How do we overcome our growing divisiveness in today’s cultural context

There are so many challenges in our world today, whether they be economic, social, political, or otherwise. Additionally, there is a growing divisiveness in our own culture today. So what are we to do with our divisive environment?

My guest on the show believes it starts from within. My guest is Tim Shriver, who has been both CEO and Chairman of the Special Olympics for 25 years.

Tim Shriver, Chairman of Special Olympics, Inc.

He works to promote health, education, and a more unified world through the joy of sports. Tim’s mother Eunice Kennedy Shriver started the Special Olympics in 1968, and he will talk about what prompted her to first start the Special Olympics. He currently leads the International Board of Directors for the Special Olympics and serves together with over 5.6 million Special Olympics athletes in 172 countries. He serves on several well-known boards, has written a NY Times best selling book and produced 4 films.

The Special Olympics has created so many moments that bring people face-to-face with those with disabilities. These moments are not always quantifiable or measurable, but they have certainly changed millions of people’s lives for the better all over the world. In order to overcome this divisiveness in today’s culture, leaders must push for people to keep their hearts open. The ability to lead by example through showing acceptance is a superpower of all great leaders. With our hearts open, we can learn to accept anyone, no matter what their disability. There are beautiful things in all of us that are capable of shining a light of acceptance, and through that light, lead others to open up their hearts too and eventually change the world.

What Does Effective Advocacy Look Like in Today’s Nonprofits, Especially Now?

Advocacy can be somewhat of a mine field in the nonprofit sector. There are many questions about how much an organization can do and what kinds of advocacy it should take part in.

How One Nonprofit Is Helping Women Fight Back Against Sexual Assault

On average, there are 20 victims of physical violence every minute by an intimate partner, which equates to over 10 million women and men in the US. 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have experienced some form of physical violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime. Furthermore, in just one day, physical violence hotlines receive over 20,000 calls. Those stats are mind-boggling and sadly with the recent forced quarantine, stay-at-home orders because of the COVID-19 pandemic, those numbers are actually going up. This is a tragedy that is taking place everyday.

Shannon Henry. Shannon, President and Founder of SASS GO

Rob’s guest today is Shannon Henry. Shannon is the President and Founder of SASS GO, a nonprofit dedicated to providing trauma-informed programming designed to reduce risk, build confidence, and empower women and girls to defend themselves against physical and mental risks to their wellbeing. Unfortunately, Shannon’s life was changed forever when she was sexually assaulted by a high school boyfriend. She knows first-hand that sexual assault can make someone feel ashamed and isolated. However, Shannon has transformed that painful experience into an unshakeable resolve to help other girls and women who have also experienced sexual assault.
