrong bucket right. What happens if someone who's probably suited more for coaching ends up on the therapy couch. We might tend to pathology is or otherwise mishandle. Some of the experiences of that working professional should likewise if we end up with somebody who really is a professional coming in the coaching door. But who really has a mental wounds illnesses to deal with before we can get there. So that's why. I opened up red maple to kind of function the way that it does. It was that insight that really drove that and so we really kind of think when people come the door which bucket we end for. What reasons walls do. We sat i so counseling to coaching. Most of the people in my practice have gone kind of coaching for a while. We may have been lead over to sort of a counseling issue for a while. We might do sort of a mixed bag but ultimately helping people really move up that continuum for is significant chapters of their lies. So that's how we think about it and it really is sort of a toolkit both different types of practice Yeah you started out by saying that. Our worlds are bubbles of become really small and our workplaces the people that we really see and connect with more and more are our colleagues and so i guess that coaching that really focusing on that wellness part is going to be as you mentioned going into the winter. A really critical part of how we thrive so we. We've done the remote work thing we've found ways to work around it. We've got all these different communication tools but it sounds like that next step is gonna be. How do we make wellness a priority. How do we incorporate. Now these human connections. How do we incorporate. How do we make these instructions less transactional..

She has built red maple to be deliberately small and it always will be. It is built on a bottom up management style where the person. Uc's highly empowered to meet your needs. So rachel for my just one q masking given that mental health and wellbeing is a concern for most employees. What should employers be doing in order to prepare for the coming months. Yeah so i mean. Read out the gate. The thing that's probably most important to sort of stop in notice is employers in workplaces. Nowadays cannot see themselves as uninvolved topic anymore. We spend all of our time at work. Most of us have very small bubbles. And you know if it's not the workplaces imperative to address these kinds of big questions of humanity and the experience that we are all living with if it's not the workplaces and who's is it anymore and so yeah. I like to think about like this. And i'm going to start with a little bit of a diagram by gap to do this visibly because one of the disrupters to my field with the pandemic and how. It's sort of shaking. Now we've all had our disruptors the things that have come and shake in our core of our industry one of mine is normally. It would have these conversations with all make.

Our goal is to leave you with the tools you need to drive change in your own life both personally and professionally. What we as a society collectively assigned value to matters in the case of monuments and statues these monikers of History celebrate the past and many are calling into question their purpose to life, especially those of the Confederacy and other historical figures like Christopher Columbus and here in Canada Sir Johnny McDonald. So today's burning que statues and monuments birthday tributes to history or glorification of Oppression. To answer today's question. I'm joined by doctor Michaela Dean. He Michaela. Thanks so much for joining me. Hi, Melissa. Thank you for inviting me. Michaela Dean is an associate professor in the history department at the College of New Jersey where she teaches African American history. She earned her PhD in history from Rutgers University New Brunswick. She is currently writing a book about fugitive slaves from Louisiana and Texas who escaped to Mexico between 1804 and 1865 and I'll also add that McKayla and I have known each other since grad school. So I'm super excited that she's joining me today. So Makayla statues and monuments, are they attribute to history or glorification of Oppression? So the Confederate monuments are not just a glorification of Oppression, but a tribute to white supremacy, most people when they think about secession they think maybe that it's about States wage rates. But if they look at state constitutions from the Confederacy and the vice president of the Confederacy Alexander Stephens Cornerstone address where they actually talked about upholding white supremacy and justifying slavery by legitimating ideas of black inferiority. And these were the main goals for the Confederacy. And also most of these monuments many years of which the United Daughters of the Confederacy fundraise for and dedicated were erected in the late nineteenth century and early Twentieth Century. So long after the Civil War had ended. So during this time when these monuments were coming up there was a significant violence against black people as a backlash against the freedom. They had obtained in 1865 black. During this time, we're becoming more educated. They were purchasing property. They were doing work outside of agricultural labor and other words separating themselves from there and sneak past. And so these monuments assured and assure white people that the racial status quo had not changed even though black people were no longer enslaved. I'm just going to ask you a question here for listeners here in Canada and maybe some of those also in the US that isn't it true that the Confederacy was actually founded as a new country whose main purpose written into its Constitution was the enslavement of black people like that is right. It's a fact and that they started their own country. So they were the Confederate States of America and they wanted to form and break away from the United States and they did they had a president a cabinet everything. And that at the time they were seen as actually treasonous for breaking the union exactly..

