Dr. Rachel Jessica Daniel’s ability to bring forth the necessary conversations about racial equity to the forefront is admirable. I watched her bring stakeholders to the table who were new to racial equity work, and inspire their commitment to close equity gaps. Her ability to lead others is evident in the many colleagues she mentors to also lead.
