In this episode, we discuss the role of social and cultural responsiveness in social impact.
We chat with Dr. Omolara Uwemedimo and explore how to ensure our social impact programs are actually addressing the needs of the community they serve and how to continually receive their feedback. We look at connecting an individual's work to responsiveness and the role of employee resource groups.
Finally, we talk about Dr. Uwemedimo's social impact journey and her work on Strong Children Wellness and Melanin and Medicine.
