Jon Senior's FunkQuest

FunkQuest - Season 2 -Quarter Final 2 - Bryan Falchuk v Dr. Kimya Dennis​You will find out that both Kimya and Bryan are experts in their respective fields and this Second Quarter Final episode is full of insightful ​ and thought proving ideas.Question 1 was; 'Where does power come from?' Bryan felt that we all have power within ourselves - and we need to really find out what really matters to us personally so that we can fight against the power​s which hold us back.​Kimya answered her first question about building an ark - she would literally and figuratively build arks (arcs) to connect people around the world so to join together ​to beat systemic attitudes.​Question 2 - and Kimya and Bryan both took this question ​; 'How do you waste time?' and felt the question problematic because this sort of time allows you space to recover and recuperate so you can then continue to help others.Bryan chose the bobsleigh icon on the board for question 3 - answering about the best thing he got for Free. Having felt worthless for many years, he helped himsel​f transform into who he is now ​without having to go on a costly course.Kimya, spoke about her latest dream for her third question, feeling that we generally dreeam about the things we have talked about during the day.Kimya answered the 'fruit waff​le'​ next. Her last road trip was a six hour drive to check up on her house. It took so long because she didn't want to use the highway. She felt that ​seeing scenery was he​althier mentally.Bryan had to ​ confess he had cheated in school when young​ but more importantly had not cheated on his diet although he was allowed a 'cheat day'. "How much do you really value yourself if you are willing to ​cheat?"Final Question for Bryan told us his dad had seemed old when he ​was child, but even now, ​in his seventies h​is dad was very a​ctive​ so not that old really. He knew of older people but his wifes grandma was 92.Ki​mya ended the game by choosing th​e Pyramid. Mythical creatures were not really her type of thing. ​ However the Knowledge, we had gained as people, through the centuries - the mythical ​stories and religious ​histories show just how we can label and ​harm people.

Diversity 365 with Dr. Kimya Dennis - Part 2 (Leading In Color - S1, Ep7)

Leading in Color with Sarah Morgan

Dr. Kimya N. Dennis is the guest for this Leading in Color episode. Dr. Dennis is an educator, researcher, consultant, and community advocate specializing in mental health, suicide and suicidal self-harm, law enforcement, criminal justice system, sexual health and freedom, and reproductive health and freedom. This captures contributing demographic and cultural factors, demographic and cultural identities, and legality and illegality. The general population is reached with emphasis on underserved and underrepresented individuals, communities, and cultures. This is Part 2 of 2 featuring the conclusion of the episode Dr. Dennis. Be sure to listen to both parts to gain full insight into her advice and perspectives. Dr. Dennis advocates for “Diversity 365,” which means looking at diversity from every angle, every day -- not just when negative issues arise or during required annual trainings. Here are the takeaways from Dr. Dennis in Episode 7:  Focus on consciousness and cultural awareness over correctness. This means errors will be made in what we say and do -- but a sincere apology will be given and we will move forward. Sometimes, apologies will not lead to forgiveness or reconciliation right away or ever. This is OK.  Look at your organization's policies and procedures to determine if they are causing harm and negative impact on marginalized groups. For example, family leave needs to expand to include modern definitions and structures. Survey your employees to determine their true needs and structure programming around this. Assess annually for progress.  Ignore ignorance but address harm. Instead of labeling people and their opinions as racist. Focus on their actions and the impact it has on others.  During the show, we discussed "infantilization of work". This article was from the Ravishly blog and here is the LINK.  Also, Dr. Dennis's event about Colorism is coming up in June.

Diversity 365 with Dr. Kimya Dennis (Leading In Color - S1, Ep6)

Leading in Color with Sarah Morgan

Dr. Kimya N. Dennis is the guest for this Leading in Color episode. Dr. Dennis is an educator, researcher, consultant, and community advocate specializing in mental health, suicide and suicidal self-harm, law enforcement, criminal justice system, sexual health and freedom, and reproductive health and freedom. This captures contributing demographic and cultural factors, demographic and cultural identities, and legality and illegality. The general population is reached with emphasis on underserved and underrepresented individuals, communities, and cultures. This is Part 1 of 2 featuring Dr. Dennis. Episode 7 will feature the conclusion of the interview. Be sure to listen to both parts to gain full insight into her advice and perspectives. Dr. Dennis advocates for “Diversity 365,” which means looking at diversity from every angle, every day -- not just when negative issues arise or during required annual trainings. The primary takeaways from Part 1 are: Change begins within. Before you begin working with others, start by working with yourself. Understand your own biases and privileges, and challenge yourself to overcome them and use your power to help others without expectation of reward or accolades. Be both knowledgeable and teachable. Know when to speak and when to be quiet. Many people only want to talk about diversity in a philosophical or theoretical way. This cannot lead to lasting change or inclusion. Do not waste too much time or effort working with these individuals to change their minds. Instead, focus your work with those who are willing to engage in productive, dynamic dialogue and work on policy change. Challenge falsehoods. Do not allow tokenism, false color-blindness, or assumptions about inclusion to persist in spaces you occupy. Speak up with confidence and authority against works which do not solve real problems or spread untrue information. Dr. Dennis mentions 3 bodies of work during the interview which you may want to read more about: WEB DuBois’s “Double Consciousness” Mark Granovetter’s “The Strength of Weak Ties Theory” Robert Merton’s “Typology of Prejudice & Discrimination” Learn more about Dr. Dennis on her website, www.kimyandennis.com.
