Uncomfortable question: Why can’t we as women get behind policies that strengthen all women - not just the ones who are White - especially when the only ones who really benefit from White supremacy and the status quo are rich White men?
We bring you a conversation with one of the founders of the original Women’s March and author of Raising Our Hands, Jenna Arnold, who spent years speaking with White women in their homes about just these very topics.

What to listen for:
Jenna Arnold is listed as one of Oprah’s “100 awakened leaders who are using their voices and talent to elevate humanity” because she doesn’t have much patience for the status quo. She has been called a “disruptor” in every industry in which she has dabbled from elementary school classrooms to halls of the United Nations, MTV, and the White House.
Her recent book, Raising Our Hands, was released on a number of Best Seller lists in the summer of 2020. She is the Chief Impact Officer for Rethink Capital Partners, a diversified investment platform with sector-specific vehicles focused on both financial & social returns for our investors.
For her work as one of the organizers of the Women’s March, Jenna was recognized with a Glamour Women of the Year award. The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Forbes, and Fast Company, to name a few, have recognized Jenna’s work as “shaking up long-standing assumptions” and being one of “the biggest ideas in social change” for the work of ORGANIZE, a non-profit she co-founded focused on ending the waitlist for organ transplants in America, for which she was also named one of Inc. magazine’s “35 Under 35” list.
