Being Brave with the Brave Ones

Last week, I spoke at the “THRIVE” Summit in Chicago, focusing on navigating and leading change for leaders and their teams. These individuals are the backbone of support for others to thrive, especially those who stand in the face of bias. They embody the power of care and love, intervening for the sake of marginalized communities, ensuring their value is recognized, and overcoming obstacles to productivity.

Let’s acknowledge the immense impact of leadership actions in fostering racial healing and gender inclusivity. By opening doors to racial healing and embracing gender diversity, we uplift all individuals, including marginalized LGBTQ+ Black, Brown, Asian, and Indigenous communities. Their resilience paves the way for a more inclusive and prosperous society.

It’s crucial to meet people where they are, outside the confines of our offices. We affirm their humanity and dignity by intervening in moments of discrimination and hateful speech.

Together, let’s create a world where every individual, regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation, is respected and empowered to thrive. Your leadership can shape this future—a future of inclusivity, compassion, and love for all.
