Kiran Bassi joins Lolita Walker in this episode to talk vulnerability in the workplace, shame, ethnic and corporate culture, owning your story and everything in between.  What if you found the courage to tell your manager that you were uncomfortable in a particular workplace situations and their first question was, What did you do?

Others of us have been here and wonder what we could have done differently.  In this episode,  Kiran is telling her story, the pain, shame, conflicts within her ethnic culture, the irony of the corporate culture, owning her truth and using it to help others share their stories.

S2E26 - Dear Meghan Markle: A Thank You to the Women Everywhere Standing in Their Power (with Lolita E. Walker)

"Dear Meghan" is not only the title of my powerful poem that I share at minute 15.59, but it is also a celebration of one of the Power Women that I am calling out as a woman making history as we speak, specifically for walking into fear with courage by her side.  How often do we struggle to do that? Lemmie ask you this. How often do you truly pause and "see" those around you for who they are and what they are bringing to the table? How often do you acknowledge the hurt that you and others may be holding on to? How often do we gift folks the flowers they deserve in this moment? This episode is a celebration and thank you to the women everywhere who are making history and standing in all of their power. Listen in and grab a few things to shift differently. In this episode,  you'll grab a bit of COACHING, where I gift you 5 considerations to climb out of the B.O.X.E.S. that we are oftentimes place ourselves within, particularly as women, either by choice or by societal norms of expectations that threaten to bound us to the complacency of moments past.  Whether Power Women like Cori Bush, Gitanjili Rao, Stacy Abrams, Kamala Harris or YOUSELF, here is a reminder that you are greatness where you stand in this very moment. If you know a power woman to send this episode to for motivation, inspiration, affirmation and renewed action, please do not hesitate.  You leave with the affirmation that you are making history today so make it count.   The Episode Rundown Welcome (minute 0.14) Affirmation from lolitawalker.com/shop (minute 0.42) is "I am the history that is currently being made."
