Adwoa Gyimah-Brempong

Adwoa Gyimah-Brempong (@adwoa_g) is a producer, editor, and multimedia storyteller who is deeply committed to co-creating story. Adwoa is a member of the 2019 Community Advisory Group and co-facilitator of the 2019 POC in Audio Meetup with Morgan Givens, all about the crucial question: how do we continue working on diversifying on-air voices, while keeping folks from marginalized communities safe — in spaces that historically have not seen the full range of their humanity (or made the space to do so)?

Continuing to live up to a disapproving kindergarten report card, Adwoa has trouble sitting still. She has lived and worked on five continents; her heart is split between West Africa and Oakland. She loves immersive multimedia projects, oversized tropical plants, and tinned fish. Adwoa is often seen in cowboy boots and a neon dress, headed for the nearest airport.

Adwoa is an alumna of Mills College and New College of Florida, as well as the VONA/Voices and NextGen Radio fellowships. She is currently a producer on The Record at KUOW in Seattle. Check out more of Adwoa's work here.
