On the Schmooze

Welcome to On the Schmooze, a weekly podcast that features a mix of interviews and solo shows. My hope is that insights from me and my guests will help you achieve the leadership position you’re seeking, build and sustain your professional network, and find the work/life balance that works best for you. Interviews are with talented people from different fields. We explore how they built strong networks and overcame challenges on their way to becoming successful leaders. I identify a key take-away from each interview, something you can put into action that week that you’ll benefit from for years to come. In the show notes I provide resources to help you get started. Solo shows are shorter episodes where I share practical networking tips and techniques you can put into practice right away. Podcast inspired by Dorie Clark, Pat Flynn, Jonny Nastor, Dale Carnegie.

Today’s guest helps workplaces build inclusive cultures by addressing barriers to equity and access.

She is a diversity and inclusion strategist, author of an award-winning book, “The Diversity Advantage: Fixing Gender Inequality In The Workplace,” and Seattle University’s Professional-in-Residence in Communication.

She was also recognized as one of 30 management thinkers to watch globally, as part of the Thinkers50 2019 Radar.

Please join me in welcoming Ruchika Tulshyan.

In this episode we discuss:

  • her thoughts on leadership: “To me, leadership is to inspire others to get uncomfortable and lead them to take action to make changes in the world.”
  • how it took her a long time to think of herself as a leader because of messaging that says women, and especially women of color, don’t get to be leaders.
  • her experience growing up in culturally-diverse Singapore, and how that has framed her passion for working with underserved people.
  • how she was always a storyteller but didn’t realize there were careers where she could tell stories for a living.
  • her method for teaching her students about privilege by having them do a “privilege walk.”
  • how she intentionally networks and has created intentional communities, especially for people who are considered a minority.
