Y'all, I'm so excited to introduce one of my new favorite people to you today, Her name is Trudi Lebrón and she's also half Puerto Rican - which is one of our connection points, though you'll see throughout the conversation there are many more than that.
Trudi's big truth was the idea that everyone has their own path, which sparked a short conversation around all the paths within our paths throughout life.
From there we got into the difference between things that are culturally insensitive and blatantly harmful and she gave context and examples for a lot of terms we hear - fragility, impact, intent, self centering, woke, microaggressions, ally, and accomplice to name most of them. She gave us some practical applications of equity and what theory looks like vs practice in your life and business.
She also dropped one of my favorite metaphors of all time - you'll have to listen to get the full thing, but it's about money mindset and unconscious bias.
This is one of those "listen more than once" type of episodes. Enjoy and share!
