In the wake of racial injustices that continue to occur in this country I took some time to have some real talk with my dear friend Nisreen Dawan about what her experiences have been as a Black woman in America. The conversation was so rich that we agreed that it would be valuable to share. We did our best during the podcast to recreate some of what we had originally talked about. It was my intention to give her voice a platform to be heard. We explored things like microaggressions and how unconscious and implicit bias plays out in both subtle and profound ways. I am deeply grateful to her for her willingness to share so openly and generously.
