Forest Whitaker

This week, Isha is joined by Oscar winner and founder and CEO of Whitaker Peace and Development Initiative, Forest Whitaker. Forest shares how his early childhood exposure to violence in his community served as a driving force in both his acting career and his activism. He teaches Isha the lesson of the importance of being strategic and methodical with every decision you make and the two bond over their shared experience of running a not-for-profit.
