December 11, 2018
Hosted by Karla D. Walker
Racism, sexism, agism, colorism, so many isms. Why are these “isms” still causing problems in our society, our communities, in our businesses? We live In a wonderful global community which leads us to connect with people and experiences different from our own. Our ideas, relationships, children, businesses are richer when we can tap into the uniqueness. Innovation is unleashed when we are able to listen to and try new perspectives. When we do, we may also find that we are more alike than we are different. So why can’t we all just get along? What’s lurking in the shadows ready to rear it’s ugly head? We have the power to affect positive change by embracing our differences. Join me and my guest Marilyn O’Hearne, as we have some real talk about culture and it’s impact on business and our ability to live our best lives. We’ll get a few tips and strategies that you can use today to and discuss her book Breaking Free From Bias. Together we are stronger, From The Inside Out.

Karla D. Walker listens with compassion, without judgement, speaks directly with heart, and helps people work through the simplest to most difficult challenges. She was raised by her great aunts to believe there was nothing she couldn’t do. So, when people told her no, that fueled her spirit to ask, why not and then prove them wrong. That belief allowed her to gain a wide range of experiences that she has drawn on all her life. Coupled with a strong desire to learn and a fearlessness to try something different or new, her preparation afforded her many opportunities. But what kept calling her was a passion to work with people to help them become their best selves. Her common sense, intuition, personal life experiences and internal compass have guided, directed, saved her and put her on this path.
