Let’s change the world together. Have you asked what you can do to make a micro or macro change in the culture. Don’t assume someone is going to make things happen, be part of the collaboration and movement to “treat people like people”.
DE&I should be DE&I&A. Diversity, Equality and Inclusion and Assess.
Speak-up, Stand-up, and Collaborate
It is important to learn what you need and communicate and advocate what you need.
Being a trailblazer might be hard, but your brain, mind and spirit is you biggest strength. How you communicate can make a difference. Tact is important, but a mentor can help guide you.
Work for it, and learn how to get back-up when your down. Don’t list to “can’t”, because you can!!!! You might just zigzag through a different path to get to you goal. It is easy to say and I am not going to pretend that it hard and you need to be bold.
What is next for you!?! Stay busy, to allow negativity in the door or window!
