As Trump attacks democracy, both parties vow orderly election.

"Donald Trump's refusal to commit to a peaceful transfer of power. If he loses drew swift blowback yesterday from both parties in Congress and lawmakers turns to unprecedented steps to ensure he can't ignore the vote of the people. Amid the uproar trump said, he's not sure the election will be honest. Congressional leaders including Senate majority, leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi rejected trump's assertion that he'll see what happens before agreeing to any election outcome. Many. Other lawmakers including from trump's own Republican party vows to make sure voters wishes are followed ahead of inauguration day in January. And some Democrats what taking action including formerly asking trump's defense secretary, homeland, security adviser, and Attorney General to declare they'll support the November third results whoever wins. Ost as he was departing the White House for a campaign rally, if the election is only legitimate if he is the winner trump said. See. Trump's attacks on the upcoming vote almost without modern precedent in the US demonstrates rhetoric in line with autocratic dictatorships hitting as partisan tensions, rage, and more Americans than ever a planning to vote by mail because of the corona. Virus pandemic. Even. Without signs of illegality results could be delayed because of the pandemic leaving the nation exposed to groups or foreign countries seeking to provoke discord McConnell. GOP Senate leader said in a tweet the winner of the November election will be inaugurated on January twentieth. He said that will be an orderly transition just as there has been every four years since seventeen, ninety two. Nancy Pelosi said calm down Mr President you are in the United States of America is a democracy she said reminding trump, this is not North Korea Russia or other countries with strong leaders that he admires trump is fanning the uncertainty. As he floats theories, the election may be rigged. If he loses echoing warnings, he made ahead of the two thousand, sixteen voting even though past elections have not shown substantial evidence of fraud from Malin voting trump doesn't appear to have a strategy though if he wins. It is unclear if trump's lack of intellect is to blame or a genuine desire to sow doubt and create chaos around the election.

But with talks with the EU all but stoled over fisheries and state aid a statement from his Northern Ireland Minister Brandon Lewis. The new bill would break international law in a very specific and limited way may only worsen matters. The EU. Has warned Britain that if it reneges on the divorce deal, there would be no agreement.

Britain and the a you say, they have until October to agree a free trade deal which would ease the worries of some companies who fear disruption at the borders and of supply chains at a time when many struggling with the corona virus crisis. In a statement, the government hailed its internal market bill as a way of empowering Britain an ending the reign of unelected EU Bondi's. The bill is intended to allow all companies to be able to trade unhindered in Britain's four nations to transfer powers to Britain allowing it to replace some of the EU spending programs and set up a new body to monitor internal trade.

