FEMINIST COACH ACADEMY PODCAST
Welcome to the Feminist Coach Academy podcast where inclusive feminism, business and coaching meet.
This podcast is proudly brought to you by the co-founders of the Feminist Coach Academy – Naomi Arnold and Cameron Airen.
We are feminist life + biz coaches, both passionate about helping coaches, therapists, helping professionals, practitioners and entrepreneurs integrate a feminist lens and perspective into their businesses, life and client practice.
On this podcast, we plan to help you do so.
Please find our Feminist Coach Academy podcast episodes below for your enjoyment.
In this episode Feminist Coach Academy co-founders, Cam and Nai share our feminist reading recommendations.
In this episode Cam interviews Jolinda Johnson, a Wellness Mentor and Priestess who is a current student of the Feminist Coach Academy Certification Training. Jolinda helps her clients break up with burnout and return to the wild, whole, healthy and free.
In this brief update, FCA co-founders Cam + Nai let you know what to expect from the remainder of this season, our next season coming up in 2021, our March 2021 intake, and our NEW MERCH STORE. They also send you their wishes for the end of 2020 and beginning of 2021.
Nai and Cam have a conversation about the things that they as FCA co-founders have been learning and implementing, as they learn alongside members in the current intake of the Feminist Coach Theory Certification Training.
Cam interviews Lena West, a Business Coach and Strategist and also one of the Advisory Board for the FCA. Lena is also the Founder and CEO of CEO Rising, an online business accelerator and digital media platform for women identified entrepreneurs. It connects entrepreneurs with the three things they need to grow a sustainable, scaleable and ethical business: coaching, community and cash.
Lena shares what Feminism means to her and what drew Lena to the Feminist Coach Academy. Cam and Lena discuss why the big brands really should be investing in the FCA training and what Lena teaches about breaking free of Bro Culture in business. Even though we’ve gotten used to these oppressive strategies and tactics in business, we can unlearn them and we can let the brands know when their techniques and tactics are not ok.
Lena explains why the sense of urgency is so problematic and Cam shares an example of how together with Nai they are working on unlearning this in the FCA.
Plus they discuss learning ethical marketing practices, why Lena restructured her entire business model, the power of modelling what we want to see mirrored in the world and the relationship between boundaries and generosity.
Lena also shares a bit about CEO Rising and her experiences being both a student and on the advisory board for FCA. Find out more at https://www.ceorising.co

This is a follow on from the Q&A episode in Season 2 so you may also like to return to that episode for answers to more questions too.
Wahoo, Season 3 of the podcast is HERE! 🎉
And, we’re kicking it off with an episode breaking down what feminism is!

You’ll definitely want to listen to this one to get to know how we define feminism in our academy and to help inform your own understanding and growth.
This one is all about moving beyond gendered terms in your biz. This month, our members get access to our module on Unlearning Gender & Moving Beyond the Binary, and this is a great episode in conjunction with that. But, even if you’re not a member, you can listen to this episode for free and learn how you can moving beyond gendered language in your biz.
This episode is for any helping professional and entrepreneur learning how to do business your way, integrate Feminist Values and be inclusive and led by social justice in your work, business and practice. We believe at the Feminist Coach Academy that if you want to have a successful and a thriving Feminist Business then the thing to do is actually to invest in your feminist growth because that is what will help you do that.
