Their mission is simple:
1. We aim to transform the cultural meaning of princesses and princes into positive role models who take action to protect living beings and the planet for future generations.
2. We seek to promote greater racial, cultural, and gender inclusivity. We expand the cultural representation of beauty by including different size princesses and princes, as well as those with disabilities.
3. To produce high quality educational tools that are entertaining. Our goal is to utlilize multimedia platforms to educate readers and users about current global issues and how we can all be part of the solution.
4. Our stories promote greater awareness of the environment and aim to advance children’s knowledge in STEM subjects (sciences, technology, engineering, mathematics).
5. Our stories combine teaching ethical principals with the practical imperatives of helping parents, teachers, and children meet Common Core State Standards.

As event season gets ready to kick off for the Pagan community there are any number of minor controversies that might crop up. In the passed there have been issues regarding gender in sacred space, certain notable presenters and their pasts, and other issues - both minor and major. This year seems to be no exception to that. With Covenant of the Goddess facing member resignations and turmoil over their public statement regarding racial issues and a first time out festival in direct conflict with a well established festival - in both timing and geographic location - there seems to be now shortage of controversies to address this year.
RevKess and KaliSara will talk about some of those current issues and how they may play out in the near future. From Peter Dybing's strong stand on racial inclusivity in practice and language in regards to CoG to the Gathering of Pagan Souls festival being in direct conflict with Heartland Spirit Festival at the end of May. Along the way they may also address some of the past issues that have come in the Pagan world and how they were addressed and handled by those who could make a difference. They will also talk about other upcoming events in the Pagan world, including ConVocation and PantheaCon.

"I'm from New Zealand and am taking a year (or more) off work. I'm currently living at Dharmaloca as caretaker for the next 3 months- then who knows! I met Jaya in India in 2006 at Budhgaya and have since sat a number of Open Dharma retreats. I love the inclusivity and grounded spaciousness of Open Dharma teachings.
This talk is not what i originally planned! In it I speak about the ordinary- the delicious and often extraordinary ordinariness of being an embodied humanoid, living our Dharma. At least I think that's what I speak about". (18 min)

The tech industry prides itself on being a meritocracy. Yet recent employee demographics from Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, and others shows that staff at these companies are mostly male and mostly white.
At the same time, we know more diverse communities and workplaces create better products. So why do we see so few women, people of color, and LGBTQ people at our events and on the about pages of our websites? Even more curiously, why do 60% of women leave the tech industry within 10 years? Why are fewer women choosing to pursue computer science and related degrees than ever before? Why have stories of active discouragement, dismissal, harassment, or worse become regular news?

After show chats are almost as great as during the show chats & often that is where new show ideas come to life. Today after our 'Living ON Purpose' show, Elaine & Penn & I were having a conversation about the 'inclusivity' concept of I Am the Western Woman. Elaine mentioned that she had received some feedback in that regard. The feedback came from a wonderful & compassionate woman who feels that stating that 'we are all Western women', meaning EVERYONE, is an unrealistic concept & that women in Westernized culture have a duty to speak out for women in other cultures who we perceive as 'oppressed' in some way or ways. We spoke at some length about this & decided that we needed to do a show on this topic. Approximately 1 hour later, I was walking down a main city street where I live & was approached by a beautiful young woman named Nusaiba. Nusaiba was wearing a hijab (head covering) & chabor (full long sleeve & to the ground robelike garment). She was part of a group of individuals who were peacefully raising awareness about the plight of the citizens of Syria. After a very short conversation with her, I knew she had to be on the show to discuss what the Dalai Lama's quote 'The Western Woman will save the world' means to her.
Shortly thereafter, I was at a festival where a wonderful organization called unlearn (www.unlearn.com) had a display. A synchronistic conversation with a young man, Ahmed, from Lebanon, brought me right back to the topic discussed earlier, this time, from a man's perspective. Needless to say, Ahmed will also be on the show.
THIS, to me, is what the I Am the Western Woman movement is all about, inclusivity, diversity, open-ness, singularity & LOVE....TUNE IN!!
