Thank you for tuning in and welcome to the SHE SPEAKS Podcast by The Great Canadian Woman™. My name is Sarah Swain and I am the founder of The Great Canadian Woman™, an empowered multi-media organization and inclusive community that focuses on producing 100% Canadian content to put the spotlight on the powerful and inspiring Womxn right here in Canada. We host events, we publish books, we produce a collaborative blog, we run a book club that tackles tough issues facing Canadians and you can find out about all of these things and more by visiting www.thegreatcanadianwoman.ca

On The SHE SPEAKS Podcast by The Great Canadian Woman, you can expect to learn something new, from someone new with each new episode. Producing 3 fresh episodes per week every Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday, you’ll listen to Womxn cover anything and everything from business to the environment to social justice to parenting to travel and just about everything in between. There is something here for everyone. The purpose here is for you to connect to, learn from and grow alongside other incredible Canadian Womxn - who have something to say. 

We as The Great Canadian Woman brand and platform no longer identify as being a like-minded community of Womxn because truthfully, we believe that by surrounding ourselves with people who think the same way as us only perpetuates the palpable divisiveness across our country, and globally at that. Instead, we are an open-minded community and we hope that by being here, you feel inspired to learn something new that challenges your existing beliefs. We hope that you connect with someone new that maybe you wouldn’t have otherwise connected with or had the opportunity to connect with. And we hope that by being here, it sparks growth in your own personal or professional journey. 

Most of our contributors are the everyday Womxn. Not celebrities. Not big influencers. Not famous. Womxn. I won’t even say JUST Womxn, because being a Womxn is enough. These are Womxn with something to say, and that is enough. More than enough.

Gone  are the days She remains humble and keep her gifts, her wisdom and her power to herself. 

Here, she takes the mic. 

Here, she owns her power. 

Here, She SPEAKS.

Megan Hamilton is a public speaking coach for women with speaking anxiety. She uses her classical theatre training and 25+ years of performance to build a step by step public speaking system that not only allows you to deliver incredible speeches, but also provides you with a framework to have difficult conversations, build your confidence and increase your visibility.

In this episode, Megan shares:

  1. Actual skills and tools for you to use when you need to have a difficult conversation.
  2. Stories & examples of real life situations and how the people involved navigated racism when they saw it.
  3. A simple reminder that the first time somebody speaks up about something is always the most uncomfortable.  

Megan’s episode is very powerful and educational.  She starts by stating that white people need to listen to Black people, specifically Black womxn.  It is one thing for white people to start to do the work and learn about being anti-racist through a book like White Fragility, written by a white womxn, but it is completely different to learn from the lived experiences & stories written by Black people.  Megan lists some fantastic resources, & books for the listeners to grab to help them do the work, along with sharing the tools that will help you navigate those difficult conversations, you know the ones, they generally happen at Thanksgiving dinner with that racist Aunt or Uncle.
