Episode 10 – Unlocking Your Legacy with Cherie Buckner-Webb

In a predominantly white city, one Black woman leverages her unique perspective and experience to become a state representative and fight for the inclusion of all. Cherie Buckner-Webb learned early on that she would have to work hard to be true to herself and to be respected in her community. She has dedicated her career to helping others, including young women and minorities. She is a strong advocate for collective action and has a passion for history and for leaving a legacy. Today, Cherie will be talking about navigating being the “only one in the room” throughout her career and the importance of legacy and community.

Cherie Buckner-Webb is the founder and principal of Sojourner Coaching. She served in the Idaho State Legislature, serving in the Idaho House of Representatives in 2010 and the Idaho State Senate in 2012, 2014, 2016, and 2018. Cherie’s credo, “leave a legacy,” underscores her work in every area of activity and to that end, she donates countless hours to a variety of community organizations. She currently serves on the boards of the Andrus Center for Public Policy, the Northwest Area Foundation, Women and Children’s Alliance, College of Western Idaho, and the Blue Cross of Idaho Care Plus Board.
