    Creating the Future: In conversation with Tiffany Stevenson

    The growing creator economy is connecting consumers directly to some of the brightest talent out there - talent that’s often overlooked by the gatekeepers of their respective industries.
    Investing in the creator economy gives us an intimate relationship with the people behind the content we love most, but it also provides innovative ways to invest in and elevate marginalized voices.
    To learn more about the creator economy, and its potential to permanently reshape culture, I chatted with Tiffany Stevenson, Chief People Officer at Patreon.

Expansive, Thought-Provoking, Inspiring

Thank you so much for this phenomenal production! I have been reading Anti-Racism Daily newsletter for a few months now, and it is wonderful to hear these deeper investigations into the actions we can take to dismantle racism in our communities.

To all of anti racism

Anti racism is the worst thing ever made it basically means to end b racism against black people we need to be racist to white people so instead of having equality for all people we would have equity which means fair not equal in this society where we would follow Abram X Kennedy we wouldn’t judge people by the content of their character but by the color of their skin. Because América is systemically racist which is bull because you are saying that the whole American dream system is rigged against black people. And if you want to help the minority not only be anti racist against white people but also Asians because statistically they are the most privilege group
