Returning for Part 2 of 2, we resume our chat with Ciera, Director of DEI at the Bertschi School. In this episode we ask, what is it like being a Black woman in white spaces? How can we take these social movements and turn it into actual change? What does our institutions and organizations needs to do and consider first before engaging with communities of color? If you haven't listened to part 1, go back and listen! Join us for more Black Woman Wisdom.
