Making Our Way Forward

National Association for Community College Entrepreneurship

NACCE is pleased to launch our podcast, Making our Way Forward! Our hosts are NACCE's own Dr. Rebecca Corbin, President & CEO, and Jeff Smith, Director of Innovation and Equity. They deliver stories designed to inspire, empower action, and heal vulnerable communities through community college entrepreneurship.Making Our Way Forward shares compelling life stories and lessons learned from everyday people with diverse backgrounds. They are women, people of color, veterans, immigrants, teens, and people over the age of 50 who are embracing entrepreneurship to make their way forward. We also spotlight the mentors, teachers, philanthropists, and unsung heroes who uplift others in the community.  With a base of 350+ member colleges and more than 2,000 active professionals serving over 3.3 million students, we have many stories to tell.  This podcast invites you into our world, where everyone is included, problems are viewed as opportunities, and failures are a necessary part of our collective journey toward a more equitable and prosperous future.NACCE.#NACCEPodcast | #MakingOurWayFoward