Brexit: What happens now

"At the beginning of two, thousand and twenty it was widely assumed the years news agenda in the UK would be dominated by the rancorous torturous divisive and tedious subject of Brexit. Those were the days happily for those of us who had grown weirdly nostalgic for it. What one thing another brexit is. Self. Evidently back in the headlines as the UK's final departure looms on December thirty first British ministers. Now, apparently plan to try rewriting the EU withdrawal agreement, they agreed last year you may recall this being presented at the time as the ticket to the sunlit our plans and so forth. Well, joining me with more on. This is the political journalist and author Terry Stephanie. Terry, as far as it's possible to boil it down. What is the big idea here? It's Boiling down I suppose the big idea is that a Britain the UK is. Having, more talks with the e this week. At the same time, there's what's called the UK Internal Market Bill, which is going to go before parliament this week. Now that parliament is back and it's due to be published, and we're told that this bill might according to the first reports of this in the Financial Times, eliminate the legal force of parts of the withdrawal agreement I-. Overriding the treaty that has been signed and ratified by everybody a regarding what's going to happen to do with Northern Ireland and its future relationship, and this is being greeted with a fair deal of horror because it seems to suggest that before any deal is donald before no deal happens Britain may actually go back on something that everybody has already signed an agreed to. The difficulty here a difficulty here as I understand it is that you want sowing the treaty you can't really on sign it can you? Know you can't. The reaction to this again, this is this is something that might happen. I suppose. One of the questions is whether this is all part of the UK government talking its own book ahead of future, Negotiations Boris. Johnson saying that we must have definitely have an agreement by the fifteenth of October and being innocent blustering and talking about prospering mightily in the future. But yeah. An international treaty is international law and the European Commission, is being quite calmly so far in a on the surface at least saying. I trust that Britain will continue to abide by this and we trust that they will implement the withdrawal agreement. Michelle Bonnier saying that everything that has been signed must be respected but yes, international law. That was signed into law by this parliament after the election certainly still stands what you're alluding to. There is a statement made in the last hour. So by US Levonne, delay in the president of the EU Commission very thinly veiled faint subtext of irritation. Do you get the sense that the UK's government might be overestimating the degree to which the EU is still terrifically interested in any of this? I think you know they the usual has to be interested in it. I think. It's possibly a there ever estimating the degree to which the EU doesn't see these tactics coming because there has been quite a lot of talk over the last week about the likelihood of their being a no deal agreement and. British negotiators really saying you know we'll be we'll be fine with the no deal. Don't worry about this. You know we we can. We'll. We'll go ahead and do this and I think there's an element of Brussels sitting back and looking at it and saying, okay, you go. Ahead you go. Do what you want to do. It's. It's sort of slightly reminds me of apparent with a recalcitrant trial and we trust the to do the right thing and you know we understand that you really want to do the right thing. Don't you and just letting them in a slightly letting them walking towards towards. Well on the subject of the UK doing the right thing eventually over we are, of course, fast running out of eventually to recap those dates December thirty. First, the UK's transition period is over October. Fifteenth is when Boris Johnson says a deal needs to be done by if you just think about this, not so much as an analyst. e you affairs but just thinking about it as a British political journalist doesn't not strike you that the likelihood is if you judge the career in character of Boris Johnson that he will at the last minute take whatever's the easiest way out and claim a great triumph because that's pretty much what he's always done. Yes I. Mean Boris Johnson has always been as we know particularly even his decisions on which side to support in the referendum he's looked at both the options had a back pocket version of both things, and then done something at the last minute I mean he? No, he's he's a journalist by training. This is how we work. He come come up to do things at the last minute. The difficulty is there are lots of things that can't be done at the last minute not least signing a huge international agreement, not least getting UK borders ready for the for the transition, getting all the customs officials that you need Also the economic impact of this. There have been statements from retailers recently saying that you do realize that if there's no deal agreement, we will have tariffs that will effectively increase the price of food and You know. We don't know what state the economy is going to be in coming out of Cova, but we can imagine that it's not going to be very good and one of the questions is despite Boris Johnson's talk about Britain prospering mightily, how much more of a shock can the UK economy standard? It's those kind of questions not least as well. The relationship with Northern Ireland with the rest of Ireland the relationship with Scotland the keep coming back to bite people and people keep warning about it but on the other hand, the government sort. Of trying to appeal to its own backbenchers I suppose, and also saying look we can. We'll be able to do more in terms of government investment state aid without the telling us what to do, and we will be able to make our own rules as they keep saying and government ministers today suggesting that that could be a price worth paying just on the subject they're finally of the actual practical preparations. This is what strikes me. It'd be interested in in your view on this might actually end up governing what the government ends up deciding because. This was raised last week, and we talked about this on the program by associations of holy is in freight companies just basically making the point that the account be no deal brexit because the infrastructure and the personnel and all the other stuff necessary to deal with it simply does not exist and sure as heck isn't going to be conjured into being in the next two and a half months. No? I mean I was in Kent last week where people were talking about this, there's a site that local people had expected was going to be used for an Amazon Amazon warehouse that they now think is likely to be used for a customs checkpost and there's there's not really anything there the state and yes, you know people saying that training the customs officials let alone the the software, the hardware whatever else you need in place is going to take more time than we have. But you know things have been cobbled together. If you look at how we respond to the coronavirus crisis in the last few months, and perhaps there's an expectation that these kinds of things can somehow be becomes it up but it's not going to be easy and come January. We may see the downside of that terrorist. Asked me. Thanks as

This theory looks at how ideas of race and racism permeate legal and cultural norms, including the notion of white privilege is NPR's Franco Ordonez reports. The president calls the training on American propaganda Office of Management and Budget director Russell Voight sent a memo announcing the change Friday to the heads of all executive departments and agencies. He said he was acting at the direction of the president and punctuated his memo with a tweet, saying the days of taxpayer funded indoctrination trainings that sow division and racism are over. The memo comes amid civil on racial unrest in several major cities across the nation.

