Through professional development, policy and curriculum development, and coaching, TWW works with educational institutions nationwide to work towards a more equitable and anti-racist system. TWW also has a podcast and blog that looks at issues of race in education. Jenna had previously been an educator in schools, universities, and nonprofits for over 20 years.
