Routinely sought after for her expert guidance on child welfare and community development, she has been featured in The New York Times, Daily News, Barron’s, Crain’s New York, The Economist, The Chronicle of Philanthropy, and Essence, and on several television programs.

Ms. Williams-Isom currently serves as the James R. Dumpson Chair in Child Welfare Studies at the Graduate School of Social Service at Fordham University. Previously, she was COO then CEO for the Harlem Children’s Zone. She worked with NYPD in Brooklyn at the height of community policing in the 1980s, and at the NYC Administration for Children's Services after practicing law for five years at two of New York’s most prestigious firms.

The recipient of numerous awards, Ms. Williams-Isom also serves on several boards. In October 2019 she was chosen as one of the “Nonprofit Power 100” by City & State magazine and one of the “The 2020 Education Power 100” in February 2020.

He is a contributing writer at The Atlantic and a CBS News racial justice contributor. Kendi is the 2020-2021 Frances B.
