Dr. Rhonda Harley '22 PhD, Assistant Dean of Student Engagement and Inclusive Excellence at USD Shiley-Marcos School of Engineering joined “At the Edge of it All” to discuss her philosophy behind "cultural capital."

Dr. Harley explains how everyone can use their personal background, their advantages, and even perceived disadvantages, to achieve success in the classroom or workplace.

"Cultural capital really helps people be managers, it helps people understand politics in an office, it helps people build products differently when they're thinking about everybody that might use the product versus just the one community that they know. I mean the more you know and the more you can understand that we are the world and its important to think of anything that you are doing from different types of lenses, a lot of that has to do with how you grew up."

Meet our newest Featured Torero: Michelle Ebony Hardy '12 MA, an Executive Producer, Showrunner, Director, Writer, Public Speaker, Brooklyn native and L.A. based USD alumna!

With a dream of becoming a sports agent Michelle’s talent landed her a highly sought after job at CBS Sports. However, after five years at CBS, it was time for a change and Michelle decided to pursue a career as a television and film producer. Hardy’s film experience includes working with Academy Award winning actor Denzel Washington in “American Gangster” and working on the box office smash hit “I am Legend,” starring Will Smith.

If that wasn't enough, Michelle is also the CEO and Executive Producer of her own production company, Simply M.E. Productions, where she creates, writes, directs, and produces diverse projects including the documentary “Game Changers: An Exclusive Look at Inclusion and Diversity in Hollywood" as well as “SHOWRUNNER.”

Looking back at her time at USD Michelle shares, "the entire university taught me the true meaning of community and I will forever be grateful to the University of San Diego: Joan B. Kroc School of Peace Studies and the University of San Diego"
