It is important to listen to the peoples of the Pasifika and Oceania during Asian Pacific Islander/Asian Pacific American Heritage Month and beyond.
Here, Gabes has a conversation with Sage Ke’alohilani Quiamno. Sage is an Indigenous Native Hawaiian award-winning entrepreneur, speaker, and changemaker. She is the CEO & co-founder of Future For Us, a platform dedicated to advancing women of color. Sage has galvanized a nationwide movement to build a future of work reaching new levels of growth through diversity, equity, and inclusion.
After spending 7 years in Seattle, Washington, and now back home to her home in Hawai’i, Sage reflects on her time in having to contend racist and sexist spaces in the corporate world, while also reflecting on what it’s like to process the present and ancestral grief and rage in light of her lived experiences of colonialism against her, her people, and the land.
