Allied Leadership with Hannah Wright

I first met Hannah Wright in the Story Skills Workshop, and again in the Podcasting Workshop. I was inspired by the generous way she showed up in both workshops and by her determined advocacy. She’s led a life of service and recently found her voice to intentionally step into a leadership role as an ally for LBGTQ+ community.

In this episode, we explore how Hannah stepped into the role of an accidental ally, and her discovery that “everyone can make the world better from their own place in the world.” We discuss the value of emotional labor and the wisdom of knowing when to shut up and when to speak up. How does a cis-gendered, heteronormative, straight woman, honor the people she is representing as an ally? Listen to Hannah share her gift of showing what the journey looks like – even when it’s bumpy.
