Posted by Deanna Singh | Oct 15, 2020 3:00:00 AM

I am so glad that you’re here joining us today for such a wonderful conversation I had with Isioma Nwabuzor, an attorney in the Milwaukee area. Currently, she works with Robert W. Baird, an employee-owned financial services firm, supporting the firm’s US and UK transactions in its private equity business. Isioma is a DREAMer, and in this episode, she shares some of the unseen and unknown hardships of what it is like to be an immigrant in the US, how companies can do a better job of being inclusive, and she also shares information about her organization, The Dreamer Next Door Incorporated and the work they are doing to lift others as we rise.

Topics in this episode

  • The DREAM act
  • Living in a state of limbo as a DREAMer
  • The implications of being a DREAMer
  • Things that those in leadership roles can do to help alleviate some of the challenges of employees who are in marginalized demographics
  • What inclusion looks like in the workplace
  • Education is the ground-zero for empathy
  • The trauma of carrying the weight of a marginalized identity
