The Amy Ahlers Show
#405: The Amy Ahlers Show is especially for powerful women that are ready to STOP being so hard on themselves so they can end the never enough cycle and RISE into the leader they were born to be. Show notes for today’s episode can be found at www.AmyAhlersShow.com/405 Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, marches and protests happening around the world after the tragic deaths of more unarmed black men, George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery, and another unarmed black woman, Breonna Taylor, I wanted to bring back two shows from the Race Relations Series I did in 2016 for the Mama Truth Show (the original version of my podcast). For the black people in my community: I see and acknowledge the heartache, trauma, and devastation you're experiencing right now (and have likely experienced your whole life). I want you to know how much I deeply care about you and how much I believe Black Lives Matter. I also want you to know my commitment to continue imperfectly educating myself, as a white privileged woman, in anti-racism work so I can unlearn the ways of white supremacy that I know I benefit from. You and your voice matter so much to me. You belong here and I'm deeply honored you're here. For the white people in my community: Please join me in doing the work that we need to do to become the best allies possible. I'm learning alongside you. We must continue to put our white fragility aside and show up day after day. Will you join me in taking actions, big and small, to help dismantle the systems of racism and oppression? For today’s show, the fantastic Desiree Adaway joins us to help us all learn more about how to celebrate diversity. Desiree is a consultant, trainer, coach, and speaker building resilient, equitable, and inclusive organizations. She holds a vision for people’s lives, workplaces, and communities until they can hold it for themselves. She has over 25 years of experience creating, leading, and managing international, multicultural teams through major organizational changes in over 40 countries. Listen in to learn: -how to become a better ally and invite the wholeness of people into your life -what White Supremacy is and how it’s different than racism -how to approach difficult conversations about race and embrace the tension -compelling stories about her own journey as a mom and a black woman.

Today I am delighted to have my coach and friend Desiree Adaway on the show. Desiree helped me see, integrate, and then SPEAK this truth in every single and all gigs—that race, class, age, gender, ethnicity, gender expression, and other identities will always come into play as you do this work, and that I, Tanya, will not always be the best person to provide you support you need to do this work of shifting our mindset around leadership. AND I am committed to helping you reduce barriers and using my privilege to connect you to networks, resources, and teachers that CAN support you on this journey. So in this episode, Desiree and I talk about Desiree’s understanding of liberation and identities and how these two work together when it comes to navigating our world—and informing our Impostor Complex. We outline the frameworks of liberatory consciousnesses: awareness, analysis, action, and accountability. We talk about why we are so scared of getting it wrong and how this determines our every move, getting over the sense that if we do something wrong then we are wrong at our core. So a lot of that comes down to understanding the characteristics of white supremacy and focusing on brave spaces instead of safe spaces. Then we offer different ways of showing up with this deeper understanding to do the work. Find full show notes for this episode here.
