VBB 231 Kimberley John-Morgan: Advocate for Anyone Facing Social Isms!
Kimberley John-Morgan is a strong, unapologetic voice for historically excluded communities subjected to social isms — racism, sexism, classism, ableism, heterosexism, and other forms of oppression. Through her writing and equity education sessions, Kimberley advocates increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), especially where people spend most of their time — at work. Kimberley’s professional journey began with a bachelor’s degree in sociology and family and child studies, but her passion for working in DEI education stems from being first-generation and witnessing her parents struggle to navigate a new country and systemic discrimination. “Throughout my career, I’ve had to overcome multiple isms from people who did not think I was qualified because of my age, sex, or race, but after the murder of George Floyd, I decided I needed to put myself out there and let people know that what I love the absolute most is empowering people who face isms imposed on them.”
It was great to know that the interview would be unscripted. You and Heather gave me the freedom to openly share my personal experiences with infertility and be transparent with my story.
