This week on The Well Woman Show, I interview Precious Brady-Davis. She is an award-winning diversity advocate, communications professional, and public speaker. She served for three years as the assistant director of diversity recruitment initiatives at Columbia College Chicago, her alma mater, implementing the campus-wide diversity initiative and providing leadership and oversight of national diversity recruitment and inclusion policies. Precious is married to Myles Brady and lives in Hyde Park on the South Side of Chicago, where they are raising their daughter. On the show, Precious shares her profound journey as a biracial, gender-nonconforming kid in foster care to becoming a fully actualized trans woman.

We discuss:

  • The struggles of growing up in foster care,
  • The importance of advocating for yourself in the workplace,
  • and Precious Brady-Davis's struggles of being a fully actualized trans woman.

The book Precious recommended was My Vanishing Country: A Memoir by Bakari Sellers
