Jumpstart Your Allyship, Part 4. In the 4th segment on Jumpstart Your Allyship, host Randy Harris shares a conversation with Xolani Kacela, PhD. They discuss Kacela’s ideas for building genuine allyship with BIPOCs and others who differ from us. The exploration touches on thinking and communication skills, and mindsets for building allyship with others. The conversation evaluates some of the inhibiting emotions we may experience, the courage to embrace new ways of thinking, language choices, and more in our commitment to taking those steps.
The program aired on the KTAL-LP program Think Again. Jumpstart Your Allyship, Part 4 is a program you don’t want to miss!
From the host’s webpage:
Host Randy Harris engages interesting guests in exploring “Meta-cognition” – thinking about our thinking. Albert Einstein is quoted as saying “We won’t solve our problems using the same thinking we used to create them.” Based on that perspective, we look beyond “What” we think, and evaluate “How” we think, “Why” we think the way we do, and why it matters.
Randy Harris was born into a military family at Fairchild Air Force Base in Spokane, Washington.
Coming of age in the tumultuous 1960’s & 70’s, and as the eldest of four siblings, he learned early in life about leadership, personal responsibility, and responsibility towards others.
As a student, Randy delighted in the study of history, science, and cultural and social dynamics, communication, and business.
Being naturally curious, these interests led to employment in a broad spectrum of fields. First, going to work at the age of ten as an agricultural worker in the fields, he gained a direct understanding of hard and low-paying work. Later, he worked in media, energy efficiency and conservation, and entrepreneurial creativity.
