Dr Marcia Morgan
The Lord is my strength and my shield.
Marcia Morgan is a wife, mother, British Civil Servant, coach, trainer, writer and academic, whose research focuses on psychosocial issues related to black women.
Intellectual and Career Development
Marcia received her BSc from the University of Salford, her PGCE and MSc from Manchester Metropolitan University and her PhD from the Open University, England. Her academic articles include: Black and minority ethnic prison officers’ experience within HM Prison Service; Reflections of a black woman practitioner-researcher; and The psychosocial impact of prison culture on black women employees. Her first academic book entitled Black Women Prison Employees: The Intersectionality of Race and Gender is now available to purchase from this website. Marcia plans to publish her second academic book untitled summer 2019. Using autoethnography to capture the psychosocial experience of black women as an employee and academic, the rich texture of words encapsulates what it ‘feels’ like to be an intersectional subject within these two distinct organizations. Marcia hopes her second book will inspire and motivate black women to pursue and persevere to achieve their academic and career goals.
With over 15 years of teaching and training experience, Marcia has designed and delivered bespoke training courses for religious groups, youth organizations, charities and offenders. Marcia strongly believes in the importance of giving back to her community and has fulfilled many voluntary roles. She has experience in school governance and serves as a board member for a charity organization.
Driven, Determined & Blessed
Marcia’s determination and drive to encourage and support black women and people marginalised because of their uniqueness, stems from a position of humility and personal investment in others. Her aspiration is to generate confidence, skills and drive to ensure black women’s experience is included in British literature and research, by placing them at the centre of her analysis.
