David Bowie

“Look up here, I’m in Heaven!”

When I watched David Bowie’s final Lazarus video, I was deeply and profoundly moved. To see an artist be creative up until the very last days of his life affected me deeply. He knew he had days or weeks to live. Yet, he choose to spend that time immersed in art. I believe we are all creative beings and we need to make space (and time) for our own artistic expression.

Gloria Steinem

“Real change grows like a tree, from the bottom up.”

My dear friend and author Amy Richards (Manifesta: Young Women, Feminism, and the Future and Opting In: Having a Child Without Losing Yourself) invited me to an event with feminist, journalist, social / political activist and trailblazer Gloria Steinem, who at 81 sat down for a conversation with actress Melissa McCarthy to promote her new book My Life on the Road. Not surprisingly the evening was inspiring, funny and empowering, but what struck me most was Gloria Steinem’s humble and generous spirit. She summed it up best when she said, “We are all human beings.” I am grateful to have so many talented female friends like Amy and to women like Gloria Steinem who stood up and fought for equality and justice for all.

Jimmy Carter

This week I was inspire by a short NPR interview with Jimmy Carter. Even though he’s 91 with brain cancer, he was supposed to be in Nepal last week helping earthquake victims. Since that trip didn’t work out because of red tape, he was at a Habitat for Humanity build event. While it’s easy for many of us to become jaded and cynical as we grow older, Jimmy Carter truly lives life to the fullest with a deep sense of humility, optimism and faith. I am deeply inspired by his example of a life well lived.

Philanthropy U

This week I was inspired by a NYT article, Online University Helps Philanthropic Groups and Their Leaders,” about Philanthropy University. As described in the article, Philanthropy U was founded by Amr Al-Dabbagh, a Saudi businessman and philanthropist. Through his family’s Foundation, he worked with Berkeley’s Haas School of Business to create “massive open online courses,” also known as MOOCs, on how to be a better philanthropist and leader of a nonprofit group. Professors include Paul Brest (total genius) professor emeritus at Stanford Law and former president of the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and Jessica Jackley a co-founder of Kiva. Each course is broken into short segments of about 11 minutes that stretch over 7 weeks. People who complete all 7 courses receive a certificate in social sector leadership from the Haas School. I’m excited about the possibilities because I am convinced MOOCs, like Philanthropy U and Coursera, will completely transform and democratize education, and in doing so, change the world. So stop binge watching shows on Netflix and instead make yourself smarter by signing up for a free online course today.

Do Unto Others

This week I was inspired by Pope Francis’ historic speech to Congress. As someone who was raised Catholic and is now a proud feminist, I don’t agree with all of his positions. However, I appreciated his message of empathy, kindness and peace. I felt humbled when he reminded us of The Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” This wisdom is something that guides the way I move through this world and the opportunity to collectively pause and reflect amid all the tragedy and conflict around the globe was a very profound moment.

GOING FIRST

This week I was inspired by a Los Angeles World Affairs Council event featuring a conversation with Senator Diane Feinstein. I admire any woman who has had as many “firsts” as Senator Feinstein. In 1969 she was elected to the SF Board of Supervisors, eventually becoming the 1st woman ever to serve as the board’s president. In 1978 when Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk were assassinated, Feinstein became acting mayor and San Francisco’s 1st female mayor. In 1992, she became the 1st woman elected to the U.S. senate from California. Feinstein was the 1st female member of the Senate Judiciary Committee and the 1st woman to chair the Senate Rules and Administration Committee. Thank you to Senator Feinstein and to all of the women trailblazers, who by being first, created a world of possibilities for all of us who followed.
