As Diverse As Two Peas In A Pod

By As Diverse As Two Peas In A Pod

“We are all born free and equal.” (United Nations Declaration of Human Rights, Article 1) … like two peas in a pod.
The reality is often different – not only because each of us brings our individuality to the pod we live in, but also because of the reality of the system by which too many people are affected.
As Diverse As Two Peas In A PodCast is a platform to explore those differences, and how DEI affects each and everyone of us.
Each episode tackles the challenges and struggles of being true to ourself, and aims at designing actions to become more equitable and inclusive in everything we do.

Episode 8 - Strengthening Cross-generational Communication For A More Inclusive World - With Shee Shee Van Inwegen
With over four decades leveraging communication expertise to enhance relationships, I guide leaders in building inclusive connection across generations, bridging knowledge transfer and cross-mentoring for greater organizational results. As a generational relationship strategist and coach adept at empowering leaders of all ages and life stages, my passion for helping people create authentic relationships comes from my story: born into a 5-generation family, as the youngest of 8 children I quickly learned to navigate generational differences at home. My professional history, too, is all about relationship: creating, building, maintaining, enhancing, repairing (and if appropriate, ending) them with employees, managers, teams, clients, customers, kids, and colleagues. From delivering c-suite leadership development and training, to liaising with government agencies, to managing corporate comms, I’ve mentored and coached company presidents, new hires, elders, managers, shipyard workers, students, and tech wizards, who in their most important roles were also parents, partners, and adult children. Experienced in cultivating diverse global relationships and guiding leaders in building bridges of relational equity, I support you in confidently leveraging your relationships to create true, real, communication and connection, for inclusion, respect, and regard in your Life/Work. Big changes are my life’s business! Dog-lover, wife, and mom, I have a faith that grounds me. I am boldly transparent, fun-loving, fierce, & I lead with love. Change, well, between living in 4 countries (if you count Texas, which we do), launching my come-back career mid-life after a status-quo-busting health wake-up call, and navigating life stages, I’m all about being ready for anything.
