Dr.Pat Sander’s podcast

I just listened to Dr. Pat Sanders wonderful podcast on women of color in higher education. I loved the personal and professional questions and answers. It was warm, lively and informative. I want cheer them on. Academia is difficult to navigate and even more so for women of color. This podcast puts a spotlight on the challenges and successes facing us. If you want a positive truthful experience, listen in on professor Dr.Pat Sanders who teaches at University of North Alabama.