"They need to be successful with the I spaced it all sounds like employee-driven call log. Social responsibility in a way. Yeah, and the best social responsibility of times isn't always employee-driven. It's just who manages it who is responsible for moving it off, but you have to listen to what your employees want and need when it comes to social responsibility. Otherwise, you're missing out on some of the major Returns on investment in corporate responsibility, which is not going around right that makes total sense. So anything else that employers should be thinking about is there watching the way that the NBA and other leads are handling this impression weight of activism. Yeah. It actually goes what we're talking about a few seconds ago with corporate responsibility. It's about building a solid team believes that are doing the best jobs in the social responsibility space in the political athlete activism space are leagues that have a solid roster of people who are responsible for pushing. Look forward. So the burners and just on the employee has another job to do they have a solid team of professionals internally to that are responsible for moving this forward. The NBA has one of the most welcome social responsibility teams, you're seeing more leagues like major league baseball Minor League Baseball Union FL having diversity and inclusion internal departments as well. And when you do that, it allows the employer to not just be reactive but also to be proactive which helps them craft the message even more and just have a little more autonomy in a little bit more flexibility when it comes to what to do when employees want to participate in any type of political actions. I think right now we're seeing people that are very reactive but the idea of being proactive. Could you talk maybe just a bit more about that? Yeah, some of the League's that I work with they will actually ask for legislative reports before the legislative session so know what's going to be popping off. Not only so their players know what's going to be popping up and what they might want to invest their time in but they also know what type of ask the leaks are going to get from social justice groups on certain pieces of legislation will say there's legislation that somehow limits youth access to sports social responsibility departments such as the NBA and NFL they want to know that because they're going to be engaged with or use Sports. They have an investment in these Sports and they don't want to get caught off guard when the legislative session weekends. It's much harder or employers that don't have the people responsible for that portion of the work to be proactive and they're usually hit with last-minute requests. They don't have the talking points ready their athletes don't really know how to engage in there not being able to make the most of that moment and be as impactful as I possibly can that's really interesting. I want to recap for our listeners the points that you've made here because it's a really interesting. Frame that you've put on how we can look at athletes as employees. The League's as employers and the way that we can translate the way that these two groups of interacted into the regular place. So I think the first thing that you mentioned that was really critical was working with your employees and that shift that you mentioned from when we really started to see the rise of athlete of activism in Grand 2016, and that if we translate that into the workplace, it's around creating a task force of management senior leaders and employees and creating that Coalition right and not hearing what your employees are hearing what their concerns are addressing them and then you mentioned that it's really critical to give employees the tools that they need to effectively change their Community or engage in the issues that they're passionate about. So you mentioned training or speaker series that engage in topics that employees are interested in and then also you mentioned that hiring outside control. Is to help translate the employees messages and needs to management being that sort of voice that go between there. And then the third point that you mentioned which I think is really interesting as well as is really having that issue solid team of experts whether it's internal or Consultants that are able to be there to respond to incidents but also to be proactive in terms of engaging with employees wage issues that are of concern to them. So I really want to thank you Ashlyn for offering your perspective on athlete activism and the lessons that employers can learn from house. Please like the NBA are responding through to their employees concerns. If you're interested in learning more about the work that Ashland is doing with the inclusion Playbook or if you're involved in sports and I'm looking to start your journey to bring in a more inclusive space in your organization.