"Hey welcome to the. podcast politics, race, and culture from a multi layered POC perspective I'm money. and. Joining us from Overland Ohio professor. Jeanette. Is Cultural anthropologist author and professor of Comparative American Studies at Oberlin College Hey Gino welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having me and thank you for being in Ohio. We need you and joining us from New Jersey. Also, very important state is Pam Gumbo spot mashes a veteran of foreign policy organizer and a senior political strategist. At the Working Families Party welcome. Pam. Thank you so much for inviting me. All right. So we are looking at a sad story, the story of Vanessa Gin. But we're going to put it into a larger context. Right? We hope everybody knows the story of. She's twenty year old specialist in the US Army who went missing from Fort Hood army base in Killeen Texas, which is about. Fifty minutes away from Austin. Right at the end of April. When many of us at least here in the east coast were in the throes of like pandemic insanity more than two months. Later, there was an extensive manhunt. Finally, there was a grassroots campaign led by let the women service members and veterans, and there was national each and the family was finally told that their daughters remains had been found with the backdrop of a global pandemic and you know this real. For Racial Justice long-held accusations have reemerged into the national spotlight around the military sexual violence in the military. Violence and how you protect yourself from other people who have guns and you're living on a base in the military and so many other intertwined injustices in systems that ultimately were responsible for says, disappearance and death. So Pam you've been actively involved in the campaign for justice for Vanessa is well is speaking out on these issues in fact, for years Gina You as an academic have written extensively about the military's relationships specifically with Latino and Latina communities. So gene, we're going to start with you talk about the significance of this case and what it's putting into the national spotlight from your perspective. Well, as you say, this is such a tragic set of circumstances that brings us here together but I think it's also really kind of an important opportunity to honor Vanessa's life and. Hannity, incredible activism, an extraordinary advocacy of her sisters, her younger sister Lupe and her other sister and her mother to bring this to national attention and I. Think. For me one of the things that. So extraordinary about this is that for some people, this is new that this is something that is surprising to people because I think for many people like Pam and others who are have been in the military know that issues of sexual violence and sexual harassment in the military have a long history. And Violence Against Latinos and the way that in social media and used media have framed this as femicide. We also know that this has a long history in our communities alongside history and our communities. So for me, this is a real opportunity to draw attention to things that we don't want to pay attention to enter really hold our elected officials accountable to addressing these longstanding problems that have is incredible impact. On Latina's and women's lives and on their families and communities that they have sworn to protect and that they have enlisted in the military to try to protect, and so I see this as a tragedy that is also a real opportunity. Pam Do you see it the same way tragedy? That's an opportunity from your perspective as somebody who served in the military what stands out about the importance of this case I. Will tell you. I. Organized Around Pretty Heavy topic sprayed ending wars, militarism violence holding the department, of Defense, accountable and when I heard about the disappearance, right because we can't forget that she was disappeared choose disappeared for months and I learned about it through Spanish language media and social media networks not through the English. Media networks and the sowed and devastating part is that Vanessa is one of thousands on thousands. And I think the social media explosion that happened with Vanessa that Hashtag shows you how prevalent this is what is different however, I do think that we are in a reckoning moment in this country where everyday people are no longer satisfied with hypocrisies. Yeah and what greater of hypocrisy than the daughter of an immigrant joining the military to give her life for what rate what caught my ear when I heard. Gloria. Vanessa. Ganz immigrant mother on the Spanish language news. She was very clear about what was happening. She said me e my daughter told me that she was being sexually harassed by a superior right and nothing was done. There was little to no urgency. has also done what often doesn't happen, which is she has not treated the military the Department of Defense generals she has not treated them with blind allegiance or ability. She has said I don't care that I'm a working class, Latina you're going to respect me and you're going to give me answers which is different right and I think that blind allegiance we'll get into it but blind allegiance to the.

What does it mean to actually support your people?

Hacking Your Leadership

03:17 min | Last month

What does it mean to actually support your people?

