WORLD KINDNESS DAY SPECIAL: In 5th grade, Marley Dias felt dissatisfied with the books her school had to offer, particularly the lack of diversity in the stories she was reading. “I never saw black girls as the main characters,” says Marley.  At age 10, with the help of her mom, grassroots activist Dr. Janice Dias, Marley turned her frustration into action. In November 2015, #1000BlackGirlBooks was born — a campaign that aims to collect and donate books with black, female protagonists. Due to her relentless attitude and after earning well-deserved media coverage on the biggest platforms, including the Ellen Show, Marley far exceeded her initial goal.Apart from promoting diversity in children’s literature, Marley has reached milestones beyond her years. She earned the title editor for a section on online magazine ELLE.com called Marley Mag, and wrote her own book ‘Marley Dias Gets It Done: And So Can You!”Learn more about #1000BlackGirlBooks: grassrootscommunityfoundation.org/1000-black-girl-books-resource-guideFollow Marley Dias: @iammarleydias (instagram.com/iammarleydias)Purchase our 1st MERCH featuring our ‘Society of Kind Humans’ shirt: https://sincerelyhueman.com/store——Special thanks to our incredible Production Intern Katie Santamaria.Advertise with us: sincerelyhueman.com/advertisePitch your story: sincerelyhueman.com/contactFollow Sincerely, Hueman on Instagram @sincerelyhuemanThis show is produced by Hueman Group Media.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/sincerelyhueman/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/sincerelyhueman/support
What if there’s a thing you absolutely enjoy that you think: ‘This would be infinitely better if I shared it with another person.’ What if that one thing were your sight — literally the fact that you can see and enjoy everything around you with clarity and without obstruction. It’s something you probably take for granted, but others could only dream of. In this episode, you’ll hear the story of Anirudh Koul, former Head of Artificial Intelligence and Research at AIRA (Artificial Intelligence Remote Assistance ). Anirudh is a prolific innovator who’s worked for tech behemoths like Yahoo and Microsoft. After six years at Microsoft, he joined Aira, a mobile app that connects the blind and low vision community to highly trained, remotely-located agents to enhance their everyday experiences. The service empowers users, who depend on others to perform daily tasks. Time Magazine named Aira one the Best Inventions of 2018. The startup was also selected as a Solver in the recently concluded 2019 Community-Driven Innovation Challenge at MIT Solve, an initiative of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. This year, Aira is committed to hiring 100 military spouses as agents who can work remotely from home, while impacting the lives of Aira users. Aira: aira.ioThis episode was produced in partnership with MIT Solve.MIT Solve: solve.mit.edu——Special thanks to our incredible Production Intern Katie Santamaria.Advertise with us: sincerelyhueman.com/advertisePitch your story: sincerelyhueman.com/contactFollow Sincerely, Hueman on Instagram @sincerelyhuemanThis show is produced by Hueman Group Media.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/sincerelyhueman/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/sincerelyhueman/support

As humans, we have personal motivations to succeed, to make ourselves better. But when the going gets tough and we’re bombarded with challenges, don’t we sometimes feel like quitting?What if our goal was to impact another person’s life, not just ours? And we stuck to that image of that one person, maybe a handful or even thousands of people we can potentially help. Would we be so quick to give up? In the case of June Sugiyama, Director at Vodafone Americas Foundation, flipping the script and refocusing the lens was a daily practice. Instead of thinking about how impossible a goal is, she thought more about the opportunity. And that opportunity was to transform the lives of women and girls through technology, and make their dreams a reality.June is a senior leader in corporate social responsibility, philanthropy and social impact. This year, with June at the helm, Vodafone Americas Foundation joined MIT Solve to support technology solutions empowering women and girls.  MIT Solve is an initiative of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology that advances lasting solutions from tech entrepreneurs to address the world's most pressing problems. In the recently concluded Solve Challenge, CareMother, OneSky Caregiver Training and Raaji are three Solver teams that received $75,000 for the Innovation for Women Prize, made possible by the Vodafone Americas Foundation.Vodafone Americas Foundation: vodafone-us.comThis episode was produced in partnership with MIT Solve.MIT Solve: solve.mit.edu——This episode is sponsored by Coin Up, a revolutionary mobile donation app that makes giving effortless, while making fundraising more efficient.Learn more: coinupapp.com——Advertise with us: sincerelyhueman.com/advertisePitch your story: sincerelyhueman.com/contactFollow Sincerely, Hueman on Instagram @sincerelyhuemanThis show is produced by Hueman Group Media.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/sincerelyhueman/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/sincerelyhueman/support

Prior to starting Queen of Raw, Stephanie worked as a lawyer in the fashion, media/entertainment, start-up, and technology industries and co-founded a sustainable textile manufacturing facility.

What do you want to be most remembered for? When you’re not around, what would you like people to say? Is it how much money you make, awards you’ve received or anything that solely points to your personal accomplishments? What about, how you went out of your way to help a friend or a stranger or how you built a career that ultimately, made a positive impact in the world? In this episode, we’re sharing the remarkable story of Gary Cohen. He is the board chair and founder of Together for Girls, a global public-private partnership dedicated to ending violence against children, with a particular focus on sexual violence against girls. Gary is also the Executive Vice President of Global Health at BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) and President of the BD Foundation.

If you’re part of the younger generation, the idea that you can live a full, healthy and happy life, long enough to see your own children grow, is slipping away because of the greatest threat to humanity: the climate crisis. That’s why we see teen activists like Greta Thunberg and Alexandria Villaseñor holding the megaphone, marching and leading the fight against climate change. They are determined for everyone else to wake up and do something, before irreversible damage is done to our planet.This week, we are proud to work with the Social Good Summit to help amplify stories on their 10th anniversary. A decade ago, Mashable, United Nations Foundation, 92nd Street Y, and United Nations Development Program teamed up to launch a new kind of summit where global leaders, celebrities and activists would gather to celebrate activism, and where attendees would be galvanized into action. SGS will be held on Sunday, September 22nd at the 92nd Street Y. Attendees will hear from a diverse range of speakers, from activist Greta Thunberg to author Jonathan Safran Foer, Katie Couric, Chef Jose Andres, Connie Britton and many more.In Part 1 of our SGS special, you’ll hear the journey of Jessica Coen, Editor in Chief and SVP at Mashable. Jessica has had a prolific career in media. She's held various editorial positions in publications like Vanity Fair and New York Magazine. Apart from her role as Editor in Chief and Head of Content at Mashable, she is also working with remarkable partners at SGS to put together an incredible day of of dialogue and onstage activations.Buy tickets and learn more at: mashable.com/sgsWatch the livestream: mashable.com/sgs-livestream——Advertise with us: sincerelyhueman.com/advertisePitch your story: sincerelyhueman.com/contactFollow Sincerely, Hueman on Instagram @sincerelyhuemanThis show is produced by Hueman Group Media.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/sincerelyhueman/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/sincerelyhueman/support
