In this episode, we speak with Shawna Gann. She is a management consultant in the DC Metro area. Though originally from Anchorage, Alaska, she has lived and worked all around the world, primarily teaching elementary school. In recent years she shifted gears to focus on organizational development and other workplace matters. She is currently pursuing her Ph.D. in Business Psychology with a focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion specifically for those perceived as racially ambiguous. This pursuit also inspired the creation of her weekly podcast, Our True Colors.
In this fun episode, we talked about how we both of us are racially ambiguous and are judged based on where we are and things surrounding #BlackLivesMatter.
