Rad Women Guests:

Anse Tamara Gray is the founder of Rabata, an organization dedicated to promoting positive cultural change through individual empowerment, spiritual upbringing of women by women, and the revival of the female voice in scholarship.

Anita Hall is a retired engineer from General Mills. She was the first woman to graduate with a degree in Agricultural Engineering from the University of Minnesota.   When she started at the U of M, there were no women’s  bathrooms in the Mechanical or Electrical Engineering buildings, and there certainly were no female professors. Throughout her career, Anita has been an advocate for keeping the women-in-engineering pipeline full.

Randi Ilyse Roth is the Executive Director of Interfaith Action whose mission is to unite the people, resources, and voice of the faith community to build a more just, safe and livable East Metro for all.  Randi’s grandparents fled Europe during a time of increased violence against Jews and came to The United States.  She was the first person in her family to go to college.  Randi has a law degree and has used her legal career to help low-income people understand and enforce their rights.
