Episode 19: Heather White

Ta for Ta: Women, Success, China

This week on Ta for Ta, Juliana speaks with Heather White, the director of the documentary film Complicit and the founder and former executive director of Verité, a nonprofit that advocates for labor rights and partners with entities in both the public and private sector. The conversation follows Heather’s career and interactions with China — tangentially at first, as an undergraduate at Harvard, before she moved there to work after the United States established trade relations with the People’s Republic of China. She spent years shining a light on labor injustices and conducting audits in China on behalf of major U.S. brands.
