I describe my leadership stance that leans heavily into the intersection of race, class, gender, and ethnicity and its effect on an individual’s life experiences and worldview. The chapter addresses how I need to shift my thinking in applying an intersectional lens to research in a traditionally patriarchal African context. I am excited to visit Africa and embark on much-needed research with faculty women that has the possibility of expanding our knowledge of women’s leadership and gender equity. As I make necessary preparations to begin the research in Uganda, perhaps the most difficult things to attend to are my own thoughts and reflections. In this chapter, I explore the preparatory journey of a Black woman, a Feminist, and American visiting Uganda for transcultural leadership research.
