Wow. This episode, y’all. Talk about vulnerability and hard conversations... Recently, it was pointed out to me that I have lacked diversity in my guests on Goal Digger, and I was so taken aback... because it was true. And I hadn’t even realized... This moment struck me— was my privilege so strong that I had grown blind to my mission for TRUE community? Made up of all colors, sizes, backgrounds? Before this epiphany, I had already asked my amazing friend, Lauren Taylor, to join us on the show... and I just knew that we had to have an honest conversation on this topic. Lauren is bold, authentic, and allowed for a fully human, incredibly candid conversation on race, inclusion, and diversity in the creative industry. Lauren shared her honest heart (and her incredible brains!) with us in this episode while sharing personal experiences with racial profiling, lack of diversity... and how she keeps making her mark in the world— on her own terms. I don’t know how to summarize this episode except that we WENT THERE— true stories of race, diversity, and inclusion. The biggest takeaway? We can all do better. We NEED to do better.
