Precious Stroud, BlackFemaleProject

The BlackFemaleProject aims to prepare girls and young women for the realities of the work world by introducing stories of triumph and perseverance. Real women with satisfying careers discuss navigation strategies that help them maintain professional leadership. By studying how Black women have survived and thrived in a post affirmative action era, we will reduce the impact of structural racism and empower a generation.

Precious J. Stroud started the story collection and Bay Area Conversation Series to counter the effects of systemic race and gender bias in schools and workplaces.
