PhD in Leadership and Change alumnae Drs. Froswa’ Booker-Drew and Harriet Schwartz recently joined together for a powerful discussion focused on race, power, privilege, and perspective. The Tapestry, a podcast aiming to bring people together to explore the rich, woven textures of shared narratives, is hosted by Dr. Booker-Drew who welcomed Dr. Schwartz to the episode entitled “Relationships and Race”. As lead scholar for the International Center for Growth in Connection Dr. Schwartz is at the forefront of applying Relational Cultural Theory (RCT) to teaching and learning, particularly in higher education. Sharing this expertise Dr. Booker-Drew additionally specializes in RCT, diversity, belonging, inclusion, and equity in work which is the focus of her upcoming 2021 Servant Leadership Conference presentation entitled Servant Leadership and Equity.
Both alumnae are involved in affiliate roles with The Graduate School of Leadership and Change (GSLC) and Dr. Schwartz will be joining the Core Faculty in the coming year.
