Ep. 20: The Anti-Racist Marketer
In this episode Jaime talks with Liz Gross, founder and CEO of Campus Sonar, about anti-racism in higher education. As colleges and universities work to deepen their commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), many have taken the step to pledge themselves to the cause of anti-racism. This work, however, requires the commitment of many more across campus. Takeaways from this episode include:
* How anti-racism is different from being “not racist”
* Steps leaders can take to bring an anti-racist approach to their organization
* How white people can – and need to be – engaged in this across campus
* Ways to recruit and retain staff from marginalized communities
Both Liz and Jaime acknowledge that, as two white women, they likely get things wrong and they apologize in advance for any harm they may cause in this conversation.
