Irwin Blumer Endorses Yvonne Spicer

When she was appointed as the Director of Newton’s Tech-Voc program, the trade teachers, who were all men, had reservations about a Black woman leading the program. Yet, in a very short period of time she had their complete loyalty. How did she do that? First, she established trust, by being honest and transparent, by listening to people, by speaking from her head and her heart. – Irwin Blumer more
