013: Helping Women Rise with Chandra Sanders, The Mom Project
Brief summary of show:
In this week’s episode, I chat with Chandra Sanders, Director of RISE at The Mom Project.
Chandra Sanders is a Diversity, Equity & Inclusion champion on a mission to create economic opportunities for moms and women of color. Chandra is a former high school Spanish teacher turned Fortune 100 Senior Tech Consultant, committed to helping moms and women of color challenge stereotypical representation in the workplace and gain access to greater economic opportunities and influence.
Currently, as the Program Director for RISE, she is on a mission to empower moms and women of color through a variety of transformative programs.
I’m so grateful that Chandra shared her wisdom and insight with us around how moms can get back into the workforce, and really tap into what they really want to be doing, all while taking care of their kids and families.
