This episode is a bit of a departure from our typical conversations about career transition, but we’re going to weave a thread for you to follow and bring you back to it.
So, let me ask you a question: what would you do if you felt left out and left behind—like a misfit?
My guest felt those things so powerfully that she became radically inclusive, and found herself always seeking common ground.
Nisha Anand is a boundary-buster, common ground creator, and national leader for social and racial justice. Her TED Talk, The Radical Act of Choosing Common Ground, was viewed over one million times in the run-up to the divisive 2020 election.
Nisha is known today as a leader in cultivating unlikely and unconventional partnerships to create change. She now pushes change-makers to dream bigger, design more inclusive movements, and experiment at scale. As Dream Corps’ CEO, Nisha guides a team of storytellers, organizers, and policy experts working at the intersections of criminal justice reform, green economics, and tech equity to create a better future for all.
I want to bring Nisha’s vision to you because we can all use some personal and professional encouragement on dreaming bigger, being more inclusive, and finding common ground.
