About the Podcast

A World of Difference
A podcast for those who are different and want to make a difference
After 20 years of working in Asia, and growing up in South America, I’ve spent my life living in several countries around the world, getting to know people of different cultures, speaking different languages, and learning to appreciate different ways of living this human life. This podcast is a celebration of differences, and a space to discuss how in learning about our differences we discover how we all can benefit from simply listening to and learning from each other. Join us on a deep dive into conversations about how our differences can help us all make a world of difference. We discuss diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging as it relates to cultures around the globe, and how we can join together in synergy to make a difference that lasts and is sustainable.
