For #IWD2020, Getting Creative to Envision a More Gender-Equal World

When reviewing IWD’s #EachforEqual theme, urging us to forge a more gender-equal world, I was drawn to […]

Be Your Own Valentine: A Case for Self-Love

by Jocelyn Jackson | February 13, 2020

Each year, Valentine’s Day gets us all thinking about love—romantic love first, followed by the love we show our friends, families, partners, and more. But 2020—the new decade in all its shining glory—asks us to grow, change and evolve.

Wakanda Forever: A Sea Change in Representation at the Oscars

by Jocelyn Jackson | February 14, 2019

Sea change. /ˈsē ˌCHānj/ Noun. a marked change or a transformation.
