With Ronda Taylor Bullock, co-founder and lead curator, we are

When Ronda Taylor Bullock enrolled in her doctoral program at the UNC School of Education in 2014, she planned to be an educator, not a social entrepreneur. Yet growing social unrest across the country drove her to become both. As co-founder of a social startup that provides anti-racism education to families, children and educators, Bullock discusses how her research and pedagogy help shape her business decisions and why it’s critical to inspire people to become more than just cognitive allies.

She offers advice for social entrepreneurs on why it’s important to build a diverse executive board, ways to make social ventures financially sustainable, and how to maintain personal and professional boundaries when the substance of your work intertwines tightly with who you are as a person. Bullock also offers words of inspiration for students of color just getting started on their entrepreneurial journeys.
