Professional Interests: intersection of education and mental health; embodied pedagogies; leadership developmentCurriculum Vitae
At Mills Since 2019
Dr. Wendi Williams’ work centers on the development, implementation, and evaluation of school and community-based health and educational interventions that promote health and well-being among youth, their families, and the educational and mental health practitioners who will work with them. Through her scholarship and research activity, she has articulated an intersectional approach to psycho-social spiritual intervention for middle school girls. The foundations of this work have extended to reflective-intervention to facilitate leadership development among diverse women and Black/African women, specifically. Recent scholarship includes, “Frenemies in the Academy: Relational Aggression among African American Women Academicians”, and a Special Issue on “Feminist Approaches to Interventions with Black Girls and Women” (June 2019), for the journal Women and Therapy. She is currently working on a new book, Black women at work: On being masked, muted, and muzzled.
