Ep 18: Uncensored: Being a bridge for anti-racism when you’d rather take a nap with Fatimah Williams
I was all set for this season finale episode to answer two recent, most recurring listener questions: 1) Should I get a PhD, given the current climate in higher education? 2) How do graduating PhDs look for work in a WFH environment and compressed job market?
I get to those questions toward the end of the episode. But first, I address the #1 question that’s been in my inbox and DMs: What has been your experience of racism, and how are you doing these days? I share from my perspective as a cultural anthropologist, a Black woman living in America, and a black business owner — yes, sometimes ya’ll forget that I run a company, manage a team, and offer services. Pull up a seat for an open, productive conversation about being a bridge for anti-racism and managing life, business and emotional health during a pandemic and racial upending.
