Showing up for DEI in the U.S. and Abroad with Kay Fabella

Pause On The Play

DEI consultants are not a monolith. Erica and her guest, Kay Fabella, a DEI and remote team consultant based in Spain, discuss how personal experience, geographical location, and cultural context influence individual approaches to the work, while highlighting some of the key differences in anti-racism efforts abroad versus those in the US.   In this discussion: The value of embracing a multi-hyphenate identity Wholeheartedly engaging in the DEI journey The importance of contextually appropriate DEI educational materials Problems inherent to applying a US-centric DEI strategy to global conversations when it comes to language, context, and culturally readiness Creating safe spaces for people to do the work Reconsidering your normal for a stronger foundation Showing up as a DEI practitioner - the personal is professional Questions to consider before engaging a DEI professional for your business Connect with Kay Fabella Website Podcast Whitepaper As a Forbes-featured DEI Consultant & Remote Team Strategist, Kay Fabella has worked with companies like the IMF, Philips, Red Hat, and PepsiCo, to improve inclusive communication between diverse team members, to retain top talent and reduce turnover, and to build a culture of belonging to prepare companies for the future of work. A Filipina American in Spain since 2010, Kay draws from her lived experiences as a “multihyphenate” woman of color, a daughter of immigrants, and an immigrant herself to build bridges for belonging. She believes that more inclusive workplace cultures start with psychological safety to share non-linear stories — to embed empathy, expand worldviews, and increase employee engagement and innovation.  While she finalizes her first book on DEI, you can listen to her industry insights and interviews on her 5-star podcast: Inclusion in Progress. *** Check out our full show notes for more at https://www.pauseontheplay.com/potp/ep96.

Seven Figure Consultant with Jessica Fearnley

What are you struggling with right now? What do you see holding back people around you? Your answer will be different to my answer, and our answers will not be the same as the next person’s. So many women consultants start their businesses because they want to make a change. They want to change the way things are done in their industry. They might need to change the way they work to fit around other aspects of their lives such as illness or caring for someone else. Our role as businesswomen and as experts in our industries gives us the opportunity to lead inclusion. We can design the businesses we want to see more of. This week my guest is Kay Fabella, a DEI consultant and remote teams specialist who builds diversity, equity and inclusion solutions for companies with distributed teams. She works with organisations around the world from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies. Kay and I talked about the power of inclusion, creating opportunities and the part women consultants can play as allies and leaders. We discussed: Why equity is a critical part of the equation Recognising that people have different starting points in life Different experiences of situations How to think about socio-economic factors which could impact members of your team in different ways Being better allies to each other Dismantling systems to create more inclusivity The gender pay gap for women of colour and how women consultants can close this Making your network more inclusive Leaning in to discomfort and learning through it Resources mentioned in this episode Kay Fabella’s Inclusion In Progress podcast.
