Stephanie Mash Sykes, Class of 2004, eyes the future of American cities on the latest episode of the “She Roars” podcast. As executive director of the African American Mayors Association, she is focused on the panoply of issues facing black urban leaders today — from demographic trends that are re-shaping their constituencies to new technologies that are redefining political engagement.

Stephanie discusses the new wave of millennial and women mayors in her organization and how their presence might shape policies on paid family leave, maternal health, criminal justice and more. 

The “She Roars” podcast was launched in October 2018 to celebrate women at Princeton, following the University’s successful alumni conference of the same name.
