Questioning Authority: the glorification of politeness as a means of controlling women

Jackie Vanderbeck Statera Commuity Conversation.jpeg

As part of Statera's midyear giving campaign, we're publishing a series of deep-dive conversations centered around community, purpose, advocacy, and action. We are asking members of our community to share their “why” with us. In this video, actor and writer Jackie Vanderbeck shares her thoughts on overcoming early negative messaging, the process of claiming personal agency in spaces where there is a power imbalance, and empowering others to do the same.

In addition to her work as an actor and writer, Jackie is also the founding Artistic Director of Sing For Your Seniors. Jackie has been a member of the Statera Community since October 2016 when she attended Statera’s National Conference in Denver, CO. Jackie is a Statera Ambassador as well as a Statera Member.
