#CreatorswithInfluence Podcast S1, EP10 Our #ThisIsRamadan Takeover continues with guest @AliaKemet of @mccormickspice on connecting through food.

Summer is taking over the Creators with Influence Podcast to “spotlight GenZ and millennial creators who use their tech-savviness, entrepreneurial ingenuity, personal style, and diverse culture to reimagine what it means to be a modern Muslim,” she said.

Dr. Hina Cheema, MD of @StoryofStyle, joined AIC’s @SummerAlbarcha on #CreatorswithInfluence #Podcast. Listen to episode 9 for our #ThisIsRamadan takeover on @americaninfluencercouncil’s @YouTube channel and everywhere podcasts are available.

Dr. Hina is a Dallas-based obstetrician-gynecologist who is passionate about social justice advocacy. In this episode, she discusses advancing women’s rights through healthcare.

In a study by @Gallup, the @americanprogress found that “a network of misinformation experts actively promotes Islamophobia in America. The promotion of Islamophobia creates both prejudice and discrimination among the general population.”

Developing cross-group friendships, cultivating awareness about the biases of groups outside your own encounter, and building empathy for others are ways to reduce stereotypes and encourage inclusion.
