A New York City-based attorney, Andrea Alexander has personally experienced many of the ways in which racial inequality affects people in the professional and academic worlds. Andrea defines herself as a legal advocate by day and an advocate for social change by night, and today she joins Daily Matters to speak openly about the changes that need to happen in society.
In this episode, Andrea and Jack Newton discuss:
- Her experiences as a New Yorker and new mother during this turbulent time
- The challenges facing black Americans in the workforce
- Why Andrea is optimistic—but also cautious—about the potential for change
- What law firms, companies, and individuals need to start doing to initiate true progress
