We sit down with Columbia and UCLA Law School professor Kimberlé Crenshaw. She’s a leading authority on civil rights and Black feminist legal thought, the force behind the #SayHerName campaign, which calls attention to police violence against Black women, and she also coined the term intersectionality.
In this episode of DNA of a MAKER, we asked Professor Crenshaw to detail the traits that have contributed to her overall success, and her thoughts on privilege and questioning authority. Plus, she tackles our lightning round of questions that will illuminate the characteristics that make her unique.
With the DNA of a MAKER podcast, we wanted to push the conversation forward to the next level — a deep dive into the traits of our MAKERS — and ask, “What are the traits that make MAKERS leaders? What traits give them the courage to fight for diversity and inclusion, and in turn, the courage to effect change?”
On DNA of a MAKER, we’re bringing together all different kinds of changemakers -- unified in their commitment to do better and be better -- to see what we can learn from their journey.
