Episode Description

Kathryn interviews Author CJ Gross. Within the past five years, diversity and inclusion, as well as unconscious bias, have been the main drivers of organizational training, politics and community engagement. But diversity is much more than a buzzword; it propels innovation and problem solving, and leads to higher performing teams. CJ Gross offers research-based solutions for employees seeking professional growth and for business leaders seeking new ways to engage their teams. Gross provides strategies to help class-migrants — whether college students, recent graduates or overlooked employees — climb the career lattice and transform themselves from undervalued employees into respected leaders. He also offers insights to help organizations understand the impact of diversity on a business’s productivity, turnover and revenue. Gross is a TEDx Speaker who has been featured in the Washington Post, the Washington Informer Newspaper, and other outlets.Kathryn also interviews Author Lisa L. Lewis MS. Teens today are facing a perfect storm of mental-health challenges, increased academic pressures, and tech overload, all set against the backdrop of chronic sleep-deprivation. While we all know sleep is essential for teens’ well-being, it is far too easy to downplay the risks, or understand what’s at stake when they are regularly skipping sleep in order to get everything done. Advocate, educator, and journalist, Lisa L. Lewis, who helped spark the first law in the nation requiring healthy school start times, addresses these questions and more. Lewis offers insights into how we can make changes at home and in our schools– and also build a common understanding of why teen sleep matters. Lewis has written for The Washington Post, The NY Times, The Atlantic, TIME, the Los Angeles Times, Slate, and Your Teen, among others.