"I was having a conversation recently with an employee who doesn't report directly to me and they expressed frustration at a lack of perceived support from their leader. It wasn't a very specific complaint. So I decided to dig a little and ask what he meant when he said he felt unsupported. He replied with only a slightly less ambiguous answer and said the last dozen or so times he'd asked his directly leader for something the response I got was either the League couldn't provide the tool or the resource being requested or they said they'd try to make it happen but the never returned to follow up I kept digging. What did you ask them to do? The employees able to name three things much fewer than a dozen times initially claimed and even the three things he able to list had very understandable potential hurdles from a leadership perspective. But. None of this matters because and this is important support and a feeling of support are defined by the person asking for it not the person providing it. This means that if you have employees who feel unsupported by definition, they are unsupported because the disengagement and the drop in productivity in an employee who just thinks they're unsupported is identical to the disengagement and the drop in productivity in an employee who actually is unsupported. Which means your job as leader is to make them feel supported. And I want to be clear I. didn't say your job as a leader is to support them. I said your job is to make them feel supported. Sometimes this means you actually have to support them but other times it just requires a little education. Give employees who ask for or expect impossible things. Those employees are typically just missing information that would lead them to different conclusions if they were as informed as you are. Don't assume they don't need to know even if they actually don't need to know and don't make them feel bad for not knowing instead the additional information and allow them to reform their conclusions on their own. Employees asking for things they actually deserve that you're genuinely unable to provide. I get really clear with yourself on why you aren't able to provide them. Is it a matter of prioritization resources available to you a judgment call and how things should run whatever it is it's important. You're clear on it in your own mind because you need to articulate to the employee who's asking don't make it up. And don't think for a minute they won't have follow up questions so you need be able to answer those two. What full of questions would you have if your leader told you they couldn't or wouldn't provide a resource you're asking for those are the questions you'll be asked. Yet. Employs asking for support and you truly believe you can provide it. But later find out it's going to be more difficult or even impossible. Don't ignore it and hope it goes away the employee who asked will one hundred percent remember asking and they'll just clearly remember your lack of follow up. It's okay to think you can do something based on what you know and then find out new information that changes things be straight with the person who asked tell them why you thought you could make it happen and what changed your mind You surprised the amount of grace. She'll get from employees received that level of transparency and partnership. Sometimes you'll have to actually deliver even if you're being honest and doing your best, you can't fail to deliver on the request twenty out of Twenty Times. So pick your battles wisely use your network in your resources to make sure you can say, yes to some of these ones because that'll buy you the leeway you need for. The Times impossible. Making sure employees feel supported is crucial to getting their best work people perform for leaders are companies who don't support them. Instead lack of that feeling sows the seeds of discontent and allows employees to tell themselves stories about how unsupported they are. oftentimes, this isn't even the case.

"To this end, we always pray for you that are God may make you worthy of his calling and may fulfill every resolve for good and every work of face. By his power. Second Thesselonians one eleven. When Paul says that God fulfills are good resolves. By his power through face. He calls are acts works of face. He means. That we defeat sin. And we do righteousness. By. Face Daddy is. Being satisfied with all that God promises to be for us in Christ in the next five minutes. Five months. Five decades. And into eternity. Here are three examples of how this might look in your life. One. If you set your heart to give sacrificial engine. The power of God to fulfil this resolve. We'll come to you as you trust. His future grace in the promise. My God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus Philippians Four, nine, thousand, nine, hundred. And the, promise. Whoever sows bountifully. Will also reap bountifully. Second Corinthians nine six and the promise God is able to make all grace abound. Do you so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times you may abound in every good work. Second Corinthians. Nine Eight Two If you set your heart to renounce pornography. The power of God to fulfill this resolve will come to you as you trust. His future grace in the promise. Blessed. Are The pure in heart for they shall see God Matthew Five Eight. It is better that you lose one of your members. Than that your whole body be thrown into Hell Matthew five nine much better wonderfully better all satisfying -ly. Better. Three, and if you set your heart to speak out for Christ when the opportunity comes. The power of God to fulfil this resolved will come to you as you trust his future grace in the promise do not be anxious how you are to speak or what you ought to say for what you are to say we'll be given you in that our. Matthew. Ten Nineteen May God increase. Our daily face. In the precious promises of God. Promises. Of. His inexhaustible blood bought Christ exalting future grace.

Breaking the Esports Audio Sponsorship Mold w/ 100 Thieves VP of Esports and JBL's Global Director of Marketing Comms

