Practicing Radical Empathy with Author Dr. Terri Givens

Dr. Terri Givens returns to the show to talk about her newly released book Radical Empathy: Finding a Path to Bridging Racial Divides and its implications in higher education and society more broadly. We touch on Terri’s personal story and how it taught her to be vulnerable and to get comfortable in her own skin. This involves empathy for yourself, your family, and your neighborhood as you progress to take action to effect change which is the radical part of Radical Empathy.

We dive into Terri’s perspectives on Higher Education and Education Leadership as a black woman confronting structural racism in a compelling and personal story that we hope resonates.
