Making the case and strategies for engaging in cross-racial dialogs between women of color and White women with Kimberlee Willilams

By Jen Cort

Jen Cort is an education consultant in the areas of equity, inclusion, diversity and justice. In this podcast, Jen opens up a "third space"— a place outside our familiar home and work environments — in order that we might begin to engage in some of the provocative questions that need to be addressed. Listen in as Jen speaks with some of the leading thinkers and doers in the field.

Kimberlee is, first and foremost, a humanist, a deep believer in what is possible when humanity is centered. Her mix of authenticity and raw truth permits those around her to choose progress over perfection and bring their whole selves into the room. She is known for finding humor and challenge at just the right moments and, like the best of coaches, leaning in and pushing audiences just enough to believe in the potential she sees. Her approach of connection and compassion makes a consultation feel like a conversation with your best friend, a workshop feel like a workout with your favorite trainer, and a presentation feels like a present from your closest confidant.

Kimberlee received a B.A. in Foreign Language Education from the University of Maryland (go Terps!) and an M.S. in Education from Dominican University. She currently lives in Seattle with her partner, where they refuel by being in the community (with other folks of color), reading and reading some more, and relaxing near any body of water. In addition to all of the above, Kimberlee is a daughter, a granddaughter, a sister, a cousin, an aunt, a niece, a dancer, an avid learner of languages (five to date), a free spirit, an empath, and now a writer.

Dear White Woman, Please Come Home is Kimberlee’s attempt to share with readers what her clients, workshop attendees, and audience members have felt for years. She always brings her entire self, her DC flare, her sass, and her humor. She’s the best friend you didn’t know you had.
