Tawana Bain & Amelia Frazier Living Sisterhood Out Loud Written by Christine Fellingham & Tawana Bain Anyone who knows me– even just a little bit– knows this to be true: “Sisterhood” is not just a word for me. It’s a way of life. I unapologetically surround myself with strong, supportive women who live authentically, show up consistently and are willing to step up and be not just sounding boards but real allies when life gets challenging. There’s no age, race, sexual persuasion that defines these women. It’s authenticity and chemistry. My sisters are [...]

A True Partner Always Shows Up Written by Tawana Bain I’ve been thinking a lot lately about women supporting women. We all know that in light of the historical struggles and ongoing challenges we face, the concept of women coming through for each other has emerged as a powerful force. It’s authentically what we’re all about, and it never leaves my mind or my spirit. Women have continuously challenged barriers by forming supportive networks and advocating for change by being the change. Historical milestones like the suffrage movement and the rise of feminist activism demonstrated [...]

Escaping the Entitlement Trap Written by Tawana Bain This month, we will explore dealing with the entitled. Whether it’s present with family, friends, or is woven silently with business associates, I can’t help but to be perplexed at how naturally this trait exists and, as if bearing the weight of processing the behavior of the entitled is not enough, how are we to cope with the realization when those we least expect to harbor the trait show us who they are? Do we stand by and agonize without uttering a word? Or do we challenge [...]

‘Who Are You Uninterrupted?’ Written by Tawana Bain The other day, I saw a video that stopped me in my tracks and really made me think. It was from entrepreneur, author, public speaker, and podcast host Felecia Hatcher, who, I’m happy to say, was a guest speaker at the Black Girl Magic brunch during Derby Diversity Week in May. Someone had asked her, “Who are you uninterrupted?” Her response was, “I’ve worked for some of the biggest companies in the world, and I’ve never heard that question. But moreover, I could not answer it when [...]

The Power in the Ask Written by Tawana Bain It’s almost cliche to say, but it’s true and bears repeating: Nobody builds anything great all alone. Watching the Most Admired Woman Awards, I saw woman after woman take their time to give thanks to the people who helped them get to where they are. And not just for the nominations and votes that ultimately won these awards for them, but for everything. Work, life, and the places they intersect, we always need support to do the big work. Getting that kind of assistance often starts [...]
