Alisha Johnson Wilder — We Do the Heart Work
As Apple’s Director of Environment, Policy & Social Initiatives/Racial Equity & Justice Initiative (REJI), Alisha Johnson Wilder’s work can collide with so much of what’s heavy today. How she navigates it: By giving herself—and her team—time and space to process. In this episode, Alisha talks with Shine's co-founder Marah Lidey about how she cares for her mental health as a leader in the DE&I space, what helped her overcome imposter syndrome, and the ways we can build a more inclusive tech sector. Content warning: Today’s episode mentions racial injustice, racial violence, and mass shootings.
