You’re Not “Woke,” You’re Awakening with Julie Pham

Julie Pham is a Cambridge trained historian, Forbes blogger, venture philanthropist, and marketing professional. She is a well-known speaker, writer, and influencer in business communities. We talk about why there's really no such thing as being “woke,” how the fear of seeming “un-woke” can lead to silencing ourselves, the importance of curiosity, and dialog in the face of ignorance. Julie has the courage to explore complex issues of diversity and inclusion even where there's no clear answer.
