2050 TrailBlazers Season 2: practicing Dynamic Allyship
In this episode, we’re bringing back Katie Augsburger and Andrew Greenia to discuss how to put empathy first in professional inclusion conversations, how to address equity within your organization, and the best way to accept critical love as we all work to be better and more inclusive of others in our career and in life.
Lazetta Rainey Braxton, CFP®, and Kathleen Burns Kingsbury have a beautiful conversation in this episode on how to have honest conversations, make space for one another personally and professionally, and how to start conversations that make you uncomfortable - because, even if they’re uncomfortable, they’re always necessary if we want to make progress.
Both Thompson, CFP®, and David Rae, CFP®, AIF™, are working to start conversations around LGBTQ financial concerns in the financial planning profession. In this episode, they’re diving in to how all planners can better serve the LGBTQ niche, support their fellow LGBTQ advisors, and approach conversations about LGBTQ inclusivity as an ally.
How do you spend your privilege?
It’s a tough question to answer - and in this episode, Sonya Dreizler and Arlene Moss tackle it. As two white women, Sonya and Arlene have dedicated themselves to supporting diversity and inclusion conversations in the financial planning profession and beyond.
As the CEO and Publisher of Investment News, Suzanne Siracuse knew that highlighting inclusive initiatives was her responsibility as one of the leading publishers in the financial services industry. The publication has consistently used their platform to start conversations around D&I, and Suzanne offers advice to other media outlets who want to do the same.
As we continue to build the dialogue around diversity, equity, and inclusion, it was very timely to be able to sit down with Mark Berg, CFP®, and Mark Johannessen, CFP®, AIF®, who participated in the FPA 2018 Annual Conference panel, Winning the Fight for the Female Talent: How Firms Can Gain an Edge.”
In continuing our conversation around allyship, I’m sitting down with Tom Nally from TD Ameritrade and Ed Gjertsen II, representing FPA, this week. We’re discussing how to build inclusivity into the foundation of your business’s structure, and what actionable steps you can take to get started when you’re just not sure where to begin.
When we started releasing episodes for the first season of 2050 TrailBlazers, we were overwhelmed with how many people with privileged identities reached out to us asking about how they could start being an ally, or how they could become a better ally. So many conversations started with, “I’m here, I’m listening, and I want to help.” That’s why, this season, we’re taking some time to focus on allyship.
Rianka is back with Season 2 of the 2050 TrailBlazers Podcast! We’re all so excited to be here for another fantastic season, and we have some incredible content in store for you. But before we dive into a full season of actionable content that’s sparking conversation, we need to go back and recap the information we covered in Season 1.
