This week, I speak with Daisy Ozim, founder of Resilient Wellness, a nonprofit that builds community-based solutions to address intergenerational trauma.

We talked about:

  • How building resilience as a leader -- especially if you are a woman of color -- means learning not to internalize the negative messages we get when we don’t fit a traditionally white male template of leadership.

  • We also talked about how Daisy has worked to position herself as a thought leader in a sector that often excludes and marginalizes voices like hers.

-- This is the last of 3 episodes focusing on the social justice intersections of public health. --

Lessons from the Lab is an every-other-week email, inspired by my conversations with social impact leaders and innovators on the Dialogue Lab podcast. 

This week's edition of Lessons from the Lab will unpack ways to build an inner resilience that weathers the kind of self-doubt we all face as leaders. Get it here: 

Interview Highlight:

[36:30] I think my ancestors are really strong. I feel protected. I think that there's always been an energy around me that has been able to guide me and lead me different places and keep me out of certain troubles. I think that's what I was able to rely on.
