The Kathryn Zox Show

Kathryn interviews Author Dr. Stephen Morris. Placing a loved one into an assisted living facility can be an incredibly trying and emotional experience. It’s an enormous decision that does not come lightly. Naturally, families are concerned with the quality of care that the seniors in their lives will be receiving, and are reluctant to trust institutional senior care. According to Dr. Stephen Morris, an academic emergency medicine and public health specialist, small-scale senior care facilities are becoming viable options for families, and providing a much needed peace of mind. Small-scale senior care facilities are operated and supervised by a team of nurses, health care directors, and resident managers who ensure coordination of care, adequate staffing, finance management, compliance, marketing, and collaboration with outside health organizations and providers. “It’s exactly the type of intimate care that our elders deserve,” says Dr. Morris who’s been featured in the NY Times, Associated Press, NPR and 60 Minutes.Kathryn also interviews Author Deanna Singh JD, MBA. Author of American Girl’s first ever advice book on race and inclusion, Deanna Singh aims to help girls understand race, racism, and anti-racism, and why practicing inclusion can have an important impact on our world. Whether girls have seen protests in the news and wondered what they're about, or they've seen someone treated unfairly because of the color of her skin -- or even been treated unfairly because of the color of theirs -- they may have questions about racism. She offers quizzes, tips, and ideas that will help girls learn the best ways to take action to challenge racism in herself and her community. Singh, an accomplished author, educator, business leader, and champion for marginalized communities is internationally recognized for her work in leadership, diversity, equity, and inclusion. While tackling complex social challenges, Singh gives audiences the tools and courage to imagine, activate, and impact the world as agents of change.

133: Race & Inclusion with American Girl w/ Deanna Singh

Parenting Forward

Our girls deserve to know about this world that they live in. They deserve to know about the things that impact them. This is why I love all that American Girl is doing right now to reach girls in a way that is signifying to them.  Today’s guest, Deanna Singh, partnered with American Girl on a project with this same purpose. This summer, she came out with a book in collaboration with them called A Smart Girl’s Guide to Race and Inclusion. Deanna is also a speaker who does some incredible work around diversity, equity, and inclusion. She hosts virtual summits where she trains individuals and organizations on how to be an ally. In this episode, Deanna and I discuss this book that she collaborated on with American Girl and many of the diversity and inclusion lessons within it. She also shares some great practical methods for talking to kids about these topics from her extensive experience. Tune in to learn more and start bringing race and inclusion into your family discussions. Show Highlights: Why Deanna decided to write a book for middle grades and partnered with American Girl. Some of her background as a biracial woman. Why it’s so important to have conversations with our kids about race. How being a kid and growing up is hard work. The differences and similarities between talking about race and inclusion with middle schoolers and adults. How scaffolding and storytelling help when having these kinds of conversations with our kids. The “inner radio” analogy Deanna uses to teach kids about their internal voice. Why privilege isn’t a bad thing but must be flipped for good.  How parents can be allies.

#99 Uplifting Impact with Deanna Singh

The Diverse Minds Podcast

Welcome to the 99th episode of the award-winning Diverse Minds podcast, and I don't know about you, but often, I find in life that there are people who reach out to us in an unexpected way. We've never heard of them previously, and they might be on the other side of the world. They've not been in our sphere of consciousness, but we build a true connection with them. And I think this has been more common and is happening more often in a virtual world with social media to connect us. This is what happened when Deanna Singh, founder of Flying Elephant enterprise, reached out to me and invited me to be a guest on her podcast. We spoke and as they say the rest was history.