"While the podcast. So we're going to be breaking down this deal for both perspectives. It see how the cookie crumbles really what it comes down to how these deals habit. You see all the headlights you see the products being worn by the players Orga dive into really the steps that lead up to the creation of a brand deal like this one. So starting out from the early stages which side reach out I was JBL. Making the step over to one hundred thieves or one hundred thieves reaching out to jbl. Do you guys remember? I'm pretty sure we were the ones that initiated the contact. Through an agency that we're working with at the time to help us to grab craft our approach to to exports into gaming in general. So I i. think we were the first ones to to to. To Extend the hand. Absolutely, Jacob, do you remember when those conversations started and the energy was like a as you reached out? This is a space that's really filled with a lot of partners jbl. Here's a legacy audio brad reaching out to you remember what those early conversations through like. Yeah. A excitement is always Key in figuring out these partnerships and really looking at all brandon and who reposition ourselves with. We need partnerships that we that we truly get behind an ice either about So with JBL obviously premium quality products something we feel like we represented in displays of east bolts. So while I, can't remember the. The. Stop Time. All who initiates I remember you know sort of the. The sense of feeling in the room once we came over the initial hurdle of introductions and you know that was one of excitement. Absolutely. I can only imagine the seems like a trend that's happened this year of these really log running brands enter eastward seeing that with Herman. Miller. For example, in the complexity partnership, you've got a brand that well out dates video games, much less e sports getting into the space promising. Hey, we've got this great product that's been used by all these other industries, and now we want to be involved in East Sports Michael From your perspective. Why was J B L A natural fit for East? Sports. So I I think to to answer that it was. We were looking at this more as a great fit for gaming and where we think gaming is is going in the future if you take a look at how the graphics within the game have evolved over the last fifteen or twenty years like. It has grown in leaps and bounds, and so the realism that's now. Prevalent in President Gains. Really helps to create the super immersive experience for Gamers and we felt like sound was a piece that was that was lagging in that equation. And so our whole idea was we want the gamers actually be able to hear the game in the same way that they see it. and. When we identified that as a need in space, that's when we knew it was time for us to actually enter. We didn't want to be just another brand that said, hey, gaming. It looks cool. Let's do that. We wanted to make sure that we're actually bringing something new table and and actually you know solving a need that we thought consumers gaming space might have. And that was really the whole impetus for US designed to get into gaming. Absolutely in every game knows how important audio is you mentioned how graphics approving well, sow does it prove it as well especially in the battle royale? Sowed is so important you've three hundred, sixty degree view. There's always people either above below at identified where they are and reacting to it is becoming an increasingly important part of being successful in eastport. Jacob you of a background is professional player. Could you talk about how audio matters especially at the highest levels of water video game? Yeah. Absolutely like you mentioned the. But I think The. The shooter Genre in general audio is one of the most primary importance of of of performance ride. So when we first started this conversation, it aligned sort of when we. Just picked up our counter strike team as well. both counterstrike fortnight now valor and call of duty call everything right sound. So very pivotal to to play performance. So as one of the the first conversations that I remember having was making sure that whoever we partnered with on the audio category, it would be a product that we were excited to use them that all of our. Players get behind and use on a daily basis because of how how big of an importance it has on the products on performance site So it was very reassuring. I remember Maddie from from team coming into the conversation saying listen it's got it's going to be jpl I'm really excited about this what are your concerns here because mostly on the performance side without teams and so Speaking on behalf of all of our players and going into the competitions it's important that we have You know state of the OPS. Hardware. When when we playing whether that's mountain. audio. Absolutely, you're only as good as your equipment. Well, that's a lie could be better than your equipment plenty of types, but at the highest level, those little those little differences really make a big deal. Michael

"Hello my loves Sarah would say each morning. Walking out to ten her fields she would check the soil to make sure it was not to wet and not too dry. She would inspect each stem and bulb for signs of fungus or bulb rot. She was a terror to snails and slugs and aphids and other pests who tried to eat her beauties and chased them away anytime any time. They came near her neighboring farmers more often than not found her on her hands and knees bottom in the air and face in the dirt adding just just a little bone meal or Mulch or trimming off dead leaves. Good Morning Sarah. They'd say the tulips are looking especially well today. Sarah would answer not bothering to look up from her plans. I don't suppose you'd sell some of your tulip bulbs this year would you. They'd ask and they'd always ask. I've told you know. Never Sarah would snap and that would be the end of that until a few weeks later when another another neighbor would try. They were always trying to get her bulbs. They grew tulips as well but they were never quite as bright as Sarah's never seem to have the same same playful tilt of stem and turn of leaves that made people gasp with delight. The other farmers would share bulbs back and forth if one had a particularly lovely shade of pink they trade it with a neighbor for a sunshiny yellow or a deep blushing red. Of course they were competing with each other for sales but not really there were always plenty of buyers for their tulips. And even though they're flowers weren't quite as perfect as Sarah's they never had any trouble getting by that's why they were all happy to share and get along all except for Sarah. Of course things went along this way until one year it was especially windy cindy the breezes build through the bulbs making them Bob and bobble brightly. The winds gentle finger swirled around the stems and sent the pollen soaring for weeks. The air was tinged yellow and it gathered dust on farmers and homes and flowers alike. Now in case you don't know. Pollen is very important for flowers. The only way tulips can make new seeds is if the pollen from the top falls down into to the bottom of the bulb usually this happens with pollen from the flower itself or maybe from flowers planted nearby when it's windy though. All sorts sorts of things can happen things. Sarah had no use for. What is this. She cried out one morning when her new crop of Tulips was beginning getting to flower my beauties my babies. They were still. They're still healthy as ever but there was a small problem along the edges of her fields where they neared her neighbors some of her. Tulips didn't shine quite as bright. They didn't have playful tilt of stem turn of leaves. They were still wonderful beautiful magnificent flowers just not quite as perfect. Oh this won't do. There's won't do at all. Sarah looked into some of her neighbors fields. Some of her neighbors. Tulips were brighter for a white hot doc minute. Sarah thought they had managed to steal some of her seeds but then she realized the truth. It was the wind. The breezy weeks had spread spread. Her neighbors pollen into her tulips and vice versa. They hadn't been able to get her bulbs but they've still gotten some of her flowers. Looks like a little cross pollination A neighbor called well. We'll all be better for it. Nothing like some new pollen to make a flower healthy and strong. If I write of course you'd say that snapped Sarah. You got my beauties and I got your your my what said the neighbor waiting for the insult. Your your dim bulbs all right. Don't blame me. You can't stop the wind that what you think. Sarah shouted and then stalked away back to her fields. She looked at her bobbing beauties. She she looked at the swirling pollen and started to shout. No no no you stay where you are she started chasing the pollen around but there was too much and it was too small to grab. She tried her old butterfly net which was soon caked yellow but didn't even put a dent in the great blowing clouds over the next week. Her efforts got more elaborate and more desperate. She complained to her neighbors but they couldn't help anymore than she could. She paid to put up fences but the clouds blew over and around. She hung sign. That said no pollen allowed the the gentle breezes ignored them like they ignore everything else in the end. Sarah was tired and sweaty and had nothing to show for all all her efforts but a knows full of pollen. A sweat soaked shirt and a lighter purse. She went home miserable. My perfect into lips she sobbed. I wanted them to be bright. I want them to stand tall. But how can I fight against the wind. She put on a pot of tea and sat by her fire thinking she couldn't fight the wind. She saw that now no matter what she did. Her flowers were going to mix with those of her neighbors. The bobbing beauties didn't understand farms or property lines. They didn't obey signs and fences.

