FEMINIST COACH ACADEMY PODCAST
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!
In it, we share bell hook’s definition, along with other feminists’ definitions, and they relate to our definition of Feminist Coach Theory.
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.
In this new episode, Cam interviews Dr. Anne Fausto-Sterling, the author of Sexing The Body, about how our bodies are socially constructed.
In this new episode, Cam shares Judith Butler’s theory of gender performativity. Cam breaks down Butler’s main points in the book she is most known for, Gender Trouble.
In this new episode, Nai talks to Desiree Adaway about being angry at systems not people, intersectionality, Desiree’s teaching and facilitating on Race, Class & Gender in the Feminist Coach Academy, how we can’t be free when other folx are not, and why her identity as a Black woman is important to her.
In this new episode,Today’s episode is a shorter one and it’s a little bit different. We’re sharing one of the problems from a free webinar that we offer called 4 Problems Feminist Entrepreneurs Need to Overcome to have a Successful Business. Nai will be sharing one of those problems, around the fear of stuffing up and what to do about it.
One of the most common problems that aspiring Feminist Entrepreneurs face and that we need to work through is being afraid of stuffing up. You might worry that you will get things wrong, word things in a way that hurts someone, that you might get called out or called in, or make mistakes and unintentionally cause harm.
In this episode, Nai shares how and why showing up in a feminist way can be challenging, but also why it’s the right thing to do. Plus, Nai explores some of the ways you can overcome it (you’ll never eliminate it completely) so that the fear doesn’t prevent you from showing up and being in business.
In this new episode, our pilot round member Katherine Rose is talking about their experience in our pilot round, how it has shaped their approach to coaching and doing business, and how essential feminism is to coaching.
