Episode 67: Breaking Silence with Alli Meyerhardt

Episode 67: Breaking Silence with Alli Meyerhardt

In episode #67 of CULTURE goodr, Stephen interviews Alli Meyerhardt, the executive director of Breaking Silence. Breaking Silence is a nonprofit that inspires communities to take action against interpersonal violence through the power of empathy, healing, and open dialogue.

Stephen and Alli discuss:
- how a childhood experience at a McDonald's PlayPlace made Alli openhearted and unafraid to approach people
- how she created Breaking Silence 10 years ago and fostered its growth while working other jobs (including head of sales at goodr!!!)
- how the nonprofit creates safe spaces at businesses to have tough conversations about serious topics like sexual assault and domestic violence
- goodr's history of supporting Breaking Silence through collaborative sunglasses, and the powerful responses from survivors
- Breaking Silence's traveling exhibit, where visitors tour immersive rooms while listening to stories from survivors and perpetrators of interpersonal violence
- the Breaking Silence podcast, where Alli interviews others about the healing journey, suicide prevention, story ownership, and more
- what's next for her nonprofit, and why her primary objective this year is "to disrupt"
- how YOU can support Breaking Silence, and what status quo in businesses needs to be challenged the most
