Recently I spent a month driving across the United States filming a documentary. During my travels I interviewed over 100 people asking them this question "What Is Freedom?". The outcome is 6 episodes of travel, culture, and social issues that tell a story of just how diverse this country, and the cultures of people who live here, really are. This is the trailer for the documentary and I am the American Nomad.
Culture, Diversity, Identity, & allyship: more than just trendy buzzwords.
The world is increasingly interconnected, multicultural, and multi-generational. And ideals of multiculturalism are present within a country, as well as in-between countries. At its most basic unit, culture is about the individual, whether they reside time zones away or just next door. Add to this, cultures are organic, constantly changing from internal and external pressures. Whether it's an individual navigating the discovery of their unique identity or communities accultrating traditions, culture is the shapeshifting framework that we understand each other and make sense of the world.
By working together, I help create cultural authenticity within an individual's mindset, across team behavior, or embedded in transcreated communications. With a foundation of authentic understanding towards cultural nuances and their expressions across generations, we can cultivate the skills necessary for crafting inclusive messaging that is received as organic instead of tone-deaf, and develop organizational behavior that supports allyship between cultures.
