Sumi Pendakur // Aligning social media with social action, living in integrity and addressing the real horror of the hit film "Get Out"
6 days ago
Meet the Bollywood Bond girl of higher education Dr. Sumun Pendakur – or at least in this episode we laugh she could be. She aims to meld the political, personal, family, and professional – challenging listeners to stake a claim in this world and put power, voice, and a purpose especially for marginalized communities. As the Associate Dean of Institutional Diversity at Harvey Mudd College, her words match her deeds every day on and off-campus. Scroll through her Facebook or Twitter you’ll find the same – and maybe even feel more convicted to action that you did before. Sumi is a role model in digital leadership, calling out systems of oppression and injustice. Sometimes this is even through entertainment, as we discussed the hit movie Get Out. She accomplishes all this with an ethos of love, laughter, and genuine authenticity.
