Podcast Episode 7: Diversity, Inclusion & Pronouns with Kristy Ware
This episode with my dear friend Kristy Ware (they/them) was so so good. We talk about Kristy's career transition as they've moved from being exclusively a health and wellbeing coach into their role as a Workplace Inclusion teacher and coach over the past 5 years (since we met!). It's been a lifetime of learning and stepping in for Kristy and I'm so grateful we got to share this story on this episode. We also dove pretty heavy into pronouns and what it's like to have options these days.
I got A LOT out of this conversation - one I was, truthfully, a bit nervous to have because I have never really had it before but Kristy made me feel so safe to ask some of these questions and to explore some of these concepts. Go find Kristy, bring them in to teach you and your team, and buy their books!!
