In the spirit of Mental Health Awareness Month, we have decided to take it easy this Memorial Day week by re-running a great PR Talk episode. During the episode, Amy speaks with Libra Forde, Executive Director of the Women’s Foundation of Oregon, which dismantles sexism, racism, and structural oppression through the movement of resources and ideas in the Portland region.

The interview touches on finding motivation while working from home, coping with job loss, and Libra’s perspective on New Year’s resolutions. The conversation also explores Libra’s journey as a reformed homeschooled student and how she started her video series, “Motivational Minute.”
