Sometimes You Need to Be a Sidekick, Not a Hero

Posted by Deanna Singh | Oct 22, 2020 3:00:00 AM

Today we have empathy warrior Corey Ponder with us. He has over 10 years of professional experience as a policy analyst in the public and private sectors and is a huge believer in the power of human connection and how that can drive impact. In our conversation, we really dig into the exploration of the idea that we all have some level of privilege, and how we can use that to leverage the voices of those around us to uplift them. He also shares the two lenses through which he approaches DEI work, and how to address the idea that we all have to be experts in order to do work in this space. I truly enjoyed this conversation, and I know you will too.

Topics in this episode

  • Emotional intelligence
  • The responsibility we have to say something and do something about the events that are happening around us
  • Getting comfortable with discomfort
  • The desire to belong
  • Centering the people we are trying to serve
  • The hero/sidekick analogy
