It was so fun to chat with Kelsey Merkley (@bella_velo) during our second In Vino Fabulum (#InVinoFab) interview -- women telling their stories. There was a wealth of stuff we chatted about and we hope you enjoy listening to the conversation. Kelsey thinks we need find ways to have more dialogue with those who aren’t always at the table/classroom/conference to be cognizant include a voice that is not always heard, specifically to ensure we have access of knowledge and the opportunity-cost that we miss out on by not learning from an audience that is more representative of all nations. How can we learn to solve issues in education from others? How can we offer space for other voices and remove the barriers for learning?
- What is a “thing” a women in leadership could do for you right now? What is that specific thing? Be precise about what you need for your personal/professional self.
- What is a “thing” an ally can do to support your in your work, role, etc.? Be specific for the type of support, advocacy, sponsor, mentor, etc.
