Opportunities in the BCM Industry to be Stay Relevant!

Join me Feb 3/21 at 1pm EST!

What opportunities are there in the Resilience / Business Continuity Management (BCM) industry that enable professionals to be – and stay – relevant? The answer that that question and many more, are discussed as I talk with the CEO of Crisis Ally, Alexandra Hoffman.

In this episode, Alexandra talks about:

a) continuous learning

b) the willingness to accept and be part of change

c) the role of Diversity and Inclusion

d) soft (Human) skills

e) linking activity to the organization’s purpose (and the overall culture),

f) the differences between resilience and sustainability…or the lack thereof, and so much more.

Alexandra’s passion for the Resilience, Business Continuity Management, and Security industry’s is easily apparent, as she shares many great insights into how industry professionals can shine before, during, and after, an adverse event. Don’t miss it!

Birds of All Feathers: Doing Diversity & Inclusion Right

Join me Feb 10/22 at 1pm EST!

Diversity & Inclusion is good for you, for your community, and good for you organization. It’s the smart thing to do. Ignoring D&I can create many issues and challenges for organizational leaders. Join me as I talk with speaker, author, and award winning Diversity & Inclusion expert, Michael Bach, about his book “Birds of All Feathers: Doing Diversity and Inclusion Right”. Michael and I talk about:

a) Define some key terms associated with D&I, including a term you may not be familiar with – Intersectionality,

b) Is ‘reverse discrimination’ a real thing?.

c) The Social Justice and Creativity & Innovation D&I Models,

d) The development of the D&I Business Case, and all that it entails,

e) Measuring D&I Success, and

f) What gets in the way of D&I. It’s a very interesting talk with Michael, who really shines a different light on the D&I topic, and clears up some common misconceptions about it. He even clears a couple of for me. If you want your organization to be better at its D&I initiative, and understand why it may not be working the way you’d hoped, listen to what Michael has to share. Enjoy!

Robert Meeropol Turned Anger Into Action By Dr. Paula Joyce

Robert Meeropol is an attorney, author, activist, and the younger son of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg. In 1990 Robert founded the Rosenberg Fund for Children and served as its Executive Director until 2013. Robert remains on the RFC’s Board of Directors. His blog, Still Out on a Limb, which concentrates on climate change, human rights and politics is at www.robertmeeropol.com/blog. Robert wrote An Execution in the Family and has been on numerous programs, including 60 Minutes and the HBO documentary, Heir to an Execution. More than 30,000 news stories on the campaign to exonerate Ethel Rosenberg, including news reports by the Associated Press, CNN, all the network news channels and the Washington Post, have run in the U.S. and other countries including Canada, England, Israel and Japan. 45,000 people have signed a petition to exonerate Ethel. To learn more and to add your signature before President Obama leaves office, go to www.rfc.org or click on the link on my radio show page.

Jennifer Meeropol is the Executive Director of the Rosenberg Fund for Children (RFC) and the granddaughter of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg. She became the Executive Director when her father, Robert Meeropol, retired from that position in 2013. The RFC is a public foundation which aids children in the U.S. whose parents have been attacked while struggling to wage peace, preserve civil liberties, safeguard the environment, combat racism, and organize on behalf of workers, political prisoners, the LGBTQ community, and others whose rights are under threat. You can learn more about the RFC’s work and make a tax deductible contribution at www.rfc.org. You can also follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
I was preparing to visit my children and chose my University of Michigan Alumni Magazine for light reading. It was anything but light. Ethel and Julius Rosenberg’s son, Robert Meeropol, had been at school with me and was featured in an article about his campaign to exonerate Ethel. She was innocent and my government knew it. Not only did the U.S. government knowingly kill an innocent woman/mother, they intentionally used her as a pawn to convict Julius. Even as I write these words, I have trouble digesting them. When I told a friend that Robert was going to be on the show, she went numb and couldn’t even talk about it. Those of us who lived through those times or are just hearing about it now, are experiencing a traumatic response. It’s almost too much to absorb. I was able to process this by telling friends, signing the petition asking President Obama to exonerate her and encouraging others to do so. Please join me Thursday to hear Robert’s story. Then sign the petition at rfc.org.
