E77: The Liberation of Being Yourself: A Conversation with Caroline Wanga (Re-Release)

Minneapolis is hosting the NCAA Women’s Final Four next weekend, and we can’t wait to celebrate women’s sports and be part of some seriously joyful energy in downtown Minneapolis. We are also excited that Essence Magazine will be in town for the Final Four, joining our whole community as we showcase the best of Minneapolis for a national audience. To celebrate, this week we’re revisiting an oldie-but-goodie from our podcast archives: Chanda’s conversation with Caroline Wanga, a charismatic powerhouse who served as Target’s Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer before assuming her current role as CEO of Essence. In this August 2019 episode, Caroline shares how she developed grit and resilience as a young mother, her journey to self-acceptance, and how who you are is non-negotiable.
