In this conversation, Bethaney sits down with Kay Fabella, also known as The Story Finder. Kay is not only a diversity consultant, but she specializes in helping underrepresented minorities leverage their unique stories for social impact and cultural change. In this conversation, we discuss the complexities of story-telling in the workplace, as well as practices managers and leaders can implement to create more space for tough conversations about race, identity, and culture. Kay Fabella launched her business as the Story Finder in 2014, and created a bilingual English/Spanish brand that quickly reached an audience in 27 countries. She was featured in Fast Company, Thrive Global, The Huffington Post and in El País, and she leveraged her experience as a Filipina-American in Spain to help startups and Fortune 500 companies spread their message, multiply their audiences, and affect change in their industries. In 2019, Kay self-published her memoir titled: Rewrite your story. She now works with underrepresented leaders who want to learn to grow their audiences with integrity, communicate with impact, and step up to change the face of leadership. www.kayfabella.com
