About the Episode:

As a Japanese-American woman, Irene Nakamura understands how women of color are often oppressed. Growing up in a Japanese household, Irene had to break from suppressive cultural traditions. Once she entered the business world, she encountered more cultural oppression.

Breaking free from suppressive cultural traditions can be hard, but Irene is paving the way and helping other women do the same. She recommends four ways to overcome culturally suppressive upbringings.

  1. Identify your discomfort zone
  2. You’ll never be fully ready, so commit and figure it out as you go
  3. Break free from toxic influences
  4. Find your tribe of people who will support you

Ready to break free from cultural oppression? Listen to this episode, hear Irene’s advice, and get the encouragement you need to overcome obstacles!
