As a marine biologist, Colin Howe sees diversity as an indicator of health: the more diverse an ecosystem, the more likely it is to thrive.
But while scientists work hard to preserve diversity in the wild, they often fail to achieve it in the workplace.
Colin is one of just a handful of Black biologists in the United States. On this episode, we talk with him about pursuing his passion in a predominantly white field. And we discuss what the oceans can teach us about the benefits of diversity.
When KC Cheng decided to hike the Camino de Santiago, she imagined it as a kind of therapy. She wanted to feel young and adventurous again, in charge of her own life.
Like so many other thru-hikers, she saw a long-distance trek as an opportunity for an emotional reset.
But what does a solo adventure really do to a person? Does “getting away from it all” change us in a fundamental way?
On this episode, KC shares the story of a surprising realization she made as a result of her pilgrimage.
