Well, Not Perfect

May 11, 2022

We’re back for another episode of Well, Not Perfect. I’ve been looking forward to sharing this one with you all! 


I had the honor to sit down with Dr. Donna Baptiste, I had the opportunity to get to know Dr Baptiste in 2020 during Simply Bee’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Panel Discussion. Dr. Baptiste is the Department Chair of the Master of Arts Degree in Counseling at the Family Institute at Northwestern University as well as a licensed psychologist. She is an incredible human with a passion for mentoring other professional clinicians, treating families and promoting equity. 


In this episode you will hear me discuss both my personal and professional takeaways that have since then changed the way I parent and lead. 


Like me, I am confident you will walk away feeling inspired! 


Listen in as we dive deep into the hot topic of diversity and inclusion and the importance of raising informed children who appreciate diversity and value inclusion.  We talk about tangible ways that parents can raise a generation who embody these values in their everyday actions.


Donna’s insights provide us all with a powerful reminder that one of the most essential roles in a parent’s life is to bring up children who will create a world more equitable than the one we have now. 


In today’s episode you will learn:

  1. How to raise children to be inclusive members of society;
  2. The relationship between race, identity, and mental health; and finally
  3. Strategies and advice for how to have uncomfortable conversations with your loved ones.


Welcome to another episode of Well, Not Perfect.