"I truly don't understand that because i'm like well like if you're doing the work and you're doing it well you should probably tell other people also you can't be what you can't see so part of starting the bragg threads for for me it was like when i was like i want to celebrate other people's successes and also i i can't celebrate what i don't know about so there is something really about just reclaiming the narrative of your own career you know i'm like if your your job we should know about it and there's nothing gross about talking about it has that brags section influenced how you think about or talk about your own achievements it has because it has challenged me a lot i think that i am somebody who has not have a traditional career path it's hard to feel part of a team sometimes and i think that when you're sharing your accomplishments with your team there's a clear framework for how you can do that you can frame it on the work and you you know it's part of teamwork and for me i'm like i i work at learn and i work in a silo and and sometimes i do feel that creeping in where i'm like oh i never like a friend challenge me about this recently she's like you never tell me when you win awards or when you do things or whatever you even you even sort of blushed when i talked about the forbes thirty thirty introduced embarrassing hey listen here's actually here's my feeling about the forbes thirty thirty thank you for abs magazine for that award but i think that especially in tech we fetish is young people so much you know i'm like sure being the best at the this thing at thirty is fine but we're literally all idiots unity mean like we like what is the thirty year old going to teach you about the future of anything absolutely nothing at all and in doing the sting where we like fetish is young people we alienate a lot of older people i think especially with women where there's an age that you become really invisible and i suspect that that's like around forty and there is something about having more wisdom and having more work under your belt that will make you not feel like a fraud because young people constantly talk about imposter syndrome it's like so in vogue for people in tech especially women attacked to talk about it and i actually think that imposter syndrome and small doses is good i'm like yeah you don't know any something certainly keeps people from being intolerable you know i'm like one if you've imposter syndrome it's probably because you care about what you're doing and it's also because you're trying not to be a fraud i'm like young people are frauds like we're all fraudulent just you put everything on social media you're just bragging about these accomplishments that are actually not concrete you know i'm like talk to me when you've had a failure talk to me when you've run a business into the ground talk to me when you even have a resume that is five year you know like that is a thing so all of this to say you know like no shade to forbes i think they do a really important thing highlighting people but i would be so much better served with like who are the women executives over fifty who are people who have built a lifetime of making something and i think that we don't talk about longevity and career you know anything about something that you like you talk about constantly and i i loved your ninety nine you talk last year because i was like the first time i just i had heard so much about like like your own path and i was like wow imagine starting a new thing in your thirties like i know the way that we talk about like a young people's accomplish you know i'm like i don't want to peak when i'm twenty eight like that's my hair you that's not the accomplishment i want to be known for i hope i don't peak until i'm in mice late seventies i've always said that deep down inside i feel sixty three like i like even as an ear old i was sixty three's the perfect number to me this this is the as i wanna be and i hope that i make it and i hope that it's like a glorious time that's there's no question to sitting here listening to you.

