Welcome to the Great Women in Compliance Podcast, co-hosted by Lisa Fine and Mary Shirley. Mary and Lisa are delighted to release a special episode that honors and celebrates Pride month.  There is even distinctive and special cover art for this episode – check it out!

Our guest today is Ryan Rushing, a graphic design artist at Broadcat.  We discuss two main themes with Ryan, leveraging off her specialist skillset of communicating by way of designed documentation as well as how to be a better ally to transgender colleagues in the workplace as well as in a wider societal context.  Ryan came out as trans during the pandemic and shares a piece of her story as well as some considerations to help trans and other LGBTQ+ members feel included and respected.

This is a must listen episode and the perfect way for the GWIC team to close the season.  Lisa and Mary wish their listeners the joy and beauty of all the colors of the rainbow, always and a very happy Pride Month.  They sign off for two weeks and invite you to be a part of their kickoff episode for next season which will be an impromptu Q&A.  Neither Lisa nor Mary will have time to prepare their answers in advance.

Send your questions for Lisa to Mary and your questions for Mary to Lisa!

Look out for the next GWIC episode which will be out on July 21, 2021!

For those of you in the northern hemisphere, it is the season for beach reads and you may be traveling after a long break.  For your time off, you can pick up a copy (or download)  “Sending the Elevator Back Down: What We’ve Learned from Great Women in Compliance” (CCI Press, 2020).

If you’ve already read the booked and liked it, will you help out other women to make the decision to leverage off the tips and advice given by rating the book and giving it a glowing review on Amazon?

As always, we are so grateful for all of your support and if you have any feedback or suggestions for our 2021 line up or would just like to reach out and say hello, we always welcome hearing from our listeners.
