Chandra Sanders is a Diversity, Equity & Inclusion champion on a mission to create economic opportunities for moms and women of color. As Director for RISE, the inaugural initiative from The Mom Project’s not-for-profit arm, MomProject.org, her goal is to empower moms and women of color through transformative upskilling programs. A mother who lost her job during the coronavirus pandemic, Sanders initially looked to The Mom Project as a resource to find a new job with one of their 2,000+ companies, before landing a role with the company itself. Sanders is a former high school Spanish teacher turned Fortune 100 Senior Tech Consultant (Google, Pfizer, Anthem) who remains committed to helping moms and women of color challenge stereotypical representation in the workplace and gain access to greater economic opportunities.