"Of a life circumstances that you have that if you make it to a certain age you just got a different philosophy on life you know it's like i'm like i come from a part of the world where if you make it to five you're probably going to have a longer life than most people my mom died when she was forty nine even though we lived in belgium and for our country like she still statistic like women getting a have a life expectancy average of about fifty and i i have seen some hard things like hard things have happened to me but i also think life is worth living you know and and we're very aware of that so i don't i don't wanna feed into some bullshit like african people are strong people narratives because i think a lot of times that's how it gets misconstrued or an even in america like people think that black women specifically are just stronger and that's not true it's like we have we all have the same emotional reserves that everybody else has but our lives can be more challenging and if you're choosing to live than your tap into that let's talk about some of your career successes in twenty eleven you cofounded tech lady mafia with erie meyer formerly of the us digital service at the white house and now with code for america the impetus was an article that you booth read about the dearth of women in technology which you both knew was false since you each worked in tech how did that lead you to launching tech lady mafia yeah you know it's like especially in twenty eleven twenty time we would get a lot of these articles and the headline was always the same only five women knew how to use a calculator seven knowhow to computer and you know and the media just feeling very kind of proud about the fact that they're pointing out disparities and you know the statistics are absolutely true they are true they're they're not enough women in stem is not representative of the population we have the it's not even representative of the number of women who are studying stem that's the other thing i'm like where everybody talks about this leaky pipeline i'm like where are these women but the thing is like for area and i i was like this is not true in our lives like first of all we know every woman in this town who computers of one thing and also it is just not helpful to point out disparities and also be complicit and creating them you know and so this is a famous media does a lot where they're like well like there are no women in stem and then you look at the science section of most magazines or newspapers and they're only quoting men and so the impetus really was saying like okay like we don't have any mentors we don't trust the system but we trust each other and we know we and we all feel a little lonely in our silos and i'm a big believer in this concept of horizontal mentorship and horizontal loyalty and that i did not come up with police to google and read more about it but the thing that is true is that.

"Like i was like ut is fine but austin itself was amazing that like kept me that kept me happy i made a lot of friends who didn't go to ut and or like didn't go to college or had nontraditional backgrounds and that made me happy to my dad was very disappointed that i went to ut and not to to yell which was his first choice and for a long time was you know it was just not happy about it at all he was like you're not listening to me you're not gonna make anything of your life whatever because you know like status and like brand like especially to immigrant parents that stuff matters a lot because those are also the only path that they understand and so he was like well area growth ring your whole life away going to the school by the mexican border and i was like sir like you know he sounded like the black donald trump at the time to me it was like this is this is not cool but it all worked out east at he'd government specifically political science middle eastern studies yeah two different majors and economics economics government middle eastern studies and economics because i thought like my hero growing up was christiane amanpour well you know she reports a lot from the middle east how do i get to be christian poor yes i did all those things and look at me now i don't use any one of them you wanna be that point did you want to be a newscast i i don't think i wanted to be a journalist but i definitely i cared a lot about the middle east i thought i wanted to work with refugees i was like i wanna work in a refugee camp i wanna help solve the middle east peace whatever and and also i think it's because my dad was a diplomat i was like government it's like a thing that we can have in common and economics is the thing that we can have in common and it was fine but i think it wasn't until my junior year in college i was like oh i'm not like liberal arts is great but i'm not learning a skill here know i'm like i know how to read books and i know how to write papers but i made all these friends that were design school and the art school and business school and we're engineers and i was like you can leave college with like skills and and the recession was looming so it just i was like something bad is going to happen will you graduated in two thousand seven when the global recession began you went and lived with family in belgium until you've got an american visa and seeking a government job you move to washington dc where you didn't know anyone and had new job prospects you applied for dozens and dozens of john's of so many jobs and finally got a job at toy store to pay your rent what was that like for you it was fine for me but it's so fascinating to live in town like dc and not have a job that people think is important or valid i'm really happy that i went through that phase of my life because the one job they did get offered while i was applying to all these things is this internship in john kerry's office this woman called me and she was like are you are able to start tomorrow and like through our conversation and became very clear that she needed like kind of diversity person in she was like urine like she couldn't like say like are you black or you from somewhere else but all of our questions are leading to that but i was like i have no shame about this and i was like yeah sure and it was to be like to be oppressed intern so it was like literally being press clips and i remember being like okay how much does this job pay and she was like this is an intern on its engine on capitol hill it pays nothing and i was like okay i can't take it because i support myself and i remember her just being very shocked talking to me like what is wrong with this twenty two year old like everybody wants this job and.

