Reflections from the Founding Leadership Team, Parts 1-5

In this five-part conversation, Ché Abram, podcast host and inaugural cohort member, talks with fellow members of the inaugural leadership team. This is the group of volunteers responsible for our behind-the-scenes operations, outreach, events support, and more; they’ve given their time to make sure the project is moving forward. Ché leads the group in a conversation focused on what’s led us to the present reality of BlackFemaleProject, what’s changed over the past few years, and why each team member has felt compelled to contribute to sustaining the work.
