    00:06 Hi, I'm Angela Richard-Eaglin. I'm a family nurse practitioner.

    00:10 I've done that for almost 30 years.

    00:12 And my biggest, greatest passion is being a human advocate.

    00:16 So I have always not by choice, but I have always worked with vulnerable populations.

    00:22 And it happened to be the best thing that ever happened to me, because it led to me focusing all of my energy on this work.

    00:29 Because I do believe that peace is a right, not a privilege, and that every single human being deserves that right.

    00:36 So this series is going to talk about how diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and cultural intelligence can help us all to be a part of establishing peace for everybody, and justice for everybody.

    00:49 And we talk a lot in this world about equity these days.

    00:53 But we need both. Equality and equity.

    00:55 We need the world to be a fair place for everybody.

    00:58 So I'm hoping that by talking about this, and given these concepts about DEIB, and cultural intelligence, and going through all these different concepts, helps us to develop a language, that a shared language so that we can make this world a better place for everybody.

    01:15 And in today's climate, that's extremely important.

    01:19 And it's why I'm so passionate about making sure that we understand the importance of that and in everyday existence.

    01:26 And I think once we acknowledge and embrace that, then it will not be a laborious charge, people won't feel so afraid of it.

    01:34 Because one of the main things that we need to understand is that every single one of us is a human being first.

    01:41 And we don't want to ignore other identities that make us unique individual.

    01:46 So that's the purpose of this whole series.

    01:48 So self-awareness is one of the keys for us moving forward in this work.

    01:53 And knowing that we will never "arrive".

    01:56 It's not a thing that you arrive at.

    01:58 So this is one of those things that literally even though I do this work, and I'm considered an expert to a lot of people.

    02:05 I'm a human first.

    02:07 And so I do have to work, practice, be conscious of everything that I'm saying and doing.

    02:11 And guess what, I still mess up and make mistakes.

    02:14 We all do. We all will.

    02:16 As long as you're a living breathing human being you will.

    02:20 But what we have to remember is give each other grace and try to learn.

    02:24 And so when we talk about those things, and have conversations where we may be uncomfortable, or it's difficult, or we have disagreements, it needs to be done in a respectful kind of way.

    02:34 And also with not attacking humans.

    02:37 We want to talk about the issues, not the people.

    02:40 Well, that's true for all of us because we will make mistakes.

    02:44 The key is how do you pick yourself up and move forward? So we want to be consistent in terms of transforming ourselves when I say this is a journey and not a destination.
