Today we discuss releasing old unnecessary beliefs, stuck-ness, and resistance, and creating equal opportunity for all human beings to thrive.
My first guests, Kate Nielson, the American Association of University Women’s top policy advisor and counsel, and Robin Kagan, former Program Co-Chair, Membership Co-Chair, and now Co-President of the Whatcom Branch of AAUW, join me today to discuss embracing diversity, equity, and inclusion and creating equal opportunities, equal rewards, and economic self-sufficiency for girls and women inside and outside of the workforce by removing gender-based barriers and biases that persist in our educational system.
My next guest, James Case, is the author of “Fear Is A Choice: Unravelling the Illusion of Our Separation From Love,” and is the host of the Livecast and podcast, “Adventures in Truth.” He joins me today to discuss how fear works and integrates into our experience, how radically our lives can change when fear is no longer a factor, and how to identify our fear story and be fully present in the now, where all of our true power and greatest joy live.

“I think a lot of people are really intimidated by the notion of being an advocate. And while I understand that, everyone can be and is an advocate. It can be as simple as talking to your friends about the issues that you’re passionate about to spread education, it can be picking up the phone and calling your elected officials, it can be a bake sale to let folks know what’s going on in your community. Having your voice heard and making your mark is the most important thing.” – Kate Nielson
