In today’s episode, I am joined by Janiece Evans and we talk about having it all. What does this really mean? Everyone has a different definition, each significantly different especially for black women. Janiece shares what having it all means to her both in career and personal life.
Janiece is the CEO of Tides Network, a philanthropic partner and nonprofit accelerator dedicated to building a world of shared prosperity and social justice.
Earning her B.S. in Social Sciences/Organizational Behavior at the University of California at Berkeley and an Executive M.B.A. from Golden Gate University in San Francisco, Janiece went on to put her true ‘changemaker’ abilities to work.