"Cosby's which is hilarious now knowing everything you know about bill cosby but it was one of those like oh america seems like a place where black people got to do magical things like maybe this is what i wanted do or i was like where maybe i can live in france but i just i knew that i didn't want to be home and also like home life was a little tough and i always independence streak like i just i was like i'm fourteen and i don't wanna live at home anymore but i want to not live at home to go to school not to run away and so i really wanted to go to the school in france and my mom was kind of on board and i think that at the eleventh hour she was like wait the girl is pulling a scam on me that it's too far away can't supervise her and she was like listen i'm all on board for you going to a school that you want to grow too but the south of france is a little too far for me so that was this american school in just that was four hours away it was very good schools run by missionaries my parents were really on board i i i was like i'm like it's kind of a religious school my mom was like christian people run good schools it's fine i had to take a test i had to do like an english immersion program that summer because i didn't i went to french school my whole life my entire life was in french even though we lived in nigeria it's kind of shameful late and speak very good english i understand you watch doria and friends religiously repeated every word so you could get the exit just right when i moved to american everybody didn't speak like chandler bang it was a huge disappointment to me like i like i was sold fake bills you came to the us to go to the university of texas at austin horn what made you decide to ut austin i i played to twenty four schools i was such a nerd i applied to i'm pretty sure it's twenty four schools definitely over twenty schools got into every single one of them except for one and i apply to all these schools because i love having choices but then i'm paralyzed by the choices so i made my dad right like a check for every single school and i was like i'm going to pick up a last minute but i need you to write all these checks now and he was like you better not cash all of this at the same time and and i remember it being april one or whatever the deadline was that you were supposed to send things and just not house like i don't know where i wanna go this is terrible and so i convinced my parents to let me take a year off and i was like oh this seems like a chill european thing that you could do they were like not weird at all by at and my family had just recently moved to belgium and because i've been boarding school i like i saw that my siblings we're getting a lot closer than me it's definitely odd man out and so i was like okay this can work two months into being at home i was like oh there's a reason i left here when i was fourteen i cannot handle this so i then went back to the drawing board and i was like oh what's the school that will let me come in the spring and ut was top of that list but i also wanted that movie college experience he said you wanted a fantasy movie college i wanted to go to the big school i was like i wanna be my graduating class was twenty nine people i always been in these tiny environments like classes with thirteen people in ten people it was like what is the biggest place i can go to mb number like everything that people don't want from a big school that's what i want what was it like when you got to texas it's texas but it's austin i am really happy that texas was my was my first america home because i think that it's like weird and expansive like me texas's texas is weird it's not the south it's not it's just i like i love it but austin specifically was great i was like oh i got to go to good school.

"To you and she didn't even describe it she's like if they start telling awful stories about like thing that hurt or whatever she's like don't tell them it's never happened to you you know and at the time i didn't understand and i'm like oh you were shaking the table like a like this and when your grandmothers i read where we're trying to set you up in an arranged marriage the fact that you weren't circumcised prevented that from being able to happen i think it was mostly the thing that stands out so much for me in that time period is that i'm like one of the youngest people in my family now at this point and i'm definitely the oldest unmarried and so i get the pressure all the time i you know sometimes it's funny and then other times it's not it's like there's a site of a family that it's actually not also from at all but like when it came to light that was not a circumcised that was like a point of concern and it was like well let's fix this if we fix this maybe you'll find a man and it was like i don't think that's what's preventing me like being in a relationship of thank you fight it was a way to where a choice that my parents made a long time ago like marrying for love living overseas now collides with like the tradition of my family is very conservative and my family my family tree we have it goes back to like seven century west africa and i was like it's very muslim it's like very conservative and i was like i was like if my parents hadn't been this like weirder radha people i you know that's pressurized would have fallen to e went to boarding school in joss said it's the only place in west africa we can grow strawberries and raises and i understand you had to convince your parents to send you there what made you want to go there so badly one i really wanted to go to boarding school i was like i'm in pursuit of better educational opportunities and there's this boarding school in france i really wanted to go to and i also know how my parents are was like i have to make it seem like it's their idea so you know so my frame to them was listen here's the life i want for myself and i was definitely in the eighth grade and i was like here's what i wanna do in life and what was that and a lot of that for me was i was like i just want a good job and i want to go to a good school i truly there were no like brand names attached i wish i want a different life and here kind of a couple of ways that i can do that and i was like i think i wanna live in america because it looks like they're black people that do cool things i'm pretty sure it seemed like three episodes of the.
