balanced black girl
Balanced Black Girl Podcast is focused on wellness and experiences that empower women of color. This episode was an open, honest conversation about the importance of community, and how we can build more authentic connections and relationships.
We’re not used to talking about race. In fact, we’re socialized to avoid talking about it. Maybe we’ll have a factual discussion about civil rights, black history, or the true origin of Thanksgiving. But when it comes to our personal experiences, beliefs, biases, and fears, we steer clear. Just like religion and politics, race isn’t dinner party talk.
That is unless you’re at one of Michaela Ayers’ dinner parties.

The Champion Awards are driven by professional women of all backgrounds and origins that live in the Pacific Northwest. An unforgettable gala that invites thousands of allies to nominate, vote for, award and celebrate the people that propel us forward. In today's polarized world of us vs. them, entrenchment and finger pointing, we believe it is more important than ever to recognize the companies, people and organizations who demonstrate behaviors we want to see more of. We want to shine the spotlight on women's allies; to celebrate those who have done right by us; to say thanks where thanks are due.
