The Common Ground Experiment

This week our guest is Cimaje Best, Program Manager and director of fellowships for the OpEd project.  The Op Ed project is an organization  working to amplify the voices of the under-represented by empowering them to take thought leadership positions in their fields (through op-eds and much more); The Op Ed project’s goal is to provide a diversity of voices working to solve the world’s biggest problems because when we become more inclusive, we collectively become more intelligent, free, and just.  Cimaje has spent her professional and personal life doing capacity building work, even before her position at the op ed project.  She is a strong, calm, force for good in this world, and I can’t tell you how grateful I am for her example for my students and our guests.  I'm so inspired by her, and I know you will be, too! Interviewing her on this episode are Sophia, Emma and Ellagrace. I hope you enjoy this colorful conversation with Cimaje as much as we did.  To learn more about her work with the OpEd Project,  click HERE.  You can read Cimaje's Huffington Post article HERE.
