    We Who Believe in Freedom: Black Feminist DC: A Conversation with Frédérique Irwin, President of the National Women’s History Museum

    Frédérique Irwin, President of the National Women’s History Museum, discusses their current exhibit, We Who Believe in Freedom: Black Feminist DC. The exhibit traces Black feminism in Washington, DC from the turn of the 20th century through the civil rights and on through to Black Power movements of today. Curated by renowned historians Sherie M. Randolph and Kendra T. Field, the exhibition focuses on the stories and voices of Black feminist organizers and theorists— including Anna Julia Cooper, Eleanor Holmes Norton, Mary Treadwell, and Nkenge Touré—whose expansive work made a difference in the lives of Black women in their Washington, DC communities and for all people throughout the United States.

    New Study: Black Women In White Workplaces Are More Likely to Have Worse Career Outcomes

    New Study: Black Women In White Workplaces Are More Likely to Have Worse Career Outcomes

    New landmark research, by Associate Professor Dr. Elizabeth Linos and co-authors, indicates that Black women may have worse career outcomes when their teams have a greater share of white colleagues. The research out of the Harvard Kennedy School finds that Black women on white teams are more likely to be labeled as "low performers." Additionally, they are promoted less often, and experience higher attrition rates when compared to their peers.
    Dr. Elizabeth Linos is the Emma Bloomberg Associate Professor for Public Policy and Management, and Faculty Director of The People Lab at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government.

Excellent first episode with Dr. Laura Briggs

An insightful and interesting first episode. Dr. Laura Briggs' intelligence and dry wit made for great listening. Looking forward to the next episode!

Sitting in on conversations with smart women.

I love listening to smart women! Ever since the election, I've felt frustrated, and helpless. I'm one of those people who wasn't really paying attention until November. These have been good, constructive conversations. I look forward to more!
