Power is a Delicate Thing Written by Tawana Bain I struggle to understand how to quantify power. Why some are so hungry for it. Why some abuse it. And why some don’t even realize they have it. I’ve found in life that the quickest way to see what a person is all about is to see what they do with a bit of power when they get it. Does it go to their head? Do they forsake long-held values in pursuit of maintaining it? We often think that power can eclipse insecurity, but really, I [...]

On the Road Together Written by Tawana Bain This year is in full swing, and I hope that 2023 is treating you right, even though, for me, it came barreling in as though I had stolen its best friend. I came into the year battling a virus, technical glitches, and a newly chipped front tooth! I have to admit that I initially took all of it as a bad omen that this might not be my year. But after reflecting, I now see how the virus made me reprioritize my health, the chipped tooth resulted [...]

Let It Go, Sis Written by Tawana Bain | Photo by Dick Arnspiger Is it a cliche to say that a new year should bring a new beginning? Maybe so, but it doesn’t make it any less true. Studies have shown that 91% of new year’s resolutions don’t stick, but if everyone in America made one, that would still be over 301 million that did work. And not just work, but work out, lose weight, save money, quit smoking, and spend more time with family since those are the top resolutions.  And if those statistics [...]

Hold Space for Her Written by Tawana Bain | Photo by Tawana Bain Recently I was presented with the opportunity to support a dear friend who was being recognized for her outstanding leadership and noteworthy accomplishments. As I looked around the stunning event space and at all the beautiful people in attendance, the highlight for me was her, and the overwhelming joy it gave me to see her celebrated and honored for the amazing woman she is.    While only a select few were invited, I was caught off guard by some dismissive energy. Some [...]

The Power of Becoming Ageless Written by Tawana Bain | Photographed by Kylene White The first time I noticed age was a label used to limit women professionally and personally was when I was fresh out of college. I remember someone telling me that it would take me 10 years to do something that I wanted to do simply because I was a recent college grad. Being a new professional in the workforce that was an a-ha moment for me. To have someone determine for me that I couldn’t do something because of my age [...]

A Welcomed Seat at the Table Written by Tawana Bain | Photographed by Kylene White This interest in what the experts call “diversity, equity and inclusion” began for me when I was a small girl. My two sisters and I were raised by a single mother in upstate New York. We initially lived in the projects, were a part of the urban/suburban program and were bused from our inner city neighborhood to a predominantly white school. Though the projects we lived in were viewed as crime infested and unsafe, that neighborhood provided some joyous memories [...]
