After taking part in #BlackOutTuesday last week, we are BACK and having the important conversations with Speaker, Activist and Co-Founder of the organization “From Privilege to Progress, Michelle Saahene. We talk about the experience that lead her to creating her organization, systemic racism, unconscious bias, discrimination and how WE can all help by educating ourselves, using our voices, and taking action. If you have felt angry or sad or wondered “What can I do?!” this episode is for you.
