RISE trained 12 youth coaches from the Salt Lake City area to facilitate modules from the RISE leadership program with their middle and high school soccer players. The modules focus on Identity & Diversity, Building Trust, Building Community, and Leadership. RISE’s Kim Miller led the coaches clinic Wednesday, June 20, at Real Salt Lake headquarters, Zions Bank Real Academy, as part of Major League Soccer’s Soccer For All month. Soccer For All, an effort of MLS Works – the league’s community outreach initiative – emphasizes MLS’ commitment to end discrimination and showcases the collective efforts taking place throughout the league to drive positive social change. #SoccerForAll#diversity#identity#leadership @mls @mlsworks @RealSaltLake @millerkm
We are documenting our ever-challenging but equally fun path to getting this tv show made so I thought I’ll share a bit of video here with you. The next picture shows our fabulous, extremely talented American cast without whom this would’ve not been possible! 🙏Testing if the material works for American audiences turned into a successful evening where we all cried with laughter. It’s indeed a very funny show!! ☺️ I also love that we are absolutely set on a completely diverse cast. I’m sick of seeing just one (and predominantly white)
ethnicity on screen. In multicultural places like London and New York most people couldn’t care less what someone’s skin colour or accent is! ✨I want to have THAT kind of world shown in the media. And yes, we also sneaked my favourite issues mental health and body positivity into it because we need a more realistic (and less exhausting!) representation of us humans! Tired of hiding! Let’s celebrate vulnerability and authenticity together! 🎉Soooo, if anyone knows investors to get the bloody pilot done, send them my way 😉😂 TV land is a tough playground which is still not super welcoming to women so we need all the support we can get to make this show! 🔥💪Anyways one more time London love from NYC, fellow crazies! Hope you are all okay! 😘❤️😘 #tv#filmmaker#writer#tableread#mentalhealth#diversity#bopo#femalefilmmakers#pushingforward#comedy#londonshow#creativelife#goals#nyc#redhead#ruiva#comedywriter#scriptwriting#girlpower#womeninfilm

A huge shoutout to my Economic Policy team (especially @alexisllewis!) and folks from the entertainment industry for kicking off the summer cohort of the Evolve Entertainment Fund with a boot camp training for students that primarily focuses on soft skill development. The Fund was launched in February with @mayorofla and @ava to expand entertainment opportunities to low income Angelenos and increase inclusion and diversity within the industry. Great job team! I should go on vacation more often 😊 #losangeles#inclusion#diversity#hollywood#entertainment#wework
