The Loss of Cultural Identity and Neurological Dysregulation

Pre-COVID, I was invited to speak at a conference in Flagstaff, Arizona. During lunch the organizers brought dancers from the Apache tribe to perform. What we witnessed was so powerful and moving, that it prompted me to inquire about the spiritual significance of the songs and dance. They explained to me that after going to war, the warriors returned to their land and were gathered together to perform that particular dance and song. As a tribal African woman, it all made perfect sense. As...

Creating the World We All Want to Work in Is Going to Take All of Us (thriveglobal.com)

Studiostockart/ Getty Images Workplace well-being is having its moment. I think that’s safe to say, even though, yes, I’m saying it as a Chief Well-Being Officer.

Never before have both employees and leaders been more in alignment on the value and necessity of well-being, both in their organizations and in their lives.

We've both taken pay cuts — but we've also saved money on childcare. When we had our first child, my husband and I needed to figure out how to balance childcare and work. We both wanted to spend time with our son but didn't want to stop working or pay for expensive childcare. The UK has some of the highest childcare costs in the world, and the lack...

Why Prince William Needs to Do More Than Express His 'Sorrow' Over the Slave Trade (people.com)

A 17-year-old created a free app that makes Disney+ films more accessible for deaf children (upworthy.com)

Subtitles and closed captions make it possible for deaf people to enjoy films and television shows—but what about little kids who can't read yet, or whose reading isn't fast enough to keep up with the captions? How does a deaf child fully appreciate a children's movie if they can't understand what any of the characters are saying and can't read the captions?
